• 3rd arrest on child porn charges

    Jason Wright was re-arrested at his mother’s home on Sinex Friday morning, Sep. 2 on federal felony charges of child exploitation, the third time he has been booked on charges involving child pornography.

    He was arrested for the first time in May, 2011 following a months-long investigation involving the FBI and local authorities, and was released on $100,000 bond under the condition that he not access a computer or the Internet except at his workplace, his parents’ insurance agency in Pacific Grove. Monitoring software was installed there, but Wright apparently no longer works at the insurance agency.

    He had also been ordered not to be alone with any minors, including his 11 year-old stepdaughter, child of his wife, Rampueng Kaeorawang.

    But on Aug. 29 he was arrested again, along with his wife, and searches were made of his parents’ computer at their home on Sinex. He was released from Monterey County Jail yesterday after posting bail, but police say this time it was a no-bail warrant. He was taken to San Jose. PGPD Cdr. John Nyunt confirms that Wright’s wife was re-arrested as well.

    Investigators believe the child porn images were produced in another country. Kaeorawang is a Thai national and Wright’s brother, a registered sex offender, is currently in Thailand.
