VISTA — A Superior Court judge sentenced Hubert Dymitr Haraszewski to 600 years to life in prison relating to child pornography charges and committing lewd and lascivious acts against four boys.
The victims, all of whom were under the age of 14, were from Ventura, Los Angeles and Orange counties. In 2007, Haraszewski was arrested at San Onofre State Beach with a 12-year-old boy who had testified the defendant had molested him, and took naked pictures of him while the two hung out at the nude beach.
Haraszewski had pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity; however, in December, a Vista jury found him guilty and sane of the crimes, which date back to 1994.
Prior to his arrest in this case, he was convicted in 1996 of child molestation out of Ventura County.
