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.

Taught 1st grade at the David Avenue private school for a short time. Child molesting charges entered in February were dropped in a plea bargain. Lilley has left the country for South Africa I am told.
Patrick C. Lilley
Patrick Charles Lilley, 52, an ex-teacher at Sonoma’s Woodland Star Charter School, pleaded no contest to a single count of felony child endangerment and was sentenced to five years’ probation. Lilley served about nine months in county jail after his arrest.

Better they watch the teachers than the students.
Budget cuts eliminated the position four years ago, but parents say the officer is needed. They point to the recent crimes around schools which include a drug arrest last week at Pacific Grove High School.

Patrick C. Lilley
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.
Lilley has worked at Monterey Bay Charter School since August, school director Cassandra Gallup Bridge said Friday.
