The man accused of groping two young girls in a San Bruno Target in 2012 was sentenced Tuesday to five years in state prison, San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.

Glenn Albrecht, 51, a former UPS delivery driver, had pleaded no contest to two felony counts of child molestation and one felony count of possession of child pornography.

On Aug. 26, 2012, Albrecht was wearing a T-shirt that said “Rub Me For Luck” when he groped a 6-year-old girl who had wandered away from her family in Target, prosecutors said. The girl told her father about the incident and he struck Albrecht.

Albrecht also inappropriately touched an 11-year-old girl in the same store later that day.

He was detained by security and later arrested. A search of his home revealed a life-size doll of a female child and child pornography.

In April, Albrecht pleaded no contest to the charges on the condition of no more than five years in prison. On Tuesday, he was denied probation and sentenced to five years in state prison with credit for 24 days served.

Albrecht will also have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.Bay Area NewsCrimeCrime & CourtsGlenn AlbrechtSan BrunoTarget
