A multi-agency task force is investigating a subcontractor with the California Men’s Colony after discovering videos of the man having sexual relations with both a child and his dog, sources said.

Suspecting the 49-year-old plumber of marijuana, narcotics, and cell phone smuggling, investigators from the California Department of Corrections Office of Internal Affairs obtained a search warrant for Bradley Brainard’s home and vehicle, sources said. On March 26, investigators entered the unsuspecting man’s home in Atascadero while he was working at the prison. Inside the home, investigators discovered several pounds of marijuana, along with videos of the man sexually assaulting a child, and also his dog, sources said.

“He was arrested March 26,” said California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation Spokesperson Terry Thorton. “It was the result of a joint task force operation that included the San Luis Obispo County Narcotics Task Force, San Luis Obispo County Sheriffs Department, the California Highway Patrol Air Unit, the California Men’s Colony, and the Department of Corrections Office of Internal Affairs. Brainard was arrested and charged with felony trafficking of narcotics into a state prison. Our investigation is still ongoing.”

Atascadero Police Detective Rochelle Hanson has joined the probe and is working the beastiality and child porn investigation. She has not returned requests for comment.

Brainard, an employee of Inmate Day Labor working at the prison on a current project, posted a $25,000 bond and was released from jail on April 6. He is scheduled for a pre-preliminary hearing in San Luis Obispo County Superior Court on April 20 at 8:30 a.m. regarding seven counts related to drug transportation, sales, and trafficking at a state prison.

The San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s (DA) office has not assigned a prosecutor to the case at this time, said a DA receptionist when asked which deptuty DA could answer questions regarding the case.

    Its pretty horrible what drugs can do to good people…i hope this guy gets the help he needs to get clean and regain his families trust and respect. Its sad when you havent heard from someone you knew in several years and the next time you see them they are caught up in this? Very,very sad. My heart goes out to his family, who are probably shocked.RECOVERY HAPPENS….hopefully for BRADLEY

    I'm surprised that a librarian noticing child porn on a public computer wasn't blamed and fired.

    To discuss this breaking news, CalCoastNews should organize a live video roundtable ala "The McLaughlin Group," moderated by Booty Juice. Call it "The Booty Group."
    I love this Idea! membership based on telling your own variation of the Aristocrats joke.
    Realistically just how long can you discuss a story like this before sick humor takes over?
    hat tip to mccdave.

    This guy learned his morals from our moral superiors at Cal-Poly SLO?

    FRACTUREDFAIRIETALES so that's why those teabag parties are becoming so populist these days!Why we haven't had a publicly advertised lynching in America since 1957!

    Velie missed the most interesting angle: what are the odds that this creep will end up doing his time at CMC? Which fate is worse: being a plumber there unclogging the toilets or being one of the guests?

    What a second. How do they consume marijuana in prison? Do they smoke it? How do they get away with that — are they outside, pretending it's a cigarette?

    Another bail irony: Charles Lynch, the extremely dangerous medical marijuana dispenser, had to post $400,000.

    If you searched the homes of every employee and contractor to CMC and ASH, what would you find?

    Im suprised he could even afford 25 grand.Can you imagine what his peanut butter bill must have been ?Probably had cases of the stuff.

    Can't overlook the first priorty, the law of the land and they let him walk for the price of a good vacation. Is this job security or negligance? I'm not a lawyer but surely his next victim will have one.
    I guess we will read what the next, the next, the next victim's lawyer thinks.

    How sad that the only thing that is focused on here is this guys work place and the fact he was supposedly selling MaryJane to some losers in prison!! What about the child??? The dog is also a victim, although I doubt that it will go on to repeat this repulsive behavior. The child, however, has to now be put through therapy, etc., because of this sick son of a beecatcher!! I believe that he ought to be taken to the next Tea Party and hung publicly. Then people could actually complain about something notable such as the total lack of control we have as a government to regulate and dispose of pigs like him!

    I didn't know that Booty Juice was that old.

    A story about a man who likes children and dogs can't be all bad. sorry WC
    By: ThomasPaine on 4/16/09
    Too bad, this site was beginning to become a cool forum again. Booty and their ilk just reduce it to their image. Not worth the energy to get past their collective BS.

    Is this some kind of media perversion diversion. I had to miss the tea party because of job duties but I really wish I could have supported the event especially after seeing, hearing and reading just how much media wants to squelch or discredit people who assemble and speak for themselves. Example: Hundreds gathered in this county. The truth was Thousands….
    By: Booty_Juice on 4/16/09
    Nothing surprising here. The only difference between this mong and the rest of his north county neighbors is that he evidently had a job.

    Atrashcabama is beyond all help. It is corrupt, tribal, violent, immoral, addicted, AIDS ridden and lazy. Leave the place alone and in two generations it would vanish, which would suit mankind very well indeed.

    Their mindset is simply too primitive and feudal to be adjusted to the 21st Century.
    If you really want to help Atrashcadero, give them luggage and bus tokens so they can vacate in an orderly fashion instead of carrying a few pots on their heads down to the local market to sit under a tree all day, staring longingly at their nieces.

    Or alternatively, simply let them do what they do best. Rob, drink, snort, piss up the wall, shag anything that moves, puke in bed, set fire to the house and annihilate each other.

    It is common knowledge that our psychopath cousins oop nort are bottom of the league in everything except wife beating, heroin taking, moaning, and stabbing each other.

    I think the entire population of Atrashcadero should be moved to Afghanistan.
    Once the place is full of hairy palmed dwarves, all on the sick, it should be handed over to the Taliban to do with as they wish – target practice, medical experiments, that sort of thing.

    Mind you, the addition to the bleak windswept landscape of thousands of job shy worthless scroungers with an unhealthy interest in dog bothering and close male harmonies may be enough to deter ANY invasion. By anybody.

    I love it, let me know when and where "The Booty Group" will convene to discuss current events. Might senseless speculation as to the respectability of this new form of journalism be labeled "Juice"?
    By: InTheKnow on 4/15/09
    The guy falsely accused as the sleeves bandit’s family claims he has gotten away with ripping off family for years, not that he has a record, Karma they said for what he has gotten away from in the past – drug use and ripping off family is what they said.

    New guy is charged with trafficking in both a controlled substance and marijuana over state lines, and then selling to prisoners – huge crimes – seven felony counts equals $25,000 bail?, while knowing this man is a danger to children and pets.

    Now families in Atascadero need not only to worry about their children’s whereabouts, they need to protect their pets from animal sex fiends. Isn’t justice here to protect everyone, even our furried friends.

    Bail set at $25,000.00? Did I miss something? Maybe others involved?
    By: mccdave on 4/15/09
    The defendant was able to argue for reduced bail so he would be available to do some tea-bagging today at Sunken Gardens.

    You wonder what first tipped off the CDC to his smuggling operation. You have to assume other prison personnel knew about this. I met Detective Hanson once and wouldn't have confidence in her.

    Truthbeknown: Yeah, this kind of thing never happens in non-godless places like, say, the Catholic Church.

    most likely this guy is toast and a pervert, however, the county district attorneys office has set a precedent that they shoot first, then ask questions later……..I wouldn't trust them with any charge as far as i could throw those DA's, who work for the county because can't make it on their own.
    By: hotdog on 4/15/09
    TBK-godless? I only wish it was. The whole planet is covered with religious groups that cause way more trouble in the name of their 'god' than if there were no such thing. What does it tell you when someone throws a bomb into a crowded marketplace, yelling "god is great"? Or their 'Christian' counterparts who cheat on their taxes, wives and followers- and promote assassination as a foreign policy tool? Some churches do good work, way more just promote their own power base and luxuries for the 'elite'.
    Over in our 'valley', where the denizens of Bakersfield and Fresno dwell-a common way to fool and cheat their fellow man many spice every conversation with 'I'm a church goer' and 'bless you'. It's a sign to those who know to grab their wallet and hold it tight.
    Godless? I wish. Then we would have to depend on ourselves, and take responsibility for our actions without hiding behind a bible, Koran or other silly set of rules no one follows unless they can make a buck off it.
    By: Truthbeknown on 4/15/09
    Very sad story, but not surprising. This is indicative behavior of a Godless society.
    By: Webelieve on 4/15/09
    Well, maybe this guy doesn't have a crime history, as opposed to the bank robber story. He ought to be put away once the other charges are brought up for the pervert stuff. He should be spending some serious time with guys he was supplying at the CMC.
    By: CitizenCane on 4/15/09
    This all seems a little strange.

    The bail was only set at 25,000.00 and he is already back on the street?

    The guy in a previous story is mistakingly arrested and rearrested as the sleeves robber until the real sleeves robber is caught up north. The DA drops the robber charges but during the investigation a charge of breaking s into a vacant family members house and stealing family photos is charged. This guys bail is 50,000.00 and he is still in jail.

    What the heck is wrong with this pictur?

    Maybe we need a new DA?
    By: Webelieve on 4/15/09
    I find it hard to believe that this is the first crime that this guy has ever committed, or that a background investigation was not done on him prior to letting him have this type of contact with CMC prisoner. "Our investigation is still ongoing"….well fine. I'm glad for that, and it is ironic that it all lead to the pervert's porn/beastiality incidents.
    By: hotdog on 4/15/09
    I can't wait to see what Booty will say about this!
