Suspects Deny Making Child Porn

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A man accused of making child pornography with his wife said he never expected authorities to interpret his photos as something illegal.

The Sacramento Police Department said they arrested two people after finding pornography depicting a victim under 3 years old engaging in a sexual act with an adult.

The male suspect, identified as Jose Martinez, was an unregistered sex offender and had been convicted of assaulting an ex-girlfriend, authorities said.

Correctional officers tipped off police after discovering the photos being sent to an inmate by mail, allowing investigators to trace the material back to the suspects’ Sacramento home, where they found more allegedly illicit pictures.

In a jailhouse interview, Martinez said the photos were innocent snapshots of his wife bathing their young child.

“We wife took a picture when I was playing with him,” Martinez said though a translator. “She was bathing him and I was kissing his chest and legs.”

Other photos showed Martinez tickling the boy, but none of the pictures had “bad intentions,” he said.

“That photo, they are looking at it in a different way than what I was thinking,” Martinez said. “I didn’t think I was doing anything inappropriate.”

Child protective services took two children under 3 years old into custody.

The male suspect is facing five felony charges, including creating child pornography and oral copulation with a minor.

    Wow! Some people just have to yell to get their point across.
    That aside, Just how do you know that this so called sex offender didn’t get honored with the title for peeing in public? This is just the issue with all of these laws. We will NEVER know how all these people got their honorary title of sex offender unless we were in court the day they presented evidence. So many now have that title simply by peeing in public, which is gross but not sexual, or having a walmart ad of a teen in a bikini. YES! It has pathetically happened. There are so many reasons why one can get these titles, yet so many are unreasonable.
    Meanwhile it does not help the true victims or the real perpetrators get justice in our courts.
    These laws need to be changed and fast. For the betterment of all..

        Yes james you are making me quite proud to be a white mail. I personally think those of European ancestry have caused by far the most damage. Talk about “great ppl and values”. The country would be in much better shape if everyone of European ancestry went back to Europe. Get a life loser.
