John William Smith age 48 represented by attorney Jeff Carr, He was charged with molesting his niece who was 7 yrs old at the time in 2003. She kept this a secret until 2011 when her mother was dying of cancer and she learned she might have to live with the suspect.

Why is this the first news of this case, why wasn't San Mateo County informed of the arrest and the charges?
