There is one punishment and one punishment only if this turns out to be the truth. It involves fire and death. You can put it together.
According to LA Times:
Before dawn, a woman with her 18-year-old son in her car flagged down a sergeant at Riverside’s Magnolia Avenue police station with a startling request.
She said she wanted to turn in her son, who had earlier called her to say he had molested two boys, 8 and 4, in a motel room.
After interviewing her son, Joseph Hayden Boston, Riverside police jailed him at the Robert Presley Detention Center on Saturday with bail set at $1 million.
In a statement, Riverside police said Boston confessed to sexually assaulting up to 50 children in other cities, starting when he was 10 years old.
