Sadly, that would be “Most Vile Pervert”. Way to challenge ownership’s ultimatium to V-Tek for web traffic, Brett Pedroia. From the Boston Herald’s Michael Silverman and Richard Weir :
Lt. Charles Wilts, spokesman for the Woodland (Calif.) Police Department, said Brett Philip Pedroia was arrested Jan. 9 for sex crimes involving a then 8-year-old boy in 2004.
Wilts said Pedroia, 30, was charged with two counts of lewd acts with a child under the age of 13 and two acts of oral copulation with a minor, both felonies. The spokesman added the alleged sex crimes took place in a home in January 2004. He declined to say where the residence was located or whose home it was.
Reportedly, Dustin Pedroia, 25, and his brother are not close and have not spoken in recent years.
A Gordon Edes puff piece on the Pedroia family from June of 2007 gives little indication Dustin and his older brother were estranged. Though it’s not necessarily something a family would volunteer, either. Let’s keep in mind, ladies and gentlemen, that in the United States Of America (and perhaps a handful of other countries I cannot identify), a person is innocent until proven guilty. And with in mind, I look forward to AOL Sports’ Lisa Olson extending the same courtesy to Brett Pedroia that she afforded New York Knicks accused sex pest Eddy Curry.
