Yeah. A toddler. The drummer, who has also worked with Norah Jones, was convicted of one felony count of oral copulation and sexual penetration of a 3-year-old child during a retrial last March, after the first was considered a mistrial.

The incident took place in Los Angeles in the Laurel Canyon neighborhood, during a Thanksgiving celebration in 2009, and isn't his only known incident of child molestation.

According to Drum magazine, we was charged with a misdemeanor and sentenced to three years probation for the attempted molestation of a 6-year-old at the school he was volunteering at. This incident apparently took place 2 weeks after the Thanksgiving one. Ugh.

McNeal was with the band Cake from 2001-2004, and he has a recording credit on Norah Jones' 2009 hit album The Fall. He's also worked with artists such as Mike Doughty and Brett Dennen.

In addition to his prison sentence, the scumbag will have to register as a sex offender for life. You know, so he can't go volunteering at elementary schools anymore.

Do you think 15 years is enough for sexually assaulting a toddler?
