OCDA SEEKS THE PUBLIC’S HELP IN APPREHENDING FUGITIVE SOFTBALL COACH FACING 10 YEARS FOLLOWING CONVICTION FOR MOLESTING
12-YEAR-OLD TEAM PLAYER
Quintana pleaded guilty to the court on April 18, 2008 to four felony counts of lewd acts on a child under 14 and one felony count of oral copulation of a person under 14 with a sentencing enhancement allegation for substantial sexual conduct with a child. Over the objection of the People, the defendant’s sentencing was continued by the Honorable Roger Robbins to May 19, 2008 and Quintana was released on $100,000 bail. Quintana is facing 10 years in state prison.
The People objected on the record to the delayed sentencing stating that the defendant was a flight risk looking at a lengthy prison sentence. The People also stated on the record that Quintana is a suicide risk based on his statements contained in court documents and has been seen in possession of a firearm. The people requested that the defendant immediately be taken into custody. As a result of the new case charging him with violating a protective order, Quintana’s bail was revoked and a no-bail warrant was issued at the request of the People.
