Salinas interpreter molests deaf students
July 14, 2014
A former sign language interpreter for deaf students at North Salinas High School pled no contest to sexually molesting three underage students, officials announced Friday.
On March 14, school authorities contacted the Salinas Police Department to report inappropriate sexual contact between Adam Frogel, 56, and several 15 to 16-year-old students. Frogel touched two of the children over their clothing and asked another to have sexual relations with him, officials said.
According to a complaint filed earlier this year, some of the alleged activity took place in a car and in a hotel room.
Frogel pled no contest to felony exhibition of harmful material to a minor, misdemeanor child molestation, and battery and will be sentenced to felony probation on Sept. 5.
