Sex offender sentenced for groping Pacifica woman
August 23, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

A 26-year-old sex offender who groped a Pacifica woman walking away from dropping her kids off at day care was sentenced to a year in jail and ordered to participate in a rehabilitation program while in custody.

Jeremy Flynn Castro, faced up to two years in prison after pleading no contest in May to felony false imprisonment and misdemeanor sexual battery. Instead, on Friday he received the lesser term plus three years supervised probation on the condition he waive his credit for time served while in custody on $100,000 bail. He must also pay the victim $1,080 and register as a sex offender.

Pacifica police arrested Castro Dec. 23, 2013, after the woman identified him as the man who attacked her about five minutes earlier while walking near Monterey Road at approximately 9:40 a.m. that day.

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.
