Disturbing new allegations have emerged against a jailed California brain surgeon accusing him of raping minors for two decades and seeking to impregnate women so he could later have incestuous sex with their children.
Dr James Kohut, a married father-of-two from Santa Cruz, was originally arrested in late May along with his two female nurses, accused of performing sex acts on seven children under the age of 13.
Kohut, 57, has been in jail since May 14, charged with 11 felony counts, including sodomy, lewd acts with children, forcible lewd acts with children, and other related offenses involving at least seven minors.
The surgeon's nurses Emily Stephens, 29, and Rashel Brandon, 42, who were his lovers, were also arrested last month over alleged sex crimes targeting children.
Brandon was arrested May 9 and charged with 11 felonies involving child sexual abuse as well as multiple charges related to the production of child pornography.
Stephens, who was arrested at her home in Arizona on May 12, was charged with committing sexual penetration, oral copulation, and sodomy against three children.
Last week, Kohut's defense attorney filed a motion asking a judge to set bail for his release, which prompted Assistant District Attorney Steve Moore to write an opposition to the request detailing a series of shocking allegations against the suspect dating back to at least 1997, as Santa Cruz Sentinel first reported.
'For nearly 20 years, the defendant has had a fixed sexual desire to be part of multiple "taboo families" where the parents raise their children sexually,' the prosecutor wrote. 'He has a specific desire to have sex with a mother and a daughter. He then wants to impregnate the daughter and raise the child sexually in the "taboo" family lifestyle.'
According to Moore, multiple law enforcement agencies in several different states, as well as the FBI and Australian Federal Police, have investigated Kohut over the past two decades, but he has never been convicted of any crime.
The prosecutor claimed in his court filing Kohut preferred children between ages 6 and 8, and preyed on children in California, Ohio, Florida, Louisiana, Nevada and Australia.
