According to LAist.com, Peter Ivan McNeal, 46, was arrested in January 2012 on charges stemming from a incident in November 2009. While at a Laurel Canyon home for Thanksgiving, McNeal molested a three-year-old girl who played a game with McNeal during the festivities.
As previously reported, testimony from the trial from the victim's mother indicated the child asked her parents: "Why did that man want to put his penis in my mouth?" The child also indicated it was McNeal who she had played the game with. Later that evening, when the child was taking a bath, her mother asked her to show her what transpired with McNeal with the girl holding a Thermos bottle to her crotch. The child then acted out what McNeal did to her. Two years later the daughter brought up the incident again which led to her parents -- who wanted to be sure about the allegations -- filing a claim in Massachusetts.
Despite a mistrial last April the case was re-tried. McNeal was previously convicted on a misdemeanor charge of molestation with a six-year-old girl two weeks after the 2009 Thanksgiving incident while McNeal volunteered at a Los Angeles school. He received a sentence of three years' probation.
McNeal was convicted on one felony count of oral copulation and sexual penetration of a child under the age of 10. He was taken into custody and held without bail according to sheriff's jail records.
