A 46-year-old photographer in Shanghai was arrested after molesting a six-year-old German girl during a photo shoot last December, Huangpu district prosecutors said. The photographer, Li Botao, admitted to the crime, according to Shanghai Daily.
Prosecutors said that the girl was being photographed for a modeling assignment at a studio on Xizang Road in Huangpu district on December 27. Li was the director of the shoot and was assisted by just one other woman.
The child was accompanied by her mother, who’d at one point stepped into another room to look through photos. Li asked his assistant to get some more outfits for the girl, and when he and the child were alone, he molested her.
The girl later told her mother what had happened, and Li was detained the next day by police. Initially he’d denied that anything happened but later admitted that ‘the temptation to fondle the pretty girl lying in the bed’ was too strong.
