SF political consultant Enrique Pearce also faces drunk driving charges

Enrique Pearce, the prominent San Francisco political consultant arrested last month on child-pornography charges, has a history of drunk driving and speeding allegations against him.

Pearce, 41, is charged with six felonies related to the distribution and possession of child pornography. But court documents show that he also has a case pending for two misdemeanor drunk driving counts and a speeding count from November 2013, the Bay Area Reporter reported Friday.

Officers stopped Pearce when he allegedly drove his Porsche at 50 to 60 miles per hour through the intersection of 7th and Townsend streets while his blood alcohol level was over the legal limit, according to the Bay Area Reporter.

Last week, Pearce was ordered to stay away from underage youths and barred from photographing them.

Pearce was arrested in early May after police reportedly determined that he was in possession of images of young and prepubescent children being sexually abused and raped.

On May 13, he pleaded not guilty to the felony counts. He is scheduled to reappear in court Aug. 25.

The drunk-driving and speeding case is pending as of mid-May, according to the Bay Area Reporter.Child PornographyCrimeEnrique PearceSan Francisco Crime
