Update: Charges dropped against dad who defended son from molestation

You’ll remember this blood-pressure-raising story from two weeks ago. Jason Beatrice, father of a four-year-old boy who was reportedly molested in a Raynham, MA grocery store, was charged with assault after coming to the defense of his son.

I just heard from the Beatrice family. The charges have been dropped:

Dear Ms. Malkin,

My mom just called me to tell me the charges against my brother were dismissed!!!

As for the man who touched my nephew, he didn’t show for his arraignment and I haven’t heard anything more about it.

Thanks again to you and your readers for supporting my little brother and my family!

That’s the good news.

The bad news: The accused molester was a no-show at his arraignment yesterday.

Via the Raynham Enterprise News:

An elderly man accused of groping a boy in a Raynham supermarket bathroom reportedly failed to show for his arraignment Tuesday.

Market Basket janitor Valerio Rodriguez, 71, of Providence faces a felony indecent assault charge after he allegedly reached under a bathroom stall partition and touched a 4-year-old boy’s calf June 1.

A judge at Taunton District Court issued a default warrant for his arrest and added a “do not release” order to it, said Gregg Miliote, a spokesman for the Bristol County District Attorney’s Office.

“Once he is located and arrested, he cannot be released until he goes before a judge,” Miliote said.

That means a judicial officer, such as a justice of the peace, cannot release him on bail if he is arrested overnight, Miliote said.

As of early Tuesday afternoon, Rodriguez had not been located, Miliote said.

Gee, I wonder where he could have fled.
