A former California Democratic mayor was arrested Saturday morning on six charges, including suspected sex with a child aged 14 or 15.

Sebastopol Police Chief Kevin Kilgore said that on March 30 police received information of alleged sexual assaults committed by former Mayor Robert Jacob in the city between December 2019 and March 2021. 

“Right now that investigation is ongoing for a determination as to the number of victims,” Kilgore said, according to the Press Democrat. 

Jacob, 44, is being held without bail at Sonoma County Main Adult Detention Facility on suspicion of five felonies and a misdemeanor. The charges include sex with a minor and transporting a minor for the purposes of having sex with them, distribution of child pornography and soliciting a minor for lewd purposes.


Jacob was the first marijuana entrepreneur to run a city, according to cannabis advocates.

Alex Rodriguez joining bid to buy Minnesota Timberwolves

Three-time American League MVP Alex Rodriguez and businessman Marc Lore have signed a letter of intent to negotiate with Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor to purchase the NBA franchise, a person with knowledge of the situation told USA TODAY Sports.

The person requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the potential sale of the Timberwolves.

Rodriguez and Lore signed the letter of intent on Saturday and have an exclusive 30-day window to reach an agreement with Taylor.

If a deal is reached, Rodriguez and Lore would be limited partners with Taylor for two-plus years and then Taylor would turn full control of the team over to Rodriguez and Lore as they purchase a controlling stake in the franchise.

Opinion: Hideki Matsuyama plays video games during delay on way to 4-shot Masters lead

AUGUSTA, Ga. – Hideki Matsuyama was 5-under par and two strokes off the lead Saturday when the third round of the Masters was interrupted by an hour-and-18 minute weather delay. Looking for a way to fill the time, he went to his car in the parking lot, pulled out his cell phone and started playing video games.

From now on, all golfers everywhere should wait out a rain delay in their cars, on their cell phones, playing games. That’s because when Masters play resumed, Matsuyama rampaged through his final eight holes in a stunning six-under par, including four birdies and an eagle, to jump into a startling four-shot lead heading into Sunday’s final round.

“Maybe I wouldn’t have believed it,” he said later through an interpreter, and that made all the sense in the world. Who would have? He had just hit his worst shot of the week, he said later – a wayward drive into the trees far right of the 11th fairway – yet when he came back after chilling in his car, he found an opening to the green with his approach and sank a 19-foot birdie putt to go to 6-under par.

Oracle co-founder Larry Ellison just expanded his impressive $1 billion property portfolio by dropping $80 million on an oceanfront compound in North Palm Beach.

Ellison bought the six-acre Florida estate from hedge-fund manager Gabe Hoffman, the founder of Accipiter Capital Management, above the $79.5 million asking price. The compound features more than 520 feet of ocean frontage in the affluent Seminole Landing neighborhood, a gated community with 24-hour security, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The home itself is a Tuscan-style property, clocking in at 15,514-square-feet, with seven bedrooms, a wine room and a theater. The grounds also have a tennis court and space for a helicopter to land.

Ellison, who snapped up Lake Tahoe’s defunct Cal Neva Lodge and Casino in 2019 for $35.8 million, also owns multiple houses in Newport, Rhode Island, 98 percent of the Hawaiian island of Lanaii, a large chunk of the shoreline and properties along Carbon Beach in California, homes in San Francisco and a massive, Japanese-inspired estate in Woodside, California.
