Jarrid Thomas Baldogo, Tennis Instructor, Gets a Year for Sex Acts with 13 y.o. Boy

Thumbnail image for jarrid-thomas-baldogo_irvine-pd.jpg
A 29-year-old tennis instructor pleaded guilty Thursday to committing lewd acts on a 13-year-old male student in Irvine and was immediately sentenced to a year in jail.

Jarrid Thomas Baldogo of Irvine pleaded guilty to eight felony counts of committing a lewd act on a child younger than 14, and besides the jail time he received five years probation and an order to register as a sex offender for life.

Jarrid Thomas Baldogo, Tennis Instructor, Held for Alleged Lewd Conduct with 13 y.o. Student

If Baldogo violates his probation, he will be subject to 22 years in state prison, according to Orange County Deputy District Attorney Bobby Taghavi, who explained to City News Service that the boy's family wanted the matter resolved quickly and without going to trial.

A private tennis instructor specializing in ages 4 to 18, Baldogo worked for the Woodbridge Village Association in Irvine as well as in Los Angeles County at Westchester High School and Manhattan Country Club. He was hired to coach the boy in November 2012 and sexually assaulted the lad eight times in his car and apartment between December of last year and May, when he was arrested.

If Baldogo plans to resume his instructing career once he's released from custody, it will be problematic at courts in Orange County parks that are covered by Child Safety Zones that ban sex offenders, including those in his town of Irvine.

I heard Baldogo is out of jail?  Can anyone confirm that.  He didn't even serve 1 year...what a joke.  He should be locked up for good!

Andrew Brown you really think its funny to make light of this incident. You should get the raw end of a tennis racket shoved up your ass eight times for eight minutes every day for eight years punk ass

These light sentences given to rapists vex me to the extreme. I understand the lifelong restrictions of being a registered sex offender is also attached, but one year in custody is pitiful. How does this district attorney sleep at night? On eight separate occasions this man robbed a child of purity and innocence. This kid received a lifelong emotional and psychological scarring, and this chump gets off with one year. Why arent there mandatory minimums for rapists and/or child molesters? Its pathetic that this society generally punishes drug offenders on a greater level than sex offenders. Wake up lawmakers!

but the conduct of people will remain and that's not worthy for the children that are raped....my recomendation is more like study the conduct of people and see what does it make them that way so we can fix that and then get rid of the problem, no inmates will beat nobody and of course no children will be raped...remember that violence only creates more violence and it's endless.

That's 12 years fewer than what they want to sentence Joe Grumbine to for the insane crime of running a medical cannabis dispensary. Da fuck is wrong with this picture?

This is resolved by ruining someone Else's life?  Not in any practical sense it isn't. The registry now boasts 1 in every 413 American's (that we know of) are sex offenders.  Lawyers decide who is a sex offender now. Latest research shows low recidivism, except that with a jail sentence, the rate doubles and with sex offender counseling, it doubles again. They won't tell you that.
