ORIGINAL POST, JUNE 13, 11:26 A.M.: Robert Ruben Ornelas' mugshot is beyond the Ugliest Police Mugshot of the Week. Indeed, it's The Police Mugshot Most Likely to Make Phil Spector Jealous. The former Santa Ana teacher, girls softball coach and day-care worker's alleged crime is ugly: molesting a girl, age 12 or younger, from 1990-95.
