A 75-year-old man has been sentenced to 330 years to life in prison for molesting several children, the Tulare County District Attorney’s Office said Wednesday.
Alex Lopez of Visalia committed lewd acts on four girls and a boy over a nearly 16-year period ending in May 2009. All victims were 10 or younger.
On Aug. 1, a jury found him guilty of 22 felony counts of lewd acts on a child under 14 involving multiple victims. All but one count involved substantial sexual conduct.
One girl was 9 or 10 when she was sexually assaulted once between 1993 and 1995, the District Attorney’s Office said.
A second girl was 6 and 7 when she was assaulted twice between 1996 and 1998. A third girl was between 4 and 8 when she was assaulted 11 times between 1995 and 2000. A fourth girl was between 4 and 10 when she was sexually assaulted seven times between 2001 and 2008.
In the final case, a boy between 3 and 6 was assaulted once between 2005 and 2009.
