P.G. School Found To Have Cameras In Kids’ Bathrooms

Creepy. Monterey Bay Charter School. Same one that had a teacher accused of child molesting in 2010.

School principal Cassandra Bridge told the Pine Cone last week that the school installed the cameras in the boys’ and girls’ bathrooms in 2013 to prevent vandalism.

While there’s a law on the books stating it’s a crime to place a camera inside a bathroom or other area where occupants have a reasonable expectation of privacy, police did not find that the charter school’s installation of the cameras rose to the level of a crime.

The school’s staff said he was about 19 years old, had a stocky build, scruffy orange beard and wore a camouflage jacket and beanie.

Police said the man had been loitering near the school for about one hour.

Sonoma County sheriff’s deputies said Patrick Lilley, 52, of Monterey, was arrested on a warrant for three counts of child molestation and booked into Monterey County Jail. An investigation by Sonoma County detectives revealed that Lilley allegedly sexually abused two students, who were under the age of 13, about two years ago, authorities said.
