Former Citrus Heights principal has brief court appearance


Accused molest suspect Robert B. Adams made a brief appearance in court this morning on charges that he abused students at the Citrus Heights school he once ran.

The matter was rescheduled for Nov. 4.

Adams, smiling and appearing to be in a good mood, arrived with his attorney, his wife and daughters and was accompanied by a contingent of more than a dozen supporters all wearing red.

The hearing took less than 2 minutes for the former principal of Creative Frontiers School. Afterward, attorney Linda Parisi told reporters that the dozen or so supporters -- some wearing Creative Frontiers School shirts -- were there to emphasize how important the school is to the community.

The school remains closed, although Parisi said they hope it will be able to re-open.

Adams faces felony charges of lewd and lascivious behavior with a child under 14 and a misdemeanor charge of annoying or molesting a child under 18.
