Man gets 4 years for child molesting


Defense lawyer Meredith Reeves said her client wanted to accept responsibility for his actions, “close this chapter and move on.”

The original terms of the plea agreement had called for Hare to spend three years on probation after his release.

However, Judge John Lu called the attorneys to the side of his bench, where he said he believed a longer probation term would be appropriate. As a result, Hare will spend five years on probation after he is released.

Hare was ordered again to have no contact, directly or through third parties or social media, with the girl and her family as a condition of the sentence.

During his probation, Hare will be required to register as a sex offender, undergo an evaluation and treatment for sex offenders as recommended by a probation officer, wear a GPS bracelet, and have no unsupervised contact with children under 16.

He was also ordered to undergo random alcohol and drug testing.
