Cypress man arraigned on child-molestation charges
Mandak Kohn Griffin, 30, faces multiple felony molestation charges, including sodomy on a child younger than 10 and using a minor for the production of obscene material.
Prosecutors planned to ask for a $1-million bail at his court hearing Monday in Westminster.
While investigating a tip that Griffin was exchanging online pornographic images of children, authorities discovered the alleged molestations dating back to 2000, according to a statement from the Orange County district attorney's office.
Prosecutors say Griffin lured the boys, ages 7 to 9, to his home repeatedly with swimming parties and a trip to a monster truck rally.
Griffin gained access to the children by befriending their relatives, prosecutors said. If convicted, Griffin faces a maximum sentence of 85 years to life in state prison.
