A man accused of molesting three girls, two of them over a yearlong period, pleaded not guilty today in San Mateo County Superior Court, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.
Jason Lokerson, 29, of Daly City, was arrested Sept. 23 after he was allegedly caught trying to have sex with a 13-yar-old girl, according to prosecutors.
The girl was at Lokerson’s house for a sleepover with his wife’s 13- and 14-year-old daughters.
Prosecutors say the victim was passed out from drinking alcohol that Lokerson gave all the girls when one of the other girls discovered him trying to have sex with her.
The victim told her parents and her school.
During the subsequent investigation, police discovered that Lokerson had allegedly engaged in sexual conduct with his wife’s daughters, who are not his biological children, from June 2015 to June 2016, as well.
He is facing several charges, including lewd or lascivious acts with a child and forcible sexual penetration on a child under 14.
If convicted, Lokerson could face life in prison.
He is being held on $9 million bail.
