I am concerned for his children. I hope the police rule out the possibly of him molesting his own children.

"Police say they do not think the acts are still continuing." You have to wonder if there is more too it with one or more of his soccer players.

We are not Kern County so withhold judgement until the investigation is complete. Then, if Carbajal is found guilty, throw the book at him. But, if there turns out to be nothing to the story (as was the case in the numerous Kern County accusations), Carbajal will have suffered unnecessarily and will probably never get his life back to where it was.

The victims of the crime were all extended family members, and not Carbajal's own children, according to the police.

As I understand it, it is also very rare for sexual predators to stop attempting to find victims.

I know for a fact that Pedro had the opportunity to coach a young girls' soccer team in his club about a year ago. There were enough young girls to form a team of females under 10 years old. He refused to coach the girls because of issues that might arise with him or any other male coach. He attempted to recruit a female coach but that never worked out and the team was not created.

We're talking about extended family here. Maybe he is guilty, maybe he is not. I don't know. But these charges could end up being completely false.

Shame on the Mountain View Police Department for terminating their "relationship" with Pedro. He is ACCUSED. What the hell happened to "Innocent until Proven Guilty" I'm sickened by this. Pedro is in JAIL right now, unable to do anything. Certainly unable to volunteer his time with the police department.

i think we should free him!!!
i noe him and he has never done anything bad
this happened along time
and he can't be proven guilty
so i think he should get back to his children and wife

if he did do it, then why didnt the victims speak sooner they have mouths and could talk.
plus u never noe if the victims could be playin a joke on him
so no proof
then he cant be accused
free him!!!

I ask people to speak out if they know anything directly related to this case or the girls making the allegations. It would be a shame innocent man to go to jail if he isn't properly represented.

Also, write to a lawyer and ask them to represent him pro-bono.

Lastly and most importantly, write and/or go to local and national media and write to them about this story. With public attention the city/county will be forced to investigate this further, rather than the half-ass job they have been doing.

I know pedro and he used to work with my mom. The mother of the children who are accusing pedro of these molestation acts worked with him as well. Pedros wife is her sister. The mother of the children is a very malicious person and has constantly harrassed others at the job. I dont see why she wouldnt do the same to pedro. I know he wouldnt touch anybody and I know his children theyre wonderful. The mother would make sexual comments at work. I KNOW THESE AS FACTS! I also have previous knowledge that one of the girls accusing him was previously raped by her step-father, she told me herself and yet she pursued no action. I would love to talk to pedros lawyer about everything that i know because I used to be close to these people before the allegations, but I have seen this family try to ruin so many peoples lives and I dont think its fair if there is someone I can talk to please email me at babbieface142002@yahoo.com
