A 33-year-old pediatrician from Stanford Children’s Hospital in California was arrested in a pedophile sting after sending an underage girl pornography and showed up to meet her for sex only to be met by police who arrested him.
The Daily Mail reports:
Dylan O’Connor, 33, was arrested after arranging to meet up with the girl for sex in Redwood City, California, police said.
He had also sent her explicit photographs, they said. It’s unclear if they were of him or someone else, but the cops said they were ‘pornographic’.
He was taken into custody on charges of sending harmful material to a juvenile and traveling to meet a minor for lewd purposes, which are both felonies.
Redwood City Police started investigating him after receiving a tip from the San Jose Police Department about O’Connor.
The officers posed online as the girl and told him she was underage, but he still arranged to meet them for sex, they said.
On Friday, O’Connor drove to an address where he’d arranged to meet .the girl but was instead greeted by police officers and arrested immediately.
O’Connor was arrested on February 5, 2021.
Police also raided his home and are looking for other potential victims.
It is unknown whether O’Connor, who served at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford physician, is married or has children, but according to public records, his 3-bedroom house in Redwood City is worth approximately $2 million.
He has been removed from the Stanford Children Hospital’s website.
“Upon learning of Dr. O’Connor’s arrest, Stanford immediately placed him on unpaid administrative leave and relieved him of all duties,” a spokeswoman for Stanford Medicine said. “These are serious criminal charges, which we understand are still under investigation by law enforcement, so we are unable to comment further at this time.”
The San Francisco Chronicle adds, “The Redwood City Police Department is asking anyone who may have had a similar experience with the suspect to come forward and contact Detective Sergeant Nick Perna at (650) 780-7672. Anyone with additional information about this investigation can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or send information online at www.bayareacrimestoppers.org.”
When you mess with underage girls, you better be ready to pay the price. This one’s going to cost Dr. O’Connor.
