Disgusting OC Child Molester Wins Conviction Reversal

Flores: Hell, yeah! . . . Wait? . . . What?
Flores: Hell, yeah! . . . Wait? . . . What?

Those loud screams of joy you might have heard this week from inside a cell at California State Prison at Lancaster belonged Orange County's Jorge Cruz Adan Flores, a disgusting child molester.

In 2006, Flores sodomized and orally copulated a child under the age of 10.

He denied the charges, but following the work of the Orange County District Attorney's Office a 2009 jury found him guilty of three felony sex crimes.

In 2011, Superior Court Judge M. Marc Kelly sentenced Flores to a term of 40 years to life.

Unhappy, the molester appealed the convictions.

On June 28, a California Court of Appeal based in Santa Ana rejected his arguments that he should have been convicted of less serious crimes.

But justices

William Rylaarsdam

,

Richard Aronson

and

Raymond Ikola

did agree with the child molester's stance that he'd wrongly been convicted of the third, overlapping count: committing continual sexual abuse on a kid.

The court reversed that conviction, which must have delighted Flores until he remembered that Judge Kelly had stayed any punishment on that count.

Upshot: Despite the victory, the 31-year-old man will continue to serve his full 40 years to life prison sentence.
