Robert Melvin Goode Jr. – School Administrator Arrested On Molestation Charges


A veteran North County school administrator was in custody Thursday on suspicion of sexually abusing a child for six years, beginning when she was 8, authorities reported.

Robert Melvin Goode Jr., 60, surrendered to the Oceanside Police Department early Wednesday evening, several hours after the agency announced that he was being sought in connection with the alleged molestation of the girl, OPD spokesman Kelan Poorman said.

Last Friday, Goode, who is married and has adult children, resigned from his position as a high-level administrator for three affiliated private schools: Classical Academy in Escondido, Classical Academy High School in Escondido and Coastal Academy in Oceanside.

From 1983 to 1994, he was principal of Tri-City Christian School, a secondary school in Vista.

Poorman declined to provide details about the alleged victim, except to say that she did not attend any of the campuses where the suspect worked. Goode, an Oceanside resident, was booked into Vista Jail on suspicion of committing lewd acts on a minor, continuous sexual abuse of a minor and oral copulation with a person under age 14. He was being held in lieu of $1.5 million bail pending an arraignment hearing tentatively scheduled for Friday afternoon.

Scott Phillip Johnson – Repeat Sex Offender – Pedophile Child Molester


A man already serving a prison sentence for fondling a 9-year-old girl was charged last week with molesting a 6- or 7-year-old girl in 2006.

Scott Phillip Johnson, 30, was charged Thursday with second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a child younger than 13. The felony carries a maximum penalty of 25 years in prison and a $35,000 fine.

According to the criminal complaint, the girl asked her mother what “molested” meant after hearing the term on television in October. The girl’s mother explained it.

Her daughter responded, “That’s what (Johnson) did to me,” the complaint said.

In an interview with investigators, the girl said Johnson touched her inappropriately during a card game of “Go Fish” at her grandfather’s farm in the summer of 2006, according to the criminal complaint. The girl was staying with her grandfather for about a month and was either 6 or 7 years old at the time, documents show.

According to the complaint, the girl cried, hit Johnson and told him to “knock it off.” The girl said Johnson warned her never to tell anyone or else “he would go after” her, according to court documents.

Johnson, who had been living on the farm at the time, denied playing cards with the girl and denied touching her, the complaint said.

According to court documents, Johnson has three prior criminal sexual conduct convictions in Minnesota and Hawaii. He is currently serving a three-year prison sentence in Moose Lake, Minn., on a conviction last year of criminal sexual conduct with a 9-year-old girl in Winona, according to court records.

According to the Department of Corrections, he is scheduled to be released from prison in December but will be on supervised release for the rest of his life.

A warrant has been issued to bring him to Winona County.

  • Conviction date: 12/18/1992
  • Sexual Abuse-1st Degree
  • Offender’s age at conviction: 28

Richard Brown – Repeat Sex Offender – Habitual Violent Offender

He had pleaded guilty to two counts of predatory sex assault in December, less than two years after he’d been released from prison. He’d served 25 years for a knifepoint rape in Westchester County.


A judge cited the “horror” of Richard Brown’s sex attack on a woman he accosted outside a Cortlandt supermarket last year, and sentenced him today to serve 15 years to life in state prison.

Brown, a 49-year-old homeless and jobless sex offender, was silent as Westchester County Judge Barbara Zambelli described how difficult it was to read the victim’s account of the Feb. 26 knifepoint attack.

He had pleaded guilty to two counts of predatory sex assault in December, less than two years after he’d been released from prison. He’d served 25 years for a knifepoint rape in Westchester County.

Assistant District Attorney Fred Green called Brown a sociopath who should never be released from prison again.

Brown targeted the 45-year-old woman as she entered her car after shopping at the A&P supermarket on Route 9A just north of Croton-on-Hudson.

Brown jumped in, held the knife to her neck and forced her into the passenger’s seat. He drove the car to a wooded area in Garrison, where he sexually abused her, and left her at Graymoor, home of the Franciscan Friars and Sisters of the Atonement.

A Graymoor security guard called state police, who tracked Brown down two days later.

At the time of his arrest, Brown had been designated a Level 3 sex offender – the most serious level – based on the 1981 rape. He was released in 2006 after serving the maximum amount of time in prison allowed for his conviction.

The case stunned people in Cortlandt and Croton, and brought community leaders and residents together to form a partnership around criminal issues.
