Trial For Ex-Detective Brian Sawicki
updated: Nov 03, 2011, 5:39 PM

By Edhat Subscriber

I was wondering when the trial for ex-Detective Brian Sawicki was going to finally take place. I know it had gotten postponed this summer, but I thought it was supposed to start on Oct 25 in Santa Maria. I mean the whole thing happened back in 2009!

For those of you that don't remember, Sawicki was a police detective for the SBPD until he was caught touching himself in front of two teenage girls at Refugio beach.

I think the news not long ago said something about early next year. Not sure, but I do believe it has been postponed again.

He was arrested in August 2009 for flashing two teenage girls. Under indictment for flashing he opens a gym?

Ask the DA (do we have a DA)?

Intresting how our DA treats sex crimes commited by those in lawenforcement. Like the two prison guards that raped the female inmate on the prison bus and slapped their wrists..Strike a blow for the business of Justice..

I'm not sure you could say he flashed the girls; from the description of the event, he thought he was alone--though he was out in view where anyone could see him--and they saw him.

I've been flashed. In Central Park, NYC, by a guy in a tree. Quite intentional: "hey honey, look over here!" Trenchcoat and everything. Intensely gross, but did not ruin my visit to the Guggenheim, which was having a free day.

Sawicki didn't open the gym, he bought it when it was for sale after one of the original partners died.

You guys should give him a chance. He's actually a really nice guy. It amazes me how people persecute someone just because of heresay. So what if the guy maybe touched himself, people have hormones. It's not like he was standing in front of someone's window and doing whatever he is being deemed as doing. Give him a break, don't be so harsh.

887: DON'T BE SO HARSH??? On sex offenders who victimize our children? You have obviously never had one of your children victimized by a sick pervert. It has ruined our lives for many years. Yet we learned of it only when my child was in their 30's and started remembering. So, don't be so harsh? Give him a break? Who's ever given my child a break from the nightmare of a lifetime.

He wacks his pud in public two little girls walk up on him..He chases them trying to catch them and someone says don't be so harsh? There must be alot of child molesters in Santa Barbara and the law is soft on them I'm glad I don't have any kids for these maggots to victimize. My life was messed up from scum too..

Is there a two way mirror in this gym ?

I'd be checking the locker rooms and bathrooms for web cams if I was a customer!

Who doesn't have the self control to "take care of business" in a more private setting? Just the fact that he could not contain himself while out in public screams LOSER to me. Whether or not he touched himself intentionally for the benefit of those young girls remains to be seen, but if he did, I hope they throw the book at him....creep.

I think that now he is holding his own.
