Former Citrus Heights Principal's Molestation Case Will Go To Trial

Robert Adams faces seven charges of child molestation.

The former principal of a Citrus Heights school will stand trial on charges he touched numerous students inappropriately.

Robert Adams, who was principal of the private school Creative Frontiers School, faces seven charges of child molestation, CBS 13 reported.

The report detailed Adams' attorney's failed attempt to derail the charges against him.

“There are certainly questions of credibility that will have to be resolved, but with the level of proof that’s required in a hearing such as this one, I am satisfied there is sufficient cause to hold the defendant to answer on each of the charges,” CBS 13 quoted Judge Kevin J. McCormick as saying.

The Sacramento Bee described some of the charges against Adams, like that he allegedly slid his hand under the skirt of a 2 or 3-year-old girl who was in his office for a skinned knee.

Adams will return to court on April 4.

I approved a loan for the school some years back to repair its pool after it was damaged due to flooding. I was so happy to have been able to help this business and the man who ran it. It will be heartbreaking if it turns out that he is guilty of the charges. If he's not, how will he be compensated for the forced closure of the business that was his livelihood? If he is, well then, the closure will have prevented further indiscretions.
