LAW ENFORCEMENT SEEKS PUBLIC’S HELP IDENTIFYING POTENTIAL ADDITIONAL VICTIMS OF MAN CHARGED WITH PEEPING THROUGH WINDOWS AND POSSESSION OF CHILD PORNOGRAPHY
WESTMINSTER – Law enforcement is seeking the public’s help identifying potential additional victims of a man facing charges of peeping through windows and possession of child pornography. Kyle Charles Scott, 21, Cypress, faces one felony count each of possession of child pornography, distributing obscene matter to adult, possession of marijuana for sale, two felony counts of possession of a controlled substance, and one misdemeanor count each of peeking and disorderly conduct. If convicted, Scott faces a maximum sentence of seven years and eight months in state prison and mandatory lifetime sex offender registration. Scott is being held on $100,000 bail and is expected to be arraigned this afternoon, Sept. 18, 2012, in Department W-2, West Justice Center, Westminster. The time is to be determined.
At approximately 1:00 a.m. on Sept. 15, 2012, Scott is accused of walking on the roof of 19-year-old Jane Doe’s home. When the parents of Jane Doe came out to investigate the noise, the defendant is accused of going across the street and hiding underneath a car. The defendant is accused of fleeing the scene on foot after being spotted by Jane Doe’s father, who called the Cypress Police Department (CPD). CPD officers located the defendant running in the neighborhood and arrested him.
At his home, Scott is accused of possessing child pornography on a computer hard drive which included nude video footage and photos of neighborhood women and girls. He is also accused of possessing over two pounds of marijuana, an ounce and a half of cocaine, and two psilocybin mushrooms.
The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with additional information or who may have been a victim is encouraged to contact Supervising District Attorney Investigator Lou Gutierrez at (714) 347-8794 or CPD at (714) 229-6624.
