Former principal facing molestation charges still hospitalized

By Sam Stanton

Robert B. Adams remains hospitalized today, one day after his arrest on charges he molested students while serving as principal at his private Citrus Heights school.

Adams, 60, complained of chest pains when police arrived at his Folsom home to arrest him on six felony counts and one misdemeanor and was taken to a hospital.

He remains hospitalized this morning, Citrus Heights police Sgt. Alex Turcotte said, and there is no word yet on when he may be released. Once he is stable enough to leave the hospital, he will be booked into the Sacramento County Jail.

Meanwhile, his family continues to defend Adams, who has denied any wrongdoing.

"Thank you so much for all the kind words, prayers, and calls today," his daughter, Courtney Adams, posted on the Creative Frontiers School Facebook page. "We are absolutely devastated but I truly believe that truth will prevail and the truth will set us free. My Dad is still in the hospital for his heart. Please continue to keep us in your prayers...we need them so much!"
