Arroyo Grande police arrested a Grover Beach man last month for trying to solicit sex from a 15-year-old girl he met online, who was actually an undercover cop, Commander Shawn Cosgrove said. [Cal Coast Times]

After chatting with an undercover officer who he believed to be a 15-year-old girl, Brandon Robert Johnson drove to Arroyo Grande to have sex with the teen. Officers then arrested Johnson on charges of soliciting a minor for sex.

Following his July arrest for solicitation, officers discovered Johnson was chatting online about what he wanted to do sexually to his 8-month-old daughter and a 10-year-old child who lives in the home, police said. Officers then searched Johnson’s home and discovered child porn on his computer.

On Aug. 18, officers arrested Brandon on child pornography charges. He has since been released on bail.

I used to date this guy, and we ended up having a son. Not only did he abuse my other children behind my back, but he also attacked me several times while I was pregnant. I got the he** out of there with my son and made sure he or my other kids would never have to endure his danger. Tried to warn his 40 year old wife with a daughter from a previous relationship, but see what’s happened? So scary. I hope he DOES do jail time. He’s a repeat offender.

Hasn’t he ever watched dateline?

You watch, some crazy judge will award this POS joint custody.

He should not be allowed anywhere near that baby or ANY other children.

Please tell us all about the crazy SLO County judge who would do this?

Far more likely would be our LE arresting another idiot.

“He has since been released on bail.” WTF? This dude is a danger to children.

Welcome to the Jerry Brown’s new California, catch and release for all.

Jerry Brown was trained by the Jesuits, go figure. The affiliation of two black robe societies, the priests and the judges.

What no condemnation on the criminal?

If he had a Hispanic name, the orange headed cheerleaders would be all over this.

Instead it’s bad Jerry, no comment on the idiotic Brandon.
