A San Mateo County correctional officer is accused of molesting a little girl over the course of several years, authorities said Monday.

Joel Olazabalgudino, 25, appeared in a Redwood City courtroom Friday on three counts of lewd acts with a minor, one count of a lewd act on a minor by force and one count of contacting a minor to commit a felony, according to the San Mateo County district attorney’s office.

Traveling carnival worker charged with murdering two women, teen girl

Traveling carnival worker charged with murdering two women, teen girl Authorities said the women, who were from Tennessee and Georiga, were reported missing earlier this year. James Michael Wright, 23, of Mendota, Virginia, faces three counts of capital murder, the Washington County Sheriff's Office said in a statement. Wright confessed to fatally shooting Elizabeth Vanmeter, 22, of Carter County, Tennessee, Athina Hopson, 25, of Johnson City, Tennessee, and Joslyn Alsup, 17, from Cobb County, Georgia, officials said. The deaths are said to have happened between February 28 and March 17.

Prosecutors alleged Olazabalgudino’s abuse of the girl began in 2012, before he joined the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. Olazabalgudino, who lives in San Mateo, was a neighbor and family friend who used to babysit the 8-year-old victim and her younger brother, officials said.

Olazabalgudino allegedly fondled and digitally penetrated the 8-year-old on four separate occasions between 2012 and 2015, according to court records.

Orange County middle school dean accused of molesting multiple students

Orange County middle school dean accused of molesting multiple students An acting dean at Westridge Middle School in Orange County is accused of molesting multiple students on and off campus. In an Orange County Sheriff's Office incident report, a student described to deputies being groped on his way to lunch toward the back of the school's campus on April 19. Other incidents are described, involving other boys, in a car and inside a home in Apopka while they played video games. The incident report also details claims of inappropriate text messages and questions about masturbation. The suspect also allegedly offered money for answers to lewd questions and to see boys' genitals, according to the Sheriff's Office report.

“When those we trust engage in criminal conduct — and that includes politicians, elected officials or government employees — when they violate that trust, it is more egregious than anyone else doing it, because we trust them to follow the law,” District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.

Olazabalgudino was employed as a San Mateo County correctional officer when he allegedly sent sexual Snapchat messages to the victim in 2017, according to court records.

Beaver County man charged in toddler stepson's death A Beaver County man is charged in the death of his 2-year-old stepson, police said Monday. Ty Lucente, 37, of Freedom, was being held in the county jail without bail on a homicide charge, according to an online docket. The Freedom police chief said Lucente told officers that he fell asleep with the toddler on the sofa after taking suboxone. Police said Lucente did not have a prescription for the drug. Lucente called 911, and medics performed life-saving procedures but could not revive the child, police said. Three other children -- ages 2, 7 and 12 -- were home at the time, police said.

He was hired in August 2016 and worked at both San Mateo County jail facilities, sheriff’s spokeswoman Rosemerry Blankswade said.

“The Sheriff’s Office is aware of and disturbed by the criminal charges,” she said.

Olazabalgudino was placed on administrative leave following the investigation. Prosecutors said he confessed to the abuse in a taped phone call.

A no-contact order between Olazabalgudino and the minor was issued Friday, according to court records.

Greshica Jene Brown, an officer serving at Kirkland Correctional Institution, was arrested Tuesday on charges of first-degree sexual misconduct with an inmate and misconduct in office.
