SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a Southern California man who molested a 5-year-old girl kept her pornographic videos on his cellphone.

San Bernardino County prosecutors say Joaquin Gomez pleaded guilty this week to five counts of forcefully committing lewd acts on a child. He’s facing 50 years in state prison.

Gomez, a 53-year-old Rancho Cucamonga resident, was the boyfriend of the girl’s aunt.

Prosecutors say last August, Gomez accidentally left his iPhone at the home of the girl’s mother. She heard it ringing and discovered that Gomez had her daughter’s photo as the screensaver.

Authorities say she went to the police after discovering a video of Gomez having sex with her daughter, along with other explicit videos.
