SAN DIEGO — A local emergency medical technician pleaded guilty Wednesday to having unlawful sexual intercourse with a 15-year-old girl he met on a website called meetme.com.

Zachary Stinchcomb, 23, faces probation and up to a year in jail when he is sentenced April 29. A charge of oral copulation on a person under 18 was dismissed.

Stinchcomb pretended to be 17 years old when he met the girl online. The two exchanged text messages and eventually met in person and developed a sexual relationship, according to a search warrant. The warrant says the girl met a boy at her own high school and broke off the relationship with Stinchcomb, making him upset.

On Jan. 22, the victim asked Stinchcomb for a ride to school, but he drove her to another area, where he cut her panties from her body and forced her to have sexual intercourse, according to the warrant, which stated that the defendant was in his EMT uniform when the assault occurred.

A spokesman for Rural/Metro of San Diego, where Stinchcomb worked as an EMT, said the defendant was immediately suspended without pay once the company learned of his arrest.

    If California had the balls to do something, then we would take his and that will be the end of the story.

    • Sick! not the pedophile, the Supreme Court!

      It’s easier to cater to the criminal than it is to do the right thing. Booo hoooo hoooo a pedophile can’t find an easy place to live so the supreme court takes out the safeties protecting the innocent that voters deemed necessary?
