REDWOOD CITY (AP) — A Redwood City man has been sentenced to nine years in state prison for molesting young boys when he was working as a part-time babysitter.
The Mercury News reported 32-year-old Angel Leopoldo Gutierrez Monney was sentenced Friday to nine years in prison and ordered to register as a sex offender.
He pleaded no contest in August to several felony charges relating to child molestation and distribution of child pornography.
Prosecutors say Gutierrez Monney was working as a babysitter for one family and was able to charm multiple families and children who became his victims.
The San Mateo County Sheriff’s office launched an investigation last year after a tip from a concerned father.
Gutierrez Money was arrested in September 2018 on suspicion of sexually abusing at least 16 boys.
