◼ Kailan Meserve who was busted for sexual battery, forcible rape, oral copulation and more is Dave Meserve's son - John Chiv/Words Worth
Former Arcata City Council member Dave Meserve was in court this morning. His son is charged with 17 counts including threats to commit crime resultung in death, first degree burglary, forcible oral copulation (several counts), sexual battery, kidnap to commit robbery, penetration by a foreign object and assault with a deadly weapon. A criminal protective order has been served on him.
It's obviously being taken seriously. Very sorry for Dave Meserve and his family.
(By how it gets treated, I am talking about media and commentariat, vs how other cases with high profile parents have been treated vis-a-vis respect. IN case you were wondering.)
