Tip from newspaper led to child porn arrest

The arrest of a Novato Unified School District bus driver and a Cub Scouts den leader began with a tip to police from the Novato Advance newspaper. The Advance says in a story on its Web site that it received an anonymous e-mail tip about Remsen McGinnis Benedict, 52, from "a parent and concerned citizen." The e-mailed tip included a link to a Web site that sex offenders Web site that contained biographical information about Benedict and his photograph. The Web site identified Benedict as a school bus driver with the
Novato school district and a pack leader with the Boy Scouts and it contained postings allegedly by Benedict, also known as "Wolfman," that reveal his preference for boys, Bay City News reported. Novato police said the school district and the Marin Council of the Boy Scouts of America received similar e-mails. Benedict has been arrested and is being held in the Marin County Jail under $500,000 bail, BCN says.

It's not only the Marin educators who Can't Keep Their Pants Up, it's the rest of the whole overly self-absorbed county with its plethora of sexual predators.
