(Entravision) On 8/3/13, it was reported to the Sheriff’s Office that a 14 year old male had been the victim of molestation by a 57 year old male resident of Soquel named Steven Weissman. Weissman was later arrested for child molestation charges regarding this case and 2 other similar cases which deputies investigated. On 2/14/14 detectives identified an additional victim of child molestation from June of 2013 and charged Weismann with another charge of child molestation.
Weissman was a foster parent for approximately 16 years, has been involved in the community with youth activities, and has volunteered at local elementary schools. Investigators believe that additional victims of child molest may exist in our community based on the contact Weissman had with children in the area.
The Sheriff’s Office is asking that anyone with information regarding this investigation contact them at (831)454-2311.
