A man accused of trying to kidnap a little girl outside a Solana Beach Elementary School is back in custody on a new charge related to another alleged kidnapping victim. He is now being held on $5 million bail.Back in April, we pointed out that DA Bonnie Dumanis' inexplicable decision to charge Doshay with simple, rather than aggravated, kidnapping meant that he could be back on the streets preying on children before he turned 30. Perhaps this second incident will cause prosecutors to take the case more seriously despite Doshay's family's wealth and political connections.
Jack Doshay was scheduled to appear in court Wednesday. The prosecution said there may be changes to the charges he's facing. The preliminary hearing was set to start at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, but the courtroom was switched, causing a delay in the hearing.
The new charges are related to a previously reported 2010 attempted molestation of a 5-year-old at Doshay's former elementary school.
UPDATE: From the Reader:
On September 2, prosecutor Ryan Saunders informed a judge that he was able to get an indictment on ten charges from a grand jury last week, after he brought forward new evidence against Doshay.It's going to be very hard to prove that older case unless they've got some physical evidence they're not telling us about. They'd better bring more serious charges in the 2015 case.
Some of the new charges include lewd acts on a child with force, kidnap with sexual intent, and a charge of multiple victims. The maximum prison time if Doshay is convicted of all current charges is 50 years to life in prison, according to prosecutor Saunders.
