Roberto Jacobo Reyes, the sick-ass creeper convicted in November of touching sleeping females ages 7 to 22 who he did not know, was sentenced today to 30 years to life in state prison.
His crimes included sexually assaulting two girls, ages 11 and 13.
An undocumented immigrant, who'd already been deported back to Mexico
once after a 2003 burglary conviction, broke into a home through a rear window around 2:30 a.m. on Jan. 11,
2009, and entered the room where a 7-year-old girl was sleeping with her
siblings. The girl was tickled and
her blanket tugged, causing her to awake, kick and scream. Reyes
left through an open window but left fingerprints behind.
July 12 of that same year, a 22-year-old woman sleeping with her
boyfriend in a Santa Ana home had Reyes reach in through a window and
touch her foot at about 5 a.m. She awoke, screamed and called 9-1-1 as Reyes fled.
Then, about 3:50 a.m. on Oct. 25, 2009, Reyes entered the Santa Ana bedroom of a sleeping 19-year-old woman through a
window, waking her by rubbing her thighs and arms until she awoke and
called police as he fled.
It was a sleeping 13-year-old girl's
Santa Ana home that Reyes entered around 1 a.m. on Jan. 24, 2010,
when the side of her body was stroked, causing her to wake and scream.
The creeper left through the backdoor, and the girl's mom called 9-1-1.
around 11 p.m. on Feb. 19, 2010, an 11-year-old girl was sleeping when Reyes broke in through a bedroom window, waking her. The sicko held her
down and covered her mouth as he touched her crotch and chest over her
clothing. She managed to break free by kicking and pushing Reyes away, and
he managed to flee the residence through an open window.
Santa Ana Police Department managed to collect DNA evidence at that
crime scene. On May 7, 2010, the crime lab matched that sample to one
collected as part of Reyes' 2003 burglary conviction, which had resulted
in a four-year prison sentence followed by deportation back to Mexico.
determined Reyes sneaked back into the country and was working at a
local landscaping business. After he was picked up for questioning, he
admitted to touching the females.
Thirty years is nothing, the maximum penalty he faced was 194 years.
