Are these perps still in jail? Or are they again a danger to society. If they are out on bail, can someone post their addresses and mug shots? I want to keep my kids well away from them.

Innocent until proven Guilty. Especially in San Mateo County

DDA Ivan Nightengal prosecuted Michael Kazarian for 17 felony counts of child molestation.

Mr. Kazarian was in our jail for almost 1 year because he did not have $100,000 to waste on bail money. He was offered a plea bargain which he declined. He was found Not Guilty on ALL counts….thats 17 counts not just a couple, our DDA missed all 17, how did that happen?

To "lock them up"

Your rush to judgment is appalling.

Editor - What about the other local - the young man from East Palo Alto?

"Especially in San Mateo County"

Not in the rest of America?

My memory must be failing me... weren't you the one harping on APD harassing the wrong fellow awhile ago?

Is that a flip flop?

CBS News says "If you look at the statistics, 70 – 80% of those who are online looking at child porn have either molested a child or will molest a child". Web Link
Who feels comfortable having these guys free on bail?
