A retired San Diego firefighter and former commodore of the Coronado Yacht Club convicted of molesting a 10-year-old neighbor girl was scheduled to be sentenced Thursday.
Thomas Garrett, 73, was convicted of molesting the girl in his home while she lived next door to him in Chula Vista in 2011. He was arrested in February 2012 after the girl's mother came forward to police and accused him of committing lewd acts on her daughter.
Garrett worked for the San Diego Fire Department for 32 years, retiring in 1997 as a battalion chief. He joined the Coronado Yacht Club in 1990 and served as its commodore from 2009 to 2010.
