PRUNEDALE, Calif. - A Prunedale man pleaded guilty to one count of forcible child molestation.
56-year-old Crispin Manuel Vasquez, reportedly sexually molested a girl about six to eight years ago when she was between 10 to 12 years old. The victim told authorities Vasquez was a family friend.
"Vasquez sat next to Jane Doe on the couch, covered both of them with a blanket, grabbed Doe's hand with his own hand, and forced Jane Doe to touch his genitals," the Monterey County District Attorney's Office said.
The girl said she attempted to move her hand away but Vasquez forcefully placed her hand back on his genitals.
Vasquez has four prior convictions for indecent exposure. He will be sentenced on May 22, 2018 to eight years in state prison. The charge Vasquez pled guilty to is a violent felony so he will have to serve 85 percent of his sentence before being released. He will also have to register as a sex offender.
