YUCCA VALLEY, Ca. – A Yucca Valley father was arrested on Wednesday for the distribution of child pornography.
A cyber tip reported by an Electronic Service Provider (ESP) led to the investigation focusing on 34-year-old Jonathan Marriott. On February 3, 2021, authorities made contact with Marriott at his home in the 60200 block of La Mirada Trail. An interview was conducted, leading to the arrest of Marriott.
Marriott was booked into the Morongo Basin Detention Center for the Distribution of Child Pornography. Marriott was being held in lieu of $25,000 bail and has since been bailed out of jail. Authorities said that Marriott’s family operates a licensed in-home daycare. It is not believed any of the children cared for at the daycare were victims.
