Charges Filed Against Fake "Twilight" Actor



A California man who police say claimed to be an actor from the ``Twilight'' movie series to entice girls faces several charges in Iowa including sexual abuse. The Newton Police Department and Jasper County Sheriff's Office say 33-year-old David A. LaVera faces multiple charges in connection with incidents involving minors. The charges include third-degree sexual abuse, sexual exploitation of a minor and invasion of privacy. Authorities say LaVera performed a sex act on a 14-year-old girl and used a smartphone to record a 12-year-old girl taking a shower, among other allegations.  LaVera was previously accused of telling a victim he was an actor from the ``Twilight'' movie series in order to entice her to a park.
