Senior Deputy District Attorney Mike Fell said 43-year-old Steve Michael Jones pretended to be a TV producer to persuade the boys to allow him to lick their feet.
He's accused of a Sept. 7 interaction with a 14-year-old at a San Clemente, Calif., restaurant, the Orange County Register reports.
Fell said Jones also licked the feet of four boys at a Dana Point, Calif., park and on April 13 licked the feet of a boy in San Clemente.
Jones has been charged with five counts of felony lewd acts with a child under 14 and a misdemeanor child annoyance charge.
He faces 16 years in prison, the newspaper said.
