A Long Beach man was sentenced Friday to 128 years and four months to life in prison for sexually assaulting a family member in Costa Mesa for more than a year, starting when she was 9 months old, and circulating videos of his acts online.Ryan Michael Booth, 32, was convicted in March of multiple felony counts of sexually assaulting a child, using a child for obscene matter and possession of child pornography.
Booth molested the girl until she was 2, and made four videos of himself sexually assaulting the baby in her crib, according to Deputy District Attorney Rick Zimmer.
Law enforcement officers who testified at his December 2015 preliminary hearing said he had 220,000 images of child porn on a hard drive in his home computer, which also contained 2,000 child porn videos and 150 images of the victim.
Los Angeles police detective Eric Good testified that the defendant told him “he liked girls between the ages of, I believe, it was 9 to 12.”
Booth also told the detective that he had been downloading child pornography on and off since high school.
