Horse rancher in child porn case accused of sexually abusing teen girls – The San Diego Union

It started as a child pornography investigation in 2014, when law enforcement was tipped to two files of lewd images uploaded to Christian Clews’ cellphone.

A search of the Carmel Valley horse ranch he operates and calls home found more — 841 images and 619 videos of child pornography, many depicting prepubescent youth in sadism and bestiality.

Prosecutors allege the investigation unearthed even more darkness at the ranch — a 25-year history of Clews sexually abusing, manipulating and controlling teenage girls.

Clews, 52, denies the abuse allegations, and he has not been charged with crimes of exploitation. But as he stood in San Diego federal court Tuesday to be sentenced for one count each of possession and distribution of child porn — crimes he pleaded guilty to — the claims of abuse dominated the proceeding.
