Convicted sex offender settles flashing, annoyance cases
February 01, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Allan Meaney

A convicted sex offender facing life in prison for flashing a mother and child at a Christmas tree lot and, while out on bail four months later, reportedly harassing several San Bruno children, settled both cases for no more than nearly nine years in prison.

Allan Wayne Meaney, 68, pleaded no contest to felony charges of indecent exposure and child annoyance, both with the allegations he has prior convictions, on the second day of his jury trial. Under the negotiated plea deal, Meaney faces up to eight years and eight months prison when sentenced March 12 but a judge can consider not counting one of his prior criminal strikes. Had Meaney stood trial and been convicted as a third striker, he was looking at possibly 25 years to life in prison.

In the first case, a woman reported spotting Meaney grabbing himself through an open zipper Dec. 1, 2012, 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 2013 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 whom 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children and was once detained at a state facility as a mentally disordered sex offender, a label that has since been replaced by the term “sexually violent predator.”

Prior to trial, Meaney’s defense attorney questioned his ability to stand trial but a majority of court-appointed doctors deemed him competent. Meaney remains in custody on $1 million bail.
