by The Editors on July 23, 2010

Admitted child molester William Wright Harris, 60, of Carlsbad, will be up for a preliminary hearing on August 11, 2010 in Vista Court for allegedly exposing himself to a 5-year-old girl at Del Mar’s Dog Beach in February 2010, according to a story on 10News.com.

Authorities allege Harris approached the girl in Del Mar the afternoon of Feb. 24. He was arrested six days later at his home in the 2500 block of Unincornio Street in Carlsbad, said San Diego County sheriff’s Detective Chris Davis. . . Investigators identified Harris from video footage the girl’s father took using his iPhone. The father ran after Harris after he was allegedly spotted rubbing his unexposed genitals in front of the girl, the detective said. . . The father’s video depicted Harris making admissions before fleeing in his vehicle, Davis said, adding that the license plate was visible in the footage and helped authorities identify Harris.

Harris could face up to 14 year in prison if convicted. According to 10News he was convicted of child molestation in 1992. Technology wins again.
