FROM THE NEWS-LEDGER — OCT 24, 2012 –
A Yolo County jury last month convicted a 32-year old man for having sex with a 15-year old West Sacramento girl.
According to the office of District Attorney Jeff Reisig, Ronald Vikash Chand of Sacramento lied to the girl about his age and pursued her on Facebook and by text messages.
“On multiple occasions, he picked her up at her high school and engaged in sexual intercourse with her in his car and at a West Sacramento hotel,” said the D.A.’s office.
Deputy D.A. Sara Brate prosecuted the case.
“The defendant manipulated the victim in order to get her to participate in sexual acts with him,” she said in a press release. “This verdict ensures he will not be able to victimize another teenage girl.”
Chand was scheduled to be sentenced by Judge Timothy Fall on Monday (the result was not immediately available). He faced up to four years in state prison.
