FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Case # 15NF3262
Date: October 26, 2017
WHO: The Orange County District Attorney’s Office (OCDA)
WHAT: Will oppose a motion to continue and request immediate sentencing for defendant Kevin Jonas Rojano-Nieto, who was found guilty by a jury on Dec. 3, 2014, of one felony count of sexual intercourse or sodomy with a child 10 years or younger and one felony count of a lewd act upon a child under 14, for sodomizing a female toddler and making her touch his penis on June 4, 2014.
The OCDA maintains that pursuant to instructions from the Appellate Court and well-settled legal precedents, the trial court only possesses jurisdiction to sentence Rojano-Nieto consistent with the Legislature’s mandated punishment of 25 years to life and requests that the defendant’s motion to further postpone sentencing and delay justice be denied.
