RIVERSIDE, Calif. (KABC) -- An 18-year-old Lakewood man confessed to molesting upwards of 50 children after his mother turned him in to authorities in Riverside early Saturday, police say.

Detectives believe Joseph Hayden Boston has victimized children who have not yet come forward, according to Riverside police.

A Riverside police sergeant was flagged down at about 3 a.m. at the Magnolia Avenue Police Station by Boston's mother, who said she wanted to turn her son in for suspected molestation.

Officers learned that the suspect called his mother and said he had molested two young children hours earlier. The woman drove to her son's location and took him to the police station, where he later confessed to officers.

3. "admitted to molesting more than 50 kids since he was 10 years old"

Betting he too was molested as a child.
But, one real sick guy.

4. Wonder what caused his remorse on this occasion (and if we can somehow bottle it) . . .

5. WaPo story.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/true-crime/wp/2017/12/04/a-teen-told-police-hes-molested-at-least-50-children-authorities-say/?tid=sm_tw&utm_term=.cf33070896a1

Inside the police station, Joseph Boston told investigators that, yes, he had lured two boys into his motel room and molested them — but there was much more to his story than that, according to police in Riverside, Calif.

Riverside police said that on Saturday the 18-year-old went on to detail how he had molested “upwards of 50 children” in cities across Southern California for nearly a decade. He’d been molesting children since he was 10, police said.

The open confession rattled investigators, who spent the weekend retracing Boston’s tracks over nearly half his life, looking for a trail of young victims, police said.

“This is going to affect not only the victims for a long time but also our detectives and officers involved in this — to hear someone just be very open about what they’ve done, and they’re only 18 themselves,” Officer Ryan Railsback, of the Riverside police, told Los Angeles ABC affiliate KABC.
