To drown out his own pain. For Superior Court Judge Pamela L. Iles, that youth's testimony a few months back at the Justice Center in Laguna Niguel was her breaking point. "I was so tired of seeing traumatized children on the witness stand," she explained. "Parents think it's their own fight.

The ingenuity of the oldest child, a 10-year-old girl, who kept notes of their three days with the stranger, led to the arrest Friday of Kevin Kulo, 31, a private security guard at the downtown San Diego County Courthouse, police said.
