Male nanny sentenced to over 700 years in prison for sexually assaulting 16 boys in California
A male nanny was sentenced to over 700 years in prison for sexually assaulting 16 boys under his care in California Friday, according to a news release from the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.
Matthew Antonio Zakrzewski, 34, was found guilty of charges including sexually assaulting 16 boys ranging in age from two to 12 years old under his care, and showing an additional boy child pornography with the intent to sexually assault him. He filmed many of his crimes on the children, which he committed between January 2014 to May 2019 in Southern California, according to the district attorney’s office.
Zakrzewski, who called himself “the original Sitter Buddy” on his website, was arrested in May 2019 after a Laguna Beach couple reported to police that he’d touched their eight-year-old son inappropriately. He was found at a local airport and was deplaned from an international flight.
He was initially charged with three felony counts of lewd and lascivious acts with a minor under 14, one felony count of oral copulation of a child under 10 and one felony count of possession of child pornography, according to the district attorney’s office.
