A man wanted on child pornography charges in Massachusetts, went before a Bakersfield judge Monday.
Christopher Goebel was arrested in Bakersfield in December after U.S. Marshals and Bakersfield police found him at the La Quinta Inn on Merle Haggard Drive and arrested him on Coffee Road.
He was sentenced in January on local drug charges, but Monday, Goebel was in court for an identity hearing. That’s where the judge must determine if Goebel is, in fact, the man who’s really wanted in Massachusetts.
Goebel is due back in court on July 18.
