THIRD STRIKER SENTENCED TO 480 YEARS TO LIFE FOR SEXUALLY ASSAULTING 13-YEAR-OLD GIRL AFTER GETTING HER HOOKED ON METHAMPHETAMINE
SANTA ANA – A third striker was sentenced today to 480 years to life in state prison for sexually assaulting his nephew’s 13-year-old girlfriend after getting her hooked on methamphetamine. Guillermo Ocampo, 34, Stanton, was convicted by a jury on April 9, 2009, of one felony count of forcible lewd acts on child under 14, five felony counts of lewd acts on a child under 14, one felony count of possession of methamphetamine, one felony count of the aggravated sexual assault of a child, and one felony count of furnishing methamphetamine to a child. The defendant has two prior 1995 strike convictions for assault with a firearm and discharging a firearm from a vehicle.
In 2008, Ocampo had recently been released from prison on a parole violation and moved to Stanton, where he was living with family including a 16-year-old male relative, and the 16-year-old relative’s 13-year-old girlfriend. Beginning in January 2008, the defendant began forcing 13-year-old Jane Doe to orally copulate him under the threat of not allowing her to live in the house if she did not perform sex acts on him.
Between March and May 2008, Ocampo began giving Jane Doe methamphetamine on a regular basis with the intention of getting her addicted. After getting the victim hooked on methamphetamine, the defendant would give Jane Doe drugs in exchange for sex, oral copulation, and digital penetration.
At approximately 7:00 a.m. on May 29, 2008, an officer from the Anaheim Police Department observed Ocampo walking down the street with Jane Doe, who was visibly upset and crying. The officer stopped the defendant and the victim to conduct a welfare check and discovered Ocampo was in possession of two methamphetamine pipes and almost one gram of methamphetamine. Ocampo was arrested and Jane Doe was reunited with her mother.
During the sentencing today, a victim impact letter was read on behalf of Jane Doe, who is currently in a drug rehabilitation center. The victim said that she was afraid of the defendant and feared that if he ever got out of prison he would hurt her, her family, or “another little girl.”
Deputy District Attorney Drew Haughton of the Sexual Assault Unit prosecuted this case.
