“On Thursday, November 18, 2021, at 12:02 p.m., Investigators with the Turlock Police Department Special Investigations Unit (SIU) located and arrested 38-year-old Daniel James Baudino, in the 1000 block of Idaho Drive, in Merced, on additional sex crime charges. Baudino was initially arrested for other crimes by Turlock Police Detectives on November 1, 2021, which led to the discovery of evidence of two additional confidential victims.
Both victims were prior students of Baudino’s, however, they were adults and no longer students at the time these crimes occurred, which was in 2015 and 2019.
Baudino was brought to the Turlock Police Department and interviewed. He was then transported and booked at the Stanislaus County Jail on three counts of sexual penetration with force and seven counts of oral copulation using force.
Although three victims have been located, Detectives believe there are still possibly other victims who have yet to come forward.
As this is an on-going investigation, no additional information concerning this case will be released at this time.”
