An 18-year-old Joseph Haden Boston just turned himself into police after confessing that he had molested about 50 children throughout Southern California over the past several years.
Boston had told his mother how he had sexually assaulted an 8-year-old and 4-year-old boy at a motel, his mother took him to Riverside police, according to spokesman Officer Ryan Railsback.
CBS Los Angeles reports that Boston was recently staying at the Simply Home Inn & Suites, where he befriended the two boys, also staying at the motel with their parents. The children were allowed into Boston’s room at night, where the molestation occurred.
“Hours later, the suspect called his own mother stating what he had just done,” Railsback said in the statement.
Riverside Child Protective Services took the two young victims into custody from the motel.
Once with the police, Boston told investigators that in addition to the two boys, he molested “upwards of 50 children” since he was ten years old. These incidents happened in multiple cities, where Boston had lived, according to Riverside Police.
Boston was arrested on suspicion of two counts of oral copulation on a child under the age of 10. He is currently being jailed with a bail set at $1 million.
