Stuart J. Forrest who was the Chief Probation Officer for San Mateo County in Northern California was charged on Thursday with possession of child pornography.

Forrest has been with San Mateo County since 1977 and named chief in April 2009.

The investigation was started in December by the USPS and referred to the California Attorney General’s office.

Under a cloud of suspicion, Forrest retired from his $140,00 a year position. San Mateo County has said if he’s convicted of a “job related felony” he will lose his pension.

On Friday, it was revealed at his arraignment (San Mateo County Courthouse in Redwood City) an outside judge was brought in because Stuart has had a professional relationship with the judges in the county due to his position in the probation department.

Stuart has pled not guilty to all charges.
