School Principal Pleads to Child Molestation Charges

DATE:  March 9, 2016

CASE:  Robert Adams

PROSECUTOR:  Deputy District Attorney Kevin Jones, Adult Sexual Assault Prosecution Unit

Sixty-four-year-old Robert Adams pled no contest to six counts of misdemeanor child molestation stemming from allegations that date as far back as 1998.

Adams was the owner and principal of Creative Frontiers School in Citrus Heights.  By pleading no contest, the court found Adams guilty of the allegations that from 1998 through 2011 he molested six female students, whose ages ranged from 4 to 8 years old.  The molestations occurred while on campus and during school hours.  Adams’ conduct included touching the bare chests of children under their clothes while they sat on his lap or when they were lying down during nap time.

Pursuant to the plea agreement, Adams may be sentenced to a maximum 2 years in county jail, and will be required to register for life as a sex offender.   Sentencing is set for April 1, 2016, at 8:30 a.m. in Department 63 before the Honorable Joseph Orr.
