OCEANSIDE — A 49-year-old man accused of having sex with a teenage runaway appeared in a Vista courtroom Sept. 17 to face charges relating to his four-month relationship with the girl.
Robert Jay Kaden is charged with statutory rape, committing a lewd act and providing drugs to a minor relating to his relationship with a 15-year-old girl that started in February.
Kaden, of Oceanside, entered a not guilty plea through his attorney at the brief arraignment hearing.
The teenage victim told police Kaden had sex with her throughout their relationship, which ended in June 2009, Oceanside police Sgt. Kelan Poorman said in a press release. In addition to having sex at Kaden’s residence, where he also supplied her with marijuana, they also had sex at local motels, Poorman said.
Police found cocaine, psilocybin mushrooms and other contraband when they searched Kaden’s residence in the 1800 block of South Meyer, Poorman stated.
Kaden remains in custody on $200,000 bail. A preliminary hearing was scheduled for Oct. 1.
Meanwhile, Hubert Dymitr Haraszewski Jr., a convicted child molester charged with molesting four boys, including one at San Onofre State Beach, was also back in court Sept. 17 for a hearing to discuss his repeated violation of a court order that states he can have no contact with any of his four victims.
Haraszewski, 33, faces a multitude of charges relating to lewd and lascivious acts against the four boys, who were all under 14 at the time of the alleged incidents, according to court records. Additionally, he faces charges in connection with child pornography.
Two of the boys, who are now adults, were from Ventura County and were allegedly molested between 1994 and 1996 when they were 11 and 12, court records state. The more recent victims are a then-9-year-old boy from Palmdale and a then-12-year-old boy who was allegedly molested at San Onofre Beach in 2007, which is why the case is being prosecuted in San Diego Court, according to court documents.
Deputy District Attorney Patricia Lavermicoccoa said Haraszewski contacted the two adult victims from his Vista jail cell. She said he may have obtained their contact information from court documents turned over to him by his attorney. Additionally, she told the judge he had pictures of the victims in his cell.
Through his lawyer, Haraszewski, of Los Angeles, told Superior Court Judge Timothy Casserly he didn’t know he couldn’t have contact with the older victims since they are now adults.
Casserly reiterated the previous court order that Haraszewski can not have any contact with the victims.
In 1996, Haraszewski was sentenced to nine years in state prison for child molestation out of Ventura County, according to court documents. If convicted in this case, he faces up to life in prison.
His next scheduled court appearance is Nov. 30.
