Trial Starts for CA Man Believed to be World's Most Prolific Child Molester


Dean Schwartzmiller — a convicted pedophile who is reputedly America’s most prolific child molester — began standing trial Monday in San Jose in a case that could send him to prison for more than 150 years.

Schwartzmiller faces 11 felony counts and one misdemeanor count of molesting two 12-year-old cousins, both boys who live in South San Jose. A seven-woman and five-man jury is hearing the case, in which Schwartzmiller, who has denied molesting the boys, is acting as his own attorney and has pleaded not guilty.
