Deputy District Attorney Kelly Kraetsch said Hershel Louis Korngut (dob 1/6/84) of Los Angeles faces two felony counts of lewd act upon a child, one felony count of possession of child or youth pornography and one misdemeanor count each of indecent exposure and sexual battery.

Arraignment is scheduled today in Department 100 of the Los Angeles County Superior Court, Van Nuys Branch. Case LA087938 was filed on March 1.

Korngut allegedly exposed and rubbed himself against the unwitting victims on Jan. 1, the prosecutor said.
