Child molest hearing continues against principal

By Sam Stanton

Accused principal Robert Adams is back in court today listening as a Citrus Heights police officer testifies about evidence that Adams molested students at his private Creative Frontiers School over a period of years.

Officer Joe Rangel said he talked to two teachers at the school who described Adams touching young girls inappropriately, fondling their chests under their tops and behaving oddly.

"I've been waiting for this day," one teached told Rangel when he called to say he was investigating allegations of children being molested.

That teacher told Rangel she saw Adams touching children on their buttocks and thighs.

"She said that his eyes would glaze over and he would zone out," Rangel testified.

Today's hearing marks the second in Adams' preliminary hearing into whether he should face trial on six felony and one misdemeanor count involving inapproirate acts with children.

Just before the court took a morning break, Rangel testified that cops found suspicious photos in the Adams Folsom home when it was searched and that some had "sticky residue" on them.
