Former Stanford pediatrician sentenced for felony distribution of pornography to a minor | News
A former pediatrician at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford who was arrested after trying to meet up with a 16-year-old girl, allegedly for sex, was given a three-year suspended sentence and will serve a year in the county jail, the San Mateo. County The Public Prosecution Service said this on Thursday.
Dylan Edward O’Connor, 35, of Redwood City, was arrested on February 5, 2021, after the girl called the San Jose police to report that O’Connor continued to sext her and send pornographic photos of herself as of November 18, 2020.
He had contacted her through social media, and the San Jose Police Department traced the Internet address to O’Connor. The Redwood City Police Department continued the undercover investigation, with an officer, posing as the 16-year-old girl, communicating with O’Connor, who continued sexting and asking to meet her in person, the DA’s office said.
The undercover detective arranged a meeting with O’Connor. Officers said he was carrying a blanket and condoms when they arrested him. O’Connor admitted to having a sex addiction, according to the OM.
O’Connor pleaded not to contest the distribution of pornography in San Mateo County Superior Court on Nov. 23.
