Sacramento Man Arrested After Photographing Young Girls At SCC Swim Meet
A Sacramento man at a swim meet taking place at Solano Community College was arrested after he allegedly sneaked into the pool’s girl’s locker room and took pictures of young girls. The suspect is listed as a staff member at the school.
One of the girl swimmers had come out of the locker room about 1:30 pm on March 6 and told her mother there was a man in the locker room taking pictures with a cell phone of her teammates as they dressed.
The girl’s mother then spotted Sacramento resident Jason Ray Paner, 33, whom she attempted to confront—causing him to flee. However, several other parents joined the chase and cornered Paner in the gym lobby, holding him until Solano County Sheriff’s deputies arrived and arrested him. Seizing Paner’s phone, investigators found several pictures of girls who appeared to be swim meet participants. They also obtained a search warrant to search his home devices.
Paner was lodged in Solano County Jail on charges of suspicion of possession of child pornography and burglary. The burglary charge stems from the investigators’ suspicion that Paner improperly entered the girls’ locker room with the intent of taking the pornographic photographs.
According to the Solano College Sports website, Paner is on the sports medicine staff. His biography reads “Jason Paner has been a student athletic trainer for the past five years, and is presently in his last year at Sacramento State. Jason has worked with Softball, Volleyball and football while at Solano College. Jason has also gained experience working for Cosumnes River College, and worked the Olympic Trials and Junior Olympics.” His career at Solano College has no doubt come to an abrupt end.
