HAWTHORNE, CA—How much is that little slap in the window?
According to Hawthorne police, that clean swipe of a child’s cheek can cost one quite a bit.
Pool worker Rodolfo Dominguez Hernandez, 55, was picked up by Hawthorne Police on Tuesday, January 28 at approximately 11 p.m. He was charged with annoying/etcetera a child ((647.6(A)PC)) and willful cruelty to children ((237A(A)PC))as well as subject to deportation proceedings pursuant to a federal felony charge named under “8 1251US.”
The slim-lined, 6-foot tall Hawthorne resident was picked up along the 3600 block of 132nd Street.
Bail was set at $20,000 for the child annoyance charge and an additional $100,000 tacked on for the willful cruelty attempt. It was not disclosed where, how or if he actually slapped any child.
The next time a pool boy gets out of league with his equipment, he might reconsider what he does with it lest he get cleaned out for a few years’ worth of vacuuming.
