CA man pleads no contest to sex crimes
SALINAS, Calif. (AP) -- A California man has pleaded no contest to two counts of felony lewd and lascivious acts against Monterey Peninsula Unified School District students.
Monterey County Chief Assistant District Attorney Terry Spitz says 31-year-old Carlos Domingo Rodriguez III, who was a school bus driver at the time, was arrested in October.
The Salinas Californian reports (http://bit.ly/1dDj6ze ) that on Monday, the day he was scheduled to go to trial, Rodriguez entered a plea of no contest to two counts of lewd and lascivious acts against two 12- and 13-year-old girls, and threats to commit further acts against one of them.
Rodriguez will be sentenced in March. The agreed-upon sentence is a suspended 4-year prison term.
Rodriguez will also be required to register as a sex offender, Spitz said.
