Zakrzewski’s victims ranged in age from 2-12 years old. According to the investigation, he also showed another boy sexually explicit images with the intent to sexually abuse him as well.
The DA’s office said, “He also faced one felony count of using a minor for sex acts, two felony counts of distributing pornography to a minor for the purpose of engaging in sexual conduct, and one felony count of an attempted lewd or lascivious act with a minor under the age of 14.”
“Now, I am a full-service TrustLine Certified provider of regular and on-demand childcare, as well as mentoring services for children.”
At the sentencing hearing, parents of victims read victim impact statements, and one parent described the heartbreak she feels over never meeting the child whom her son would be had he not been the victim of Matthew Zakrzewski’s sexual assault. According to Fox 59, parents blamed themselves for letting Zakrzewski into their homes and leaving him alone with their children.
Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer described Zakrzewski’s crimes as those of a monster, saying, “The sexual exploitation of children is meant to destroy the smallest of souls, and this monster disguised by smiles and giggles engaged in the most horrific and calculated manipulation to ensure he would continue to have unfettered access to what these parents cherish the most — their children.”
Spitzer told Fox 59 about the trauma that Zakrzewski inflicted on these young boys, describing him as a predator wearing the mask of an angel, “These children will never know the people they were truly intended to be – because their childhoods were suddenly and inexplicably interrupted not by a wolf at the door, but by a predator masquerading as a Godsend.”
“These innocent little boys must bear a lifetime of trauma, and their parents will bear a lifetime of pain, knowing that they put their precious children in the arms of an animal because they believed who he said he was. We cannot undo the trauma inflicted so unnecessarily on these children, but we can do everything we can to help support these families as they try to put back together the broken pieces of their children.”
