Bradley Gietz's McDonalds Co-Worker/Roommate Also Arrested on Kiddie Porn Charges

Alleged pederast Bradley Gietz and Jose Luis Juarez have a few things in common. For starters, they both work at a McDonalds. They also live together. They also allegedly like sexually abusing little kids and posting photos and video of the abuse on the Internet.

As we reported yesterday, one of the kids was Gietz's own son.

In addition to Gietz getting arrested last week for a slue of kiddy-porn/child molestation charges, Juarez also got popped for his own collection of child erotica.

According to court documents obtained by New Times, an FBI investigation into a kiddie-porn video found on the Internet led authorities to the Phoenix apartment shared by Gietz and Juarez.

In addition to photos of Gietz sexually abusing his then 7-year-old son, they also found video of Juarez molesting a young boy as the kid was playing with some toys.

At one point, a man in the video -- identified later by the boy's parents as Juarez -- is seen about to touch the boy's anus as the kid was naked and playing with some toys. The boy kicked Juarez's hand away.

In another instance, the boy yells "ewww" as Juarez allegedly touched him with his penis.

The boy was identified and his parents were told of the abuse. They identified Juarez as the man in the video and said they recognized the toys in the video as belonging to their son.

Juarez was booked on one count each of molestation of a child, sexual exploitation of a child, and attempted molestation of a child.

Gietz, who you can read more about here, was booked on four counts of molestation of a child, 16 counts of exploitation of a minor, and 14 counts of sexual conduct with a minor.
