Monrovia Detective Work Leads to 155-Year Sentence for Child Molestation

A case resulting from investigative work by Monrovia Police Department has resulted in a man (no name given) being sentenced to 155 years to life for molesting his stepdaughter.

From the Police Department's Neighborhood Watch Report for September 22-28:

"The suspect was arrested on December 15, 2009, for child molestation. The suspect, a registered sex offender, allegedly, had repeatedly molested his live-in stepdaughter over an 8-year period, beginning when she was only 4 years of age.
"The case was assigned to a detective for further investigation and the District Attorney's review.  During the course of the detective's investigation, he was able to locate a previous victim of the suspect, an ex-girlfriend's daughter.  She, too, was the victim of repeated sexual molestation by the suspect, which began when she was 6 years old.  This case occurred in West Covina in 1995, while the suspect lived with the victim's mother.
"Three felony charges were filed against the suspect for the Monrovia case by the Pasadena Superior Court and a jury trial began on August 10, 2011.  On August 16, 2011, the case went to the jury, and in a short 60 minutes, they returned with a verdict: GUILTY on all counts.  Each of the three counts holds a 25-year-to-life sentence, due to his prior felony sexual assault conviction.
"On September 23, the suspect was sentenced to 155 years to life for molesting his stepdaughter.  This case is a result of detailed investigative work by Monrovia Police Department detectives."
