A California driving instructor and registered sex offender was arrested for molesting a teen student during two driving lessons, local police said.
A 17-year-old girl reported on March 12 that 56-year-old Tom Lam had sexually assaulted her. He was arrested at his home in the city of Montclair two days later, and booked for sexually assaulting a minor, police said. The girl’s parents had paid Lam for six driving lessons with their daughter. While nothing happened during the first four, Lam violated the teen during the last two, police said. He was released on $140,000 bond and is due back in Pomona Court on April 8.
