Solana Beach School Kidnapping Suspect Bails Out of Jail

Jack Doshay, 22, is facing charges of lewd acts on a child with and without force, kidnapping, false imprisonment with violence and child abuse

Ed. Note: At a later date, a San Diego judge dismissed two charges connected to the September 2010 incident.

A man accused of attempting to lure and kidnap young girls at Solana Beach-area schools on two separate occasions has bailed out of jail, his attorney confirmed Friday.

Jack Doshay, 22, is now longer in custody after posting bail, attorney Paul Pfingst told NBC 7. Pfingst would not say exactly when Doshay was released from custody, and would not comment on his client’s whereabouts.

Doshay’s bail was set at $5 million Wednesday during his latest hearing in a Vista courtroom.
He faces 10 charges stemming from two incidents - the one at Skyline Elementary in March 2015 and a previous allegation at Solana Santa Fe Elementary in September 2010. The charges include lewd acts on a child with and without force, kidnapping, false imprisonment with violence and child abuse.

Doshay is accused of trying to kidnap a 7-year-old girl from Skyline Elementary School on March 23. Prosecutors allege his DNA was found on duct tape wrapped around the girl's head before the alleged kidnapper attempted to carry her off. Her screams and kicks caught the attention of staff nearby and the girl managed to escape, unharmed.

This week, prosecutors revealed Doshay is also the suspect in a second allegation from September 2010 involving a five-year-old victim near the baseball fields at SFF Elementary.

In this incident, a five-year-old girl was lured behind a shed after school to see a white bunny. The child was ordered to get on her hands and knees and, as the child was looking for the bunny, the suspect grabbed her by the hips.

Deputy DA Ryan Saunders said the attacker in this incident unzipped the girl's pants and tried to remove them. The girl was able to scream, kick the man in the privates and escape, Saunders said.
Doshay, a member of an affluent family, is considered a flight risk because his parents own a private jet. Glenn and Karen Doshay live in Fairbanks Ranch. The defendant's father is a minority stake owner of the San Diego Padres.

He is being represented by prominent criminal defense attorney Pfingst.

At Wednesday’s hearing, Pfingst argued the Skyline Elementary School victim was not removed from school grounds and was not touched sexually. He also said the victim in the 2010 alleged incident has all but identified another perpetrator, not his client.

Prosecutors argued for $25 million in bail. However, the judge approved $5 million bail, an increase from the previous $2.5 million, under the condition Doshay wears a monitoring ankle bracelet and seeks treatment at a mental health facility. It is unknown if Doshay went straight to treatment following his latest release from custody.

In both incidents, Doshay’s maximum exposure is 50 years to life.
