A Stanford pediatrician was arrested for allegedly sending pornographic pictures to an underage girl and trying to have sex with her, police said Tuesday.
Dr. Dylan O’Connor, 33, who practices at Stanford’s Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital in Palo Alto, California, was blown up during a stab operation in Redwood City last Friday, police said.
Redwood City Police began investigating O’Connor after receiving a lead from another law enforcement agency monitoring illegal picture sharing with children.
