"SAN FRANCISCO, California (AP) -- A man who may be one of the nation's most prolific child molesters is set to go to trial Monday, more than a year after police found journals in his home believed to detail the abuse of hundreds of young boys.
Dean Schwartzmiller is accused of abusing two 12-year-old cousins and is charged with multiple counts of child molestation and child pornography in connection with the boys, whom he befriended in December 2002.
If convicted, he faces life in prison.
Schwartzmiller, 64, has pleaded not guilty and intends to defend himself when his trial begins in a Santa Clara County courtroom. He recently dismissed his public defender.
When Schwartzmiller was arrested in May 2005, San Jose police found notebooks containing 36,700 entries, with codes for each boy's anatomy and personality. It's unclear how many actual victims are represented -- many of the line items are duplications, and police believe some may describe his fantasies. Nonetheless, police believe Schwartzmiller's victims number in the hundreds.
Police said he was also crafting a lengthy memoir about his sexual exploits with boys."
Wow, if this guy gets convicted, I think we should all throw a party. Perhaps he wasn't specifically any MSer's perp, but the entire world is done a favor when folks like this are put away.
