The Honorable Gerrit Wood sentenced Angel Pineda Sanchez to 65 years to life in prison. On September 23, 2021, a jury convicted Sanchez of 10 counts of committing lewd acts with a child under the age of 14 and three counts of oral copulation of a child under 10 years old.
Sanchez began sexually assaulting the victim in 2006 when the victim was 5 years old. The victim disclosed to her mother when she was approximately 8 years old, but law enforcement was not called. The abuse stopped for several years after her first disclosure. The abuse started again in 2014 and continued until 2015, when the victim was 13 years old.
