Suspected molester charged in 5 cases

At least he wasn’t dressed in a clown suit.

An update on this from Pasadena Star-News court reporter Molly R. Okeon:

ALHAMBRA A 42-year-old Fullerton man accused of inappropriately touching five girls during a San Gabriel elementary school assembly Monday was charged Friday with five felony counts of lewd acts on a child.
Daniel Roy Smith was scheduled to be arraigned in court late Friday afternoon, said Los Angeles County District Attorneys Office spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons. Smith is being held on $500,000 bail.
Gibbons said she believes Smith is facing a maximum of 16 years in prison, if convicted.
Smith, an outside vendor hired by Washington Elementary School to give an astronomy presentation, was arrested Wednesday amidst the allegations, which allegedly occurred while teachers and parents were present but went undetected because of the large crowd of students watching the planetarium exhibit, school district officials have said.
