Marina Middle School coach Stephen Pedersen, 45, turned himself into authorities yesterday after a warrant was out for his arrested regarding molestation charges of a 13-year-old student. Pedersen has been hit with with "three counts of lewd or lascivious acts and one count of continuous sexual abuse of a child."
And the best part? SF Weekly's Lauren Smiley uncovered the following eyeopening bit on him.
Incidentally, Pedersen garnered 3.9 stars out of a possible 5 on the Web site Rate My Teachers (there were 20 reviews). In light of Pedersen's arrest, however, this October 2007 review raised eyebrows: "eww pedersen??! ask some girls and they'll tell you wat (sic) they REALLY think of him....shudders."
Further proof that teenage girls know everything, period.
If you think you may have been touched anywhere in your bathing suit area by Mr. Pedersen, please contact Inspector Liane Corrales of the Juvenile Division at 415-558-5529.
