SAN DIEGO (AP) — A pediatric nurse in Southern California has been charged with molesting his 2-month-old foster child.
The FBI says Michael William Lutts pleaded not guilty Wednesday in federal court in San Diego to a charge of sexually exploiting a child. He remains in federal custody.
Lutts was given custody of a 2-month-old premature boy Aug. 4.
The FBI says he began molesting the boy the same day and recorded images and video on a cellphone that was seized at his San Diego home Tuesday.
The FBI says it found more child pornography on computers, DVDs and other media.
Because Lutts’ job as a pediatric nurse gave him access to children, authorities are asking anyone with information about other potential victims to come forward.
Authorities didn’t have the name of Lutts’ lawyer to be reached for comment.
