A man who tried to sexually assault a woman who was 93 years old at the time has been sentenced to 18 years in state prison, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced.

Ted Noriega (dob 3/30/72) pleaded no contest yesterday to one felony count each of assault with intent to commit rape and kidnapping.

Deputy District Attorney Pamela Revel said Noriega was immediately sentenced and ordered to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

On July 6, 2017, Noriega walked past the victim who was sitting on a chair outside of her home on the 9900 block of Woodley Avenue in North Hills, the prosecutor said. According to evidence presented at the preliminary hearing, the defendant grabbed the woman by the shoulders and pushed her through the front door of her house into her kitchen, held her up against a counter and started to unzip his pants

The victim called out for help and her 73-year-old daughter came into the kitchen, causing the defendant to flee. A neighbor who recognized Noriega as someone who lived nearby followed him to his location on another day and called police, the prosecutor added.

Case PA089162 was investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department, Devonshire Station.
