SANTA ANA - A man was sentenced today to 25 years to life in state prison and mandatory lifetime sex offender registration for sexually assaulting two boys, ages 9 to 11, and possessing graphic amateur and commercial child pornography featuring young boys. Oscar Manuel Vaquera, 39, Anaheim, was found guilty by a jury June 19, 2014, of two felony counts of lewd acts on a child under 14, two felony counts of possession of child pornography, and one felony count of distributing child pornography with sentencing enhancement allegations for lewd acts against more than one victim and substantial sexual conduct with a child.

At the time of the crimes, Vaquera lived in a bedroom in an Anaheim house. Other people, to whom the defendant was not related, also lived in other bedrooms in the home. Vaquera drilled a hole from his closet into the bathroom and secretly photographed and recorded young boys as they used the restroom and showered.

On one occasion between 2007 and 2008, Vaquera sexually assaulted 11-year-old John Doe #1 while the victim stayed overnight in the defendant’s home while visiting a family member. The defendant touched John Doe #1’s penis while the victim was sleeping. Vaquera recorded the sexual assault. This case went unreported at the time.

On one occasion between 2011 and 2012, Vaquera sexually assaulted John Doe #2 when the victim was between 9 and 11 years old. The victim is not related to the defendant. The defendant touched the victim’s penis while the victim was awake and video-recorded the sexual assault. This case also went unreported.

In 2011, the Anaheim Police Department (APD) began investigating a case of possession of child pornography after tracing a download of commercial child pornography to the defendant’s home.

On March 1, 2012, APD searched the defendant’s home related to the child pornography investigation. The defendant was in possession of videos and photographs of graphic child pornography on his computer. He possessed both commercial and amateur child pornography images featuring young boys. The defendant was arrested at the scene.

APD discovered the sexual assaults against John Doe #1 and John Doe #2 in the course of the investigation.

Deputy District Attorney Jess Rodriguez of the Sexual Assault Unit prosecuted this case.

  1. I hear you on the guitar aecpst. We live in a world of instant gratification and it takes time and discipline to overcome our fears of starting something new. For me personally finishing my MS MFT was a launching pad into many new adventures. I am doing my first sprint triathlon in a few weeks and I have been patiently picking up the guitar everyday. Thanks for your words on your blog, just came across via church crunch. Look forward to reading.
