Hillsborough man pleads no contest to child sexual annoyance charge

The Hillsborough man accused of soliciting a sexual act from a minor at a Daly City hotel in September pleaded no contest to felony child sexual annoyance on Tuesday, San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said. The plea came on condition of up to one year in County Jail.

Mark Anthony McNeil, 52, offered to perform oral sex on a 15-year-old boy in exchange for money on Sept. 22 at the Geneva Hotel in Daly City, Wagstaffe said.

The boy was sitting on some steps alone at the hotel where he was staying with his family when McNeil called out to him to come see him and offered the boy $50 in exchange for McNeil performing oral sex on him, Wagstaffe said.

The boy refused and told his mother about the incident and she called police.

McNeil was arrested without incident and appeared in court two days later where he entered a not guilty plea. He has a previous misdemeanor conviction for child molestation from 2005, making this most recent offense a felony, Wagstaffe said.

McNeil pleaded no contest to the charge on Tuesday in exchange for no state prison time and up to one year in County Jail, Wagstaffe said. He remains in custody on $50,000 bail and is scheduled to return to court Feb. 3 for a pre-sentence report and imposition of sentence.
