The San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s Office filed 126 counts against a Nipomo man Friday for allegedly sexually abusing a now 18-year-old girl for the past four years.

The 126 felony charges filed against Robert John Bergner, 51, include one count of child pornography of the victim. In addition, there are two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child, two counts of forcible lewd act on a child, and sodomy of a victim aged 14 to 17, 77 counts of child molestation, 23 counts of unlawful intercourse with a minor under 16 and 23 counts of unlawful intercourse with a minor more than three years younger than the perpetrator.

Bergner, the coach this year of an under 12-year-old girl’s recreation league softball team in the South County, allegedly molested the victim since the time she was 12-years-old through May of this year.

Bergner remains in the San Luis Obispo County Jail with his bail set at $1 million.

      That will not solve the problem, it just does not allow for genital insertion, he could still use foreign objects to molest a child.

      Sex is more mental than anything, so how about we remove his brain so he can’t think about molesting a child?

      Enjoy your time with Lenny Jones you sicko.

    So glad this guy is where he belongs, behind bars.
    These predators can’t be rounded up fast enough, nor can they be held long enough.
    Anyone who violates a child is the lowest of the low.

    I hope this case doesn’t land in Umhoffer’s court, he’ll reduce all the charges to misdemeanors.

      When the punishment fits the crime..it will end.

      Punishment fitting this crime is dismemberment with a pair of pliers and a blowtorch. Unfortunately our constitution forbids this type of justice.

        The rate of recidivism is so high in sexual predators, even after long stints in prison, it will be a miracle if he can make a change that will last.

          If we take the pliers and blowtorch to him as “Achilles” suggested, he WILL be changed forever.
