Posted on 03/09/2006 9:37:30 AM PST by CrawDaddyCA
A teen baby sitter in Central Florida was arrested after a parent's hidden camera videotaped him forcing two 8-year-olds to perform sex acts on him, according to investigators.
Flagler County detectives said the father of two children who Brandon Jaffe, 15, was baby sitting recently decided to set up a surveillance camera to watch the 15-year-old and his kids.
The video captured Jaffe forcing the young children to perform oral sex on him, a police news release said.
The high school student faces 11 felony counts of lewd and lascivious battery on a child.
"These type of cases require us to be very meticulous in collecting evidence. We will continue to review all facets of this case until the investigation is completed," said Flagler County Sheriff Donald W. Fleming.

A 15-year-old BOY, babysitting your kids???
Too good for the little perv.
I'd want the punk perv dead, too.
I'm just not sure what this family was thinking, hiring a 15-year-old BOY to babysit their kids.
If any of you have known 15-year-old boys--or if you've ever BEEN one--you know that they are just a ticking timebomb of hormones. And rational thinking and self-control are not their strong suits.
If you ever feel like you have to videotape the person watching your children, you probably shouldn't have them watching your children.
What disturbes me most about this story, is why did the parents feel the need to have a hidden camera in the first place?
And if they didn't trust this 15 year old boy, and had the camera in place for that reason, why oh why would they let him watch their precious children, alone, to catch him in the act? It's like, they knew he was bad news and put their children out as bait.
First of all, I don't think boys should be baby sitters. Nothing against the male species, but in my experience, most aren't very good care takers of younger children at a teen age.
Secondly, before I leave my children with anyone, I make sure I can fully trust them, not just in my house, but with my kids, completely.
I agree completely. Couldn't have said it better myself--I didn't, in fact. (See Post 7.)
Call me a sexist... but I would NEVER let a boy babysit my kids.
We must have been posting at the same time...great minds think alike ya know... :)
Alleged perpetrator (l) pictured with his family.
Maybe the kid had previously complained that the littles ones, were really bad kids, and the parents were looking at their kids...
I think the parents would and should know if their kids were "really bad" to begin with and wouldn't need a video surveillance to find out. IMO, if a teen babysitter told me my kids were behaving badly in his presence, I would probably look into a different care taker. I wouldn't trust the teen babysitter would be able to "discipline" misbehaving children properly and I wouldn't assume he could and want to watch behind the scenes without being able to influence how everyone was behaving, especially someone watching my children first hand. But that's just me. You may have a point to some degree with these folks, as it seems they aren't too bright.
hmmm, my son is almost 16.
When he was 14 & 15 he used to babysit some of the neighbor kids. They loved him & requested him because he played and rough housed with them...didn't just plant them in front of a tv and talk on the phone (like some girls). Now he's into other things and no longer interested in babysitting. (He makes more money cutting grass with less aggravation).
My daughter is older than my son and babysat also. Nothing wrong with kids babysitting to earn some extra money. Gives kids a taste of responsibility.
The kid in the article was a perv - his babysitting just gave him an opportunity and Thank God he was caught. Sad for the kids involved...
Well, you asked why, and that is just one possibility. We probably won't know for sure.
The sitter is still alive?
The dad shows great restraint
I've been a 15 year old boy, although it's been a while. :)
While I was indeed often raging with hormones, the thought of doing such a thing would never have crossed my mind.
Hormones provide the fuel, they don't determine what route you take.
OH...you're just too darn fast......
I'm glad your son is upstanding. I, however, would never hire your teenaged son and entrust him with the care of my children. Not in this day and age.
Unfortunately, teen boys and parents of teen boys also need to take into account the possibility of FALSE charges of molestation being leveled. It's sad, but in this day and age, no male should ever be alone with any children that are not his own family members; because you never know who is going to say he did what, and the accused will be considered guilty until he can prove his innocence.
Sad, but that's how far we've sunk as a society.
When my kids were small I never had a "babysitter". My friends and I took swapped turns watching the kids - so they were always with an adult.
Now we live in a small neighborhood. The neighbors know my kids and our family. My kids took the Red Cross babysitter class and the experience was good for both my daughter and my son.
They also learned that they didn't make a great deal of money for the level of responsibilty.
My son makes $35-$50 per lawn cutting grass - might take him an hour and a half tops.
If the kids were paid $3 an hour to watch a bunch of small kids they were lucky.
Do the math.
Makes you wonder what we consider important in life.
In this day and age I wouldn't leave my kids with any teenager....mostly we chose not to go out.
