Local investigators on Wednesday arrested 68-year-old Lafayette resident Kenneth Allen Breslin for Possession of Child Pornography after an investigation and execution of a search warrant allegedly turned up a “significant quantity” of child pornography in the Orinda-based child psychologist’s home.
A spokesperson for the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s office stated in a release that the investigation and subsequent arrest of Dr. Breslin was conducted by members of the Contra Costa Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, a group composed of detectives from the Martinez, Walnut Creek, Moraga, Concord, Pleasant Hill and San Ramon police departments; along with investigators from the Sheriff’s Office, Probation Department, and the District Attorney’s Office.
Investigators searched Dr. Breslin’s home in the 3400 block of Moraga Blvd in Lafayette, allegedly locating pornography involving children on Dr. Breslin’s computers and other storage devices. A subsequent search of his office in Orinda yielded additional files of child pornography, the spokesperson said.
Dr. Breslin was arrested and booked at the Martinez Detention Facility. His bail was initially set at $200,000.
The case is being reviewed by the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office.
Dr. Breslin has been a psychologist for over 30 years and maintains a practice in Orinda called “A Child’s Point of View.”
