Sentencing of ex-Miami cop convicted of child molestation continued

Police say Batman-obsessed Juan Roman called hard drive containing child porn 'batcave'

MIAMI – The sentencing of a former Miami police officer convicted of child molestation was continued Thursday.

Juan Roman was arrested last August after police raided his Biscayne Bay home, where they found numerous stashes of child pornography, including a video of him fondling a 6-year-old girl in his home, the Miami Herald reported.

Police said Roman also has a Batman fetish and often dressed up as the caped crusader and even had a tattoo of the superhero. They said he called the hard drive that contained more than 500 X-rated videos of young boys and girls the "batcave."

According to police, Roman placed a hidden camera inside one of the bathrooms in his home where he recorded himself molesting the child.

Police said the raid was carried out after federal investigators discovered that Roman had been trading child porn on the Internet.

The judge did not set a definitive date for the next sentencing hearing.
