BOYNTON BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Boynton Beach Police detectives tell BocaNewsNow.com that they have arrested Ryan Paul Pleasanton on allegations that he repeatedly molested his daughter, 3, and kept child pornography on his computer.

He is in the process of being booked this evening.

According to a police affidavit, Pleasanton's daughter told her mother that he repeatedly placed his fingers inside her in a matter described as “sexual.”

When confronted, Pleasanton allegedly conceded that he has a problem, promised to seek counseling, and admitted to offering another daughter to a friend for oral sex when that daughter was just one year old.

Pleasanton has been charged with sexual battery on a child under age 12, and six counts of possessing child pornography. He will be transported to the Palm Beach County Jail.
