Hey, Girls: Did Your Driving Instructor Creep You Out?
Gholamreza Namdari, 55, of Foothill Ranch, was charged last week with two misdemeanor counts of child annoyance. If convicted, Namdari could get up to two years in jail.
According to the OCDA:
* On the afternoon of July 23, 2009, a 16-year-old girl arrived at her driving school in Laguna Hills to take lessons from Namdari, who during the exercise allegedly made several inappropriate statements to the girl about her appearance.
* That same afternoon, Namdari is accused of taking pictures of himself and a 15-year-old girl while she was driving as part of her lesson. He is also accused of making inappropriate statements about the second girl's appearance.
* On July 26, 2009, during the 15-year-old's second lesson, Namdari is accused of asking inappropriate sexual questions to her. He allegedly instructed her to drive to his house and asked if she wanted to go inside. The girl later told her mother what had happened, and the incidents were reported to the Orange County Sheriff's Department.
* On Aug. 5, 2009, Namdari is accused of leaving the 16-year-old two messages with inappropriate sexual comments on her cellular phone. Five days later, she reported the incidents to the Irvine Police Department.
