Former principal out of hospital, headed to jail

By Sam Stanton and Paul Kitigaki Jr.

Robert B. Adams was released from San Juan Mercy Hospital early this evening and Citrus Heights police are taking the former school principal to the Sacramento County Jail for booking on child molestation charges.

Adams, 60, is to be booked on one misdemeanor and six felony counts and is scheduled to be arraigned in Sacramento Superior Court Friday morning.

He was arrested at his Folsom home Wednesday but complained of chest pains and had been in custody while hospitalized until tonight.

A caravan of three police vehicles left the hospital after 7 p.m. headed toward the downtown jail.

Adams, who has denied wrongdoing, was charged Wednesday. His private K-6 Creative Frontiers School was shut down in July amid allegations that he molested students. He faces charges of molesting seven girls at his school over a 15-year period that ended earlier this year.
