We just spoke with Jason League, Chief of the Child Abuse Sex Offense Division of the Baltimore County State's Attorney's Office in Maryland to ask him for updates on the Dr. Miguel Frontera case. As we have pointed out, there are some strong similarities between the child molestation cases of William Ayres and Miguel Frontera.
Although Frontera has not yet been criminally charged, League said he has indeed been looking at all of the new details that have been provided about Frontera's activities from his former patients since news stories first appeared about Frontera appeared in November. Additionally, League told us he has been "studying" San Mateo's William Ayres child molestation case in his effort to make a decision about whether to prosecute Frontera
We hope ultimately League's office will decide to prosecute Frontera. After all, the Maryland Board of Physicians has already determined that Frontera had engaged in"sexual misconduct" with his young boy patients.
And by the way -- League told us that there's no statute of limitation for child molestation victims in the state of Maryland. If that had been the case in California, Ayres would have been arrested a whole lot sooner!!
UPDATE: January 8, 2010 : Meredith Cohn, a reporter from the Baltimore Sun told us that several new victims of Frontera contacted her after her story came out. Let's hope these new victims contact Jason League at the Baltimore County State's Attorney's office.
Meanwhile, we found a photo of Dr. Frontera on Facebook-- with two boys on his lap!
