Thomas Hennessy, 76, of Pebble Beach was arrested by the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office on March 27 and charged with possession of child pornography.
Prior to Hennessy’s arrest the department had learned that someone at a Pebble Beach home on Sawmill Gulch Road was uploading and viewing child pornography over the internet.
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.
Is this what we hire?
Salinas police arrested a 35-year-old man on Thursday on charges of unlawful sex with a minor. The alleged victim is a 17-year-old girl.

Keeping the trail unsafe.

Might as well bring this picture back with an update. How are those sex offender programs working out, son of Pollacci?
Jordan Pollacci, 24, who is the son of convicted rapist Tom Pollacci, was taken into custody for misdemeanor invasion of privacy and felony probation violation after a man reported seeing Pollacci using a cell phone to snap photos under his wife’s dress.
PS, the KSBW URL link for it’s story is somewhat amusing calling Jordan a Pebble Beach Pervert –
Did you know that three out of the five offenders on Megan’s Law for the entire zip code 93950 are in Del Monte Park? Do the people against the Pebble Beach low cost housing know that? Do the people planning to move there know that?
He’s been in County Jail ever since the first trail.
He has been held in Monterey County Jail since the first guilty verdict but will now be moved to a state prison. While in the county facility, “he has received no disciplinary action reports or writeups” for bad behavior, according to Wouden.
Meanwhile, his parents have settled a federal civil lawsuit brought by one of Pollacci’s victims, which claimed they were negligent for letting their son, who was first convicted of sex crimes in the early 1990s, work in their liquor stores. A lawsuit by Jane Doe 1 was filed in federal court against the Pollacci’s. Late last year, a judge ruled they could be held personally liable for negligence. The family also sold its Pacific Grove and Carmel liquor stores, which are now owned by Lopez family, who also owns Lopez Taqueria & Liquor on Del Monte Avenue and Lopez Restaurante y Cantina on Cass Street.
Should I modify a “Parking for Ron’s Liquor Only” sign to say “Parking for Jury only”?
Judge Terrance Duncan said that despite extensive news coverage of Pollacci’s previous cases, prospective jurors will be screened to eliminate those who have been prejudiced by the publicity.
“There is no way he can get an unfair trial in Monterey County,” prosecutor Michael Breeden told the judge.
No Venue Change For Pollacci’s Next Rape Trial
Pollacci faces an additional eight years for each potential rape conviction. But if Breeden files an enhancement for sexual assault against multiple victims, Pollacci could face life in prison.
