Local man gets 6 years for child molestation
A Tulare County judge sentenced 48-year-old Ubaldo Aguilar of Porterville to six years in state prison Monday for molesting a child between the ages of 14 and 15 years old.
The Tulare County District Attorney’s Office reports that Aguilar was sentenced for lewd acts with a child and unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor.
On Oct. 23, Aguilar pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor, with the defendant being over the age of 21 and the minor being under the age of 16, and one count of lewd acts upon a child, with a minor victim between the ages of 14 and 15, the DA reports.
In June of 2011, Tulare County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a home where a mother reported that Aguilar had engaged in sexual acts with a minor child on more than one occasion.
The acts occurred when the victim was babysitting, the DA reports.
Aguilar was ordered to pay more than $2,000 in fines, and will be required to register as a sex offender for life.
The case was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Marisa Maclennan and investigated by Deputy Ron Smith of the Tulare County Sheriff’s Department.
