Paso Robles police arrested a registered sex offender on Thursday for possession of child porn.

    I am thankful that the city of Paso Robles spent tax dollars to build a beautiful walk way down in the river bed so innocent people will be more accessible to these fine citizens. We have the capability to track these individuals and this dirt bag sex offender should not ever see the light of day.

    The Megan’s Law website lists Mr. McGuire as a “transient.” Odds are he’s NOT employed, rght? http://www.meganslaw.ca.gov/cgi/prosoma.dll?w6=666109&searchby=offender&id=18611084Z1547

    So, let’s see… this guy spends his nights sleeping in the Salinas riverbed I guess HE can live there but those eeevil families w/ATV’s would be fined] , wakes up, hops a bus to SLO town… then spends his days strolling thru downtown, perusing child porn at the Apple store…

    And guess WHO PAYS for this creep’s food, cell phone, cigarettes, booze, and healthcare! US!

      Very telling that he is “homeless” and living under a bridge in the river bed, yet he can afford a smart phone…

        Not just the phone, but obviously a data plan, assuming he downloaded the child porn into the phone…

    I saw this man being arrested and thought of the two men going door to door in the surrounding neighbor and wondered if anyone has checked on the number of homeless in the riverbed around the Niblick Bridge. We seem to have many more homeless on the streets in that area.
