Dad to trial for allegedly molesting paralyzed daughter
July 18, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

A 55-year-old San Mateo man accused of molesting his paralyzed 11-year-old daughter while her mother took walks will stand trial on multiple felonies, a judge ruled after a preliminary hearing.

Judge Donald Ayoob did not hold the man, whom the Daily Journal is not naming to protect the identity of the alleged victim, on charges of forcible molestation and making threats but found sufficient evidence of the lesser charges of molestation without using force or threat. Ayoob also increased the man’s $600,000 bail to $1 million and he remains in custody. He will enter a Superior Court plea July 31 and potentially set a trial date.

The girl, who is paralyzed and requires a wheelchair, told a school principal that her father molested her between fifth- and seventh-grade monthly while her mother was away from the family home on walks. The principal contacted San Mateo police and the girl further detailed multiple acts of oral copulation and one act of sodomy, prosecutors said.

The girl called her father at police request during which prosecutors say he made multiple admissions of guilt.
