Scotts Valley Schools Employee Arrested for Child Molestation

Carl Guerin was arrested on Wednesday in Live Oak.

Santa Cruz County Sheriff's deputies arrested Carl Guerin on Wednesday, the director of technology for the Scotts Valley Unified School District.

Guerin, 51, was taken into custody at an undisclosed Live Oak address and charged with felony lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14 years of age and misdemeanour indecent exposure.

The charges stem from accusations that Gerin commited "multiple acts of inappropriately touching children that he was acquainted with as well as one act of exposing himself to a child," Sgt. Patrick Dimick said in a prepared statement. 

While Guerin is employed by the Scotts Valley Unified School District, Dimick said he does not teach, and "it is believed that his crimes were isolated to children with which he was acquainted." 

The sheriff's office had been investigating Guerin since late January. Throughout the course of the investigation, additional criminal acts against children were uncovered, Dimick said. 

Anyone with information regarding this investigation should contact Sheriff’s Office Investigations at 831-454-2311 or contact Sheriff’s Dispatch at 831-471-1121.

Cameron; you may be a great guy but almost no one will know if you do not use close to proper English pal. Use spell check...PLEASE!

ALWAYS listen to the children. If someone touched my child inappropriately, they'd be lucky if the cops got to them first. No joke.

Jane, exactly!

So Jane, what you're saying is that you would shoot, maim, or kill the perp and then be willing to spend decades in prison, thereby depriving your child of any parental guidance, love, and support? Makes a lot of sense...

Seriously, a lot of screwed up things have happened to kids that get ignored because people don't just listen to them. Really young children can't just make up things like this, especially if there's a lot of them saying the same thing about the same man. That's proof enough.
