Don't know if he is one of them, but a couple of the conductors have been jerks for years - hiding somewhere while drunk kids are being obnoxious to a car full of people, and officiously bullying milder folks who are simply picked on for very minor reasons

I (and I bet CalTrain too) wish that you would report people like that. I am sure CalTrain has a system in place to process complaints.

You might like CalTrain as much as I do if people did not allow their employees to treat people that way.

It says, " misdemeanor count of annoying or molesting a child under age 18..."

It can't be misdemeanor if molesting a child. It must be intending to molest a child.

To clarify, molesting as pestering or harassing, typically in an aggressive or persistent manner, could be misdemeanor. Molesting as assaulting or abusing (a person, esp. a woman or child) sexually is NOT misdemeanor.

I hope he gets the maximum penalties on all charges. Not only as justice for the victims but as justice for all of us who put our trust in CalTrain. We considered CalTrain as a commuting option for our high schooler to attend an educational program in the city. After this, we will either drive to the city or not attend the program altogether. How about more supervision on these trains so perhaps a pervert like this would get caught or fear getting caught?

Funny, I heard a woman call KGO's Len Tillem to discuss this case to make sure this guy got fired, and charged.

Apparently she claimed that she found out he had done this before and nothing happened to him.

The caller said her daughter, underage, was taken on some excuse to an empty room and told to perform a sex act by the man. She started shouting, burst out of the room and called the police.

If that story was correct, this guy need to be fired and put in jail.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
