Posted by Fay Arfa | Dec 06, 2017 | 0 Comments

A 60-year-old man was sentenced today to 108 years to life in prison for sexually molesting four children over a span of 19 years, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced.

On Nov. 9, a jury found Romelio Corelio Espinoza (dob 9/16/57) guilty of eight felony counts in case KA112725: four counts of oral copulation or sexual penetration with child 10 years old or younger and four counts of lewd act upon a child.

During today's sentencing, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Bruce Marrs also ordered the defendant to register as a lifetime sex offender.

Deputy District Attorney Babette Huley of the Victim Impact Program, who prosecuted the case, said Espinoza sexually abused three girls and one boy between 1997 and 2016.

At the time of the crimes, the ages of the victims ranged from 6 to 10 years old, the prosecutor added.

On June 6, 2016, prosecutors filed a case for arrest warrant and Espinoza was taken into custody, the prosecutor said.

The case was investigated by the Pomona Police Department.
