Another girl was molested six times from the age of 4 to 7 between December 2013 and June 2017.
All 25 crimes occurred in various locations in Tulare County.
Myers was found guilty of the following charges: one count of oral copulation of a minor under the age of 10; one count of attempted oral copulation of a minor under the age of 10; four counts of lewd act upon a child under the age of 14; 10 counts of a forcible lewd act upon a child under the age of 14; eight counts of lewd act upon a child age 15; and one count of possessing child pornography.
“The jury also found true the special allegation of substantial sexual conduct and that the crimes were committed against multiple victims,” the district attorney’s office said. “Each count is a felony and 24 of the counts are strike offenses.”
In addition to his sentence, Myers will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
