California Man with Arkansas Ties Sentenced to 150 Years for Child Molestation

JANUARY 29, 2007 - Posted at 3:40 p.m. CST

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - A man with child molestation arrests in several states over three decades and a knack for avoiding prison, was sentenced today to 150 years to life for sexually abusing two boys when they were about eleven years old.

Sixty-five-year-old Dean Arthur Schwartzmiller was sentenced in California on eleven felony counts of child molestation and one misdemeanor charge of child pornography possession.

Judge Edward Lee said that despite Schwartzmiller's legal savvy in getting some previous charges dismissed, he will spend the rest of his days in prison.

Police say Schwartzmiller abused as many as 200 boys in eight states. He had been arrested on molestation charges in Arkansas, Idaho, New York, Oregon and Washington.

When Schwartzmiller was arrested in June 2005, investigators found a graphic 456-page memoir describing sexual abuse, binders full of child pornography and 1,500 notebook pages with headings including ``blond boys,'' ``no, but yes boys,'' and ``best of the best, 13 and under.''

Schwartzmiller, who acted as his own attorney during his October trial, told jurors that he was innocent and maligned by a society that doesn't accept men who love boys.
