Of Course This Guy is Child Molester, Kiddie Porn Producer

We've made this comment before, and yeah, we're reading this book without actually dipping into the pages, but you don't really have to have a full dossier on Darin Casper to figure out this guy's deal.

Yes, he looks like a scum bag from central casting, but it's as-advertised. He's a child molester who produced kiddie porn while his wife operated a day-care center out of their Cleveland home. And now he's going to jail for a long time.

The 49-year-old pleaded guilty to 155 counts related to child pornography and the molestation of five boys. Police say the attacks happened between January 2007 and October 2011. When police went through his stash, they found 1,500 videos and images of kids. Casper was indicted last May.

Of course, the terrifying bit about this story is that Casper had easy access to kids. Since 2000 his wife has been licensed to care for kids between the ages of six and 12 out of the couple's home. According to the Plain Dealer:


Assistant Cuyahoga County Proscecutor Brett Kyker declined to say whether any of the children who were either molested or appeared in the pornographic material were under day care supervision at the time.
