Mesa Perv Videotaped Himself Molesting 1-Year-old -- and Others -- Cops Say
A Mesa pervert already behind bars for sexually abusing a 5-year-old boy has been hit with several other charges for alleged crimes even more perverse than the ones that originally landed him behind bars: sexually abusing a 1-year-old -- and others -- and videotaping it.
Brandon K. Jones originally was arrested January 7, after cops got word that he had been sexually abusing the 5-year-old boy. He was charged with three counts of sexual conduct with a minor and four counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.
As if that wasn't bad enough, during a forensic examination of Jones' laptop, detectives hit the motherload.
On his computer, Mesa police say Jones had video recordings of himself molesting the initial victim. They also found video of Jones molesting two girls, one of whom was 4, the other a 1-year-old.
Mesa police say they managed to locate the two girls and discovered they were sisters.
The girls were "under the care" of Jones' sister, with whom the alleged pederast was living at the time of the molestations, and he had "access" to them.
The new evidence against Jones has earned him a slew of new charges, including an additional three counts of sexual conduct with a minor and 27 counts of child molestation.
