LOS ANGELES (AP) - A newspaper report says a casting assistant who helped choose child actors for “Cheaper By The Dozen 2” and other child-friendly movies is a convicted child molester.

The Los Angeles Times ( https://lat.ms/uwCFHp) reports that 35-year-old Jason James Murphy has worked with children in Hollywood for a decade by using the name Jason James.

Murphy served five years in prison for the 1996 crime of kidnapping and molesting an 8-year-old boy in suburban Seattle and underwent sex-offender counseling.

Murphy registered as a sex offender in California in 2005, but worked under a different name.

California law prohibits offenders from working alone with minor children, or to have supervision or disciplinary power over children.

Los Angeles police say they’re looking into whether he is in compliance with state requirements for sex offenders.
