He was released on bail HOURS after being arrested on July 25 on two counts of "lewd and lascivious acts" with boys ranging in age from 8 to 13 years; these are CHILDREN. And 3 days later On July 28 nearly a MONTH ago, the Sheriff’s Office heard from other people who were possibly abused, including one person from another country, said Detective Rosemerry Blankswade. “This is just the tip of the iceberg,” she said, and then proceeded to cut him loose...

I suspect that he led two lives. One as a mover & shaker in the high-tech world & another as a mover & shaker with underage boys.

It is not that uncommon as some people have their personal demons to contend with.

We have all heard of these kinds of incidents in other areas & professions as well.

It's called "white privilege". Don't expect that to change any time soon.

Are you referring to my comments as being unfortunate and uncalled for? Why is that? This guy had every advantage in the world. He deserves a very long jail sentence but what is 'unfortunate' is that he can afford the best defense lawyer, and will likely get off with a much lighter sentence than someone assigned a public defender.

Unfortunate and uncalled for...give me a break.

Indicative of over-stated bragging online professional profile. Don’t believe everything people post about themselves.

This is not called white privilege. It is called a growing tolerance for rotten behavior that grows out of the Sanctuary City laws. They permeate a total disregard for the general population. Was there a judge that set the bail and let him loose? There is no mention of a judge. Time to have a new judge issue an arrest warrant and keep him in jail until his court case is scheduled. We seem to be in a position of running into people that are continually getting into real trouble then let loose on the street. We keep reading about people that are picked up for one crime then there is a list of other crimes that have occurred. Our area is becoming unsafe.
