Officials: Some Santas are suspect this holiday season

LAKE COUNTY – Local officials are urging community members to be careful in hiring potential Santas this holiday season.


On Wednesday, District Attorney Jon Hopkins' office issued an advisory about reports of persons who have been convicted of child molestation offering their services as Santa Claus.

 

Before hiring a person or allowing a person to play Santa, local businesses should consider looking on Megan's List to make sure they are not exposing children to potential inappropriate and illegal behavior, Hopkins said.

 

Megan's list can be accessed on the Internet by visiting www.meganslaw.ca.gov/ .
