Sex offender to trial in fall for child harassment
June 15, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Allan Meaney

A convicted sex offender once committed to a state hospital as a violent predator will stand trial in September for allegedly flashing a mother and child at a Christmas tree lot and later, while out on bail, reportedly harassing several San Bruno children.

Allan Wayne Meaney, 67, has pleaded not guilty to charges in both cases including indecent exposure, hit-and-run and child annoyance. He returns to court Aug. 5 for a pretrial conference followed by a Sept. 16 jury trial.

In the first case, a woman reported spotting Meaney grabbing himself through an open zipper Dec. 1 at a Colma Christmas tree lot where she was shopping with her 6-year-old daughter. The woman screamed, Meaney ran and reportedly crashed his car while fleeing. He posted bail and was free in April when a father called San Bruno police to report him lingering near children playing soccer. When the father of one child questioned Meaney about his presence, he reportedly said he was looking for somebody named “Jim” and continued returning to the location each time he was told to leave. The last time, he reportedly flagged down a 9-year-old girl in a school uniform who was asked four to five times if she had a boyfriend, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

Meaney has several prior convictions for sexual abuse against children and was once detained at a state facility as a mentally disordered sex offender. He faces a third strike and possible 25 years to life imprisonment if convicted in the flashing incident.
