Ex Cake Drummer Pete McNeal Charged With Child Sex Abuse


Pete McNeal, who is the former drummer for the band Cake, is facing child sex abuse charges.

The musician is accused of oral copulation/sexual penetration of a child under the age of 10 and was released after posting $250,000 bail.

His arraignment has been set for February 10, 2012.

Pete, 45, is known for his work with Cake from 2001-2004 and also worked with Norah Jones on her 2009 album “The Fall”.

Sadly, this isn’t the first arrest for molestation. He was busted in 2009 for a separate case where he attempted to molest another young girl.

McNeal has a young son and daughter of his own and police believe there may be other victims out there that have not come forward.

LAPD spokesman Cleon Joseph stated, “When a person goes to that level… chances are they may have done it again. We don’t know, but we have to put it out there just in case.”
