A 71-year-old Pescadero man has pleaded no contest to multiple counts of lewd and lascivious acts with minors, and has agreed to a 10-year prison sentence, San Mateo County Sheriff’s officials said.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Rosemerry Blankswade said Daniel Miranda molested and victimized numerous girls over at least 20 years. Within the past few weeks, additional victims have come forward accusing Miranda of sexual assault, Blankswade said.

The charges were accompanied by an enhancement for using violence.

Sheriff’s investigators believe there may be more victims who have not yet come forward.

Anyone who may have had contact with Miranda, or whose children may have been in contact with him, is urged to call San Mateo County Sheriff’s Detective Sgt. Joe Cang at 363-4008.
