California sexual assault case leads to severe sentence

Our Roseville readers have probably seen previous posts detailing how difficult it can be to defend against sex crimes charges. Facing a sexual assault charge can put a defendant in a tricky position right from the get-go, especially in cases where consent is brought up as an issue, or drugs or alcohol are involved. And some of the most daunting aspects of a sex crimes cases are the potential sentences, which can include substantial prison time and a lifetime of being forced to list oneself as a registered sex offender. Recently, a 62-year-old Sacramento man found out just how perilous facing a sex crimes case can be, when he was sentenced to 200 years-to life after being found guilty of the rape and sexual assault of two women.

According to the reports, this man was accused of perpetrating two separate sex offenses back in April of 2011. In the first incident, the man allegedly invited a homeless woman into his residence, and then assaulted her both physically and sexually. In the second incident, the man was accused of raping and physically assaulting an in-home service worker.

This man was found guilty by jury trial in July. It isn't immediately clear if he will be pursuing an appeal in his case.

Anyone facing a sexual assault case must be sure to get the right facts out on their side of the story. Many of these types of cases can come down to he-said/she-said situations, and in that kind of situation it is best to have your story told in such a w ay that your credibility is bolstered. Finding the right way to do that, however, can be the trickiest part of a defense case.
