Lt. Chris Piombo had seen enough. The veteran Lodi Police lieutenant and occasional News-Sentinel contributor had the type of sexual assault case come through his unit that he'd seen too many times before: an adult male suspected of having sexual relations with a teenage girl. This time it was 21-year-old Arturo Garcia, who was arrested in November for allegedly having unlawful sex with a 14-year-old girl — for the second time in 19 months.

Appalled by the number of incidents, Piombo wants to get the word out in the hopes it may curb what he sees as an alarming trend. In the past year, one-quarter of sexual assault cases in Lodi have involved adults arrested for suspected sexual relations with minors, according to Piombo. There have been 15 such cases, Piombo said, and in all but one case the suspect was an adult male.
