Allegations of molestation and sexual abuse were brought last week to the attention of the Stockton Police Department. Officers later arrested the suspect, 69-year-old Lonnie Wright.

He was then booked into the Martinez Detention Facility (MDF).

As the alleged crimes occurred in the unincorporated town of Rodeo in Contra Costa County, Detectives from the Office of the Sheriff followed up on the investigation. On Tuesday, September 17, 2019, Detectives presented the case to the Contra Costa D.A.’s Office, which charged Wright for 10 felonies that include sexual intercourse and oral copulation with a child 10 years old or younger and forcible lewd acts upon a child.

Wright, a Rodeo resident, is currently being held at the MDF. His bail is set at $5,500,000.

Wright has reportedly cared for numerous children. Detectives believe there may be additional victims and would like to talk to anyone who was cared for by Wright.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Special Victim’s Unit of the Investigation Division at (925) 313-2625. For any tips, please email: [email protected] or call 866-846-3592 to leave an anonymous voice message.

  1. Wright has reportedly cared for numerous children. That in itself is illegal. He is a registered sex offender.

  2. He IS a registered sex offender, and was released in 1990. Due diligence before you hire someone to take care of children. With the internet, it’s extremely easy to check someone out. It’s FREE.
