CA: porn allegation, immediate termination

From the Lake County Record-Bee:

Youth public defender arrested for child porn

Lake County Juvenile Court public defender Robert Wayne Wiley was arrested Thursday for possession of child pornography, a felony under California Penal Code 311.11 (a). "We'll have no comment until the investigation is concluded," said Lake County District Attorney Jon Hopkins Monday...

Wiley's contracts with the county and state for juvenile public defense were both "mutually terminated" on Friday, according to the contract holders. Mary E. Smith, CEO of Lake County Superior Court confirmed that Wiley's contract with the state to provide juvenile dependency services was canceled in a Friday meeting at his Lakeport office...


Innocent until proven guilty and all that, but, oh hell... Thanks for putting us all under a cloud, pendejo.

I like your use of the word "Pendejo." It isn't used enough as far as I'm concerned and here, it is especially appropriate.
