Judge Russell Scott set a Dec. 7 trial date for Thomas Pollacci, saying he wanted to finish the trial before the end of the year. Prosecutor Cristina Johnson and defense attorney Andy Liu estimated it would last three weeks.
Pollacci, 50, was arrested March 3 for allegedly raping a woman on April 20, 2008, at his family’s Pacific Grove business, Ron’s Liquors. Prosecutors say the woman was unconscious and suffering from an inflicted traumatic brain injury at the time.
Remember, please do not spend your money at Pacific Grove businesses that employ sex offenders or domestic abusers.
