Mission Valley Couple in Court on Molestation Charges

Posted: Updated:
A Mission Valley couple accused of molesting four young children at the childcare center they operated in their apartment are scheduled to appear in court Tuesday for a preliminary hearing.

Mark Kaczmarczyk, 57, is charged with four counts each of child molestation and child abuse. His 43-year-old wife, Anita, faces the same charges for allegedly molesting the children, who ranged in age from a few months to just over 2 years old.

An investigation started in September 2007 when one of the alleged victims suffered vaginal injuries, prosecutors said.

Mark Kaczmarczyk was arrested in Taiwan when his passport expired. Prosecutors said he went to that country to set up a charity to work with young children.

After the preliminary hearing, a judge will decide if enough evidence was presented for the Kaczmarczyks to stand trial. Each defendant faces up to 60 years to life in prison if convicted.
