Man arrested for sexual assault awaits extradition to California

Sexual impulses are a natural phenomenon in human beings that come in many different varieties. However, sometimes a person's sexual impulses become out of control and do not conform to the norms of society. This can result in serious legal problems for an individual in California. One man is now encountering this type of predicament after being arrested for sexual assault.

The suspect is accused of drugging at least four women and then sexually assaulting them. Detectives from California were able to find the suspect with assistance from an out-of-state state police department. The 20-year-old man had been living at a residence outside of California. The man also has a California address listed as his residence.

The man is now being held in a jail in the area where he had been staying. He is currently awaiting extradition to a jurisdiction in California. Authorities believe the man used various aliases on social media sites to lure women into meeting with him. They claim that the man would then offer the alleged victims beverages laced with a sedative.

Although the evidence against the man seems strong, the suspect has yet to tell his side of the story. Despite the evidence that the authorities may have, the defendant is presumed innocent until proved guilty in a court of law in California. This means he will have a chance to defend himself against the accusations while also challenging the prosecution's side of the story. With a strong legal defense, the defendant may be able to have the sexual assault charges dropped or at least minimize the penalties.
