Sacramento Man Arrested For Molestation In Amador County

slide4Because Amador County is a popular tourist designation, local law enforcement must often become involved in crimes that occur here when victims and perpetrators visit. That was the case this weekend when on Saturday, June 2, 2007 the Amador County Sheriff's Office was notified by the Sacramento Police Department of an allegation from a minor that he was molested by an acquaintance while camping in Amador County. 
The alleged incident took place over the Memorial Day weekend at the Indian Grinding Rock State Park, Pine Grove, CA.  Both the minor and suspect reside in the City of Sacramento. The Sacramento Police Department continued the investigation and arrested Richard Toby Tinoco, 29, of Sacramento in the City of Sacramento for 288(a) PC Lewd or lascivious acts involving children.  Richard Tinoco was booked into the Amador County Jail with bail set at $500.000.00. The incident is still currently being investigated by the Amador County Sheriff's Office and Sacramento Police Department. According to the Sacramento Police Department Tinoco is a Sacramento area Little Coach and registered sex offender. However, he is not required to register on Megan’s List according to the Sacramento Police.
