Pacifica man pleads no contest to groping
May 28, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

A 25-year-old sex offender who groped a Pacifica woman walking away from dropping her kids off at day care is facing up to two years in prison after pleading no contest to felony false imprisonment and misdemeanor sexual battery.

Jeremy Castro, 27, will be sentenced July 10. Prosecutors wanted a full two years in prison but a judge said he would consider less.

Pacifica police arrested Castro Dec. 23 after the woman identified him as the man who attacked her about five minutes previously while walking near Monterey Road at approximately 9:40 a.m. Dec. 23

Castro grabbed the woman, groping her breasts and between her legs as she screamed and struggled, according to prosecutors.

He allegedly told responding officers that he thought the woman was his wife and it was a prank he learned on YouTube.

At the time of arrest, Castro was on misdemeanor probation imposed for a similar act in San Francisco in December 2012.

He is in custody on $100,000 bail pending sentencing.
