Daughter of Goleta Mayor Arrested

An altercation resulting in nearly a dozen charges, including assault, sexual battery, kidnapping, stalking, and robbery, ended in the arrest on Tuesday of Kirsten Perotte, the 38-year-old daughter of Goleta Mayor Paula Perotte. According to the Sheriff’s Office, Perotte had assaulted two people at a residence in Goleta, one of whom she’d been dating. Lieutenant Robert Minter stated the sensitivity of the domestic violence charge and applicable law precluded more information being given; Perotte is held on $500,000 bail. Mayor Perotte stated, “Like a lot of other families, we have challenges, and we’ve been trying to work through it. We love her very much, and we hope, because this is a family matter, that you’ll respect our privacy at this time.”
