Probationer charged with annoying children
June 18, 2014, 05:00 AM By Michelle Durand Daily Journal

Margarito Bastidas

A San Mateo man on probation for trying to chat up a high school student on campus and touching her leg is facing new charges for allegedly approaching two different adolescent girls near a Burlingame elementary school.

Margarito Leon Bastidas, 21, is accused of pulling his vehicle near the curb of Washington Elementary School on Jan. 16 and asking to walk a 13-year-old home. She declined and walked away. The morning of April 17, prosecutors say Bastidas approached an 11-year-old girl walking to Washington and tried getting her to speak with him. She also walked away.

After Burlingame police contacted Bastidas, he told them he has “a problem talking to young girls,” said District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.

Bastidas was booked into custody on two misdemeanors but posted a $10,000 bail bond in May. His first court appearance on two misdemeanor counts of child annoyance was Tuesday. He pleaded not guilty and was ordered back to court Oct. 29 for a pretrial conference.

He remains free from custody. If convicted, he faces registration as a sex offender.
