Pedroia Arrest

Detectives arrested 30 year old Woodland resident, Brett Philip Pedroia on a probable cause warrant drafted by the Woodland Police Department and issued by the Yolo County Superior Court for two counts of oral copulation and lewd acts with a child under the age of fourteen, all felonies. Pedroia was arrested after Woodland police Detectives conducted an investigation into the allegations of the victim who had just recently reported the abuse to one of his parents, who in turn contacted authorities. The incidents occurred approximately four years ago however they were just recently disclosed by the victim. Pedroia was arrested without incident and was booked into the Yolo County Jail with bail set at fifty thousand dollars.

I have no current information regarding Pedroia’s court schedule or custody status, for that information I must defer to the Yolo County Sheriff’s Office. The arrest of Pedroia and charges for which he was booked are a matter of public record as are all arrests made by law enforcement agencies.

The Woodland Police Department like most if not all law enforcement agencies does not routinely distribute press releases on every arrest made, however that information is available through public records and upon request in accordance with the California Public Records Act.
