Child butt-toucher gets five in prison
A man wearing a “rub me for luck” T-shirt who inappropriately grabbed a 6-year-old girl in a San Bruno Target store in 2012 was sentenced today to five years in prison, San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.
Former UPS driver Glenn Albrecht, 51, was arrested on Aug. 26, 2012, after the girl pointed him out as the man who touched her buttocks when she wandered into another aisle while shopping with her family at Target.
He left the store right after touching her but then returned while the girl’s family was still there and she identified him. The girl’s father hit him and Target security detained him, prosecutors said.
After reviewing the store’s surveillance tapes, police identified a second victim that Albrecht touched the same day who had not reported him.
Investigators were eventually able to locate the 11-year-old girl and interviewed her, prosecutors said.
Searching Albrecht’s home, investigators found a life-sized blow-up doll of a child and child pornography.
Albrecht pleaded no contest in April to two counts of felony child molestation and one count of possession of child pornography in exchange for a sentence of five years in prison, prosecutors said.
He was handed the sentence by Judge Jonathan Karesh this morning and must also register as a sex offender for life, Wagstaffe said.
Albrecht was remanded into custody this morning after being free on a $300,000 property bond.
He was released shortly after his arrest and will receive only 21 days credit for time served, Wagstaffe said.
