Sonoma County serial sex predator sentenced to 90 years in prison – CBS San Francisco


SANTA ROSA (CBS SF) – A man from Sonoma County, who was convicted of 11 counts of drugging and sexually assaulting three women, including a 75-year-old woman with dementia in 2019, has been sentenced Wednesday to a maximum prison sentence of 90 years live.

Sonoma County Superior Court Judge Shelly Averill sentenced Tirso Dejesus Guzman after moving courtroom statements from two of his victims and the daughter of an elderly victim. He was convicted of assault by a jury on October 25.

“This predator has lost his freedom by committing these terrible crimes,” District Attorney Jill Ravitch said. “We hope his sentence will bring some comfort to the victims.”

On June 2, 2019, Guzman met his first victim, June Doe. That evening, after a casual dinner at her house, Guzman surreptitiously drugged June with methamphetamine. Drugs made her unable to withstand multiple sexual assaults from Guzman for several hours that night.

The jury found Guzman guilty of four counts of sexual assault.

The following night, June 3, 2019, Guzman ran into his second victim, Joan Doe, as she was resting in her car around midnight. She was intoxicated by the wine she had drunk earlier that night. She agreed to use drugs with Guzman and snorted something he provided. The drugs made him lose consciousness for an extended period of time.

Guzman took control of her vehicle and drove it through rural areas of West County. She woke up in a field as the accused raped her. Guzman was convicted by a jury of four counts of drugs, rape and kidnapping of Jane Doe.

Around September 2, 2019, Guzman befriended 75-year-old Jane Doe in the senior citizen apartment where she lives. Jane Doe took pity on the accused and let him sleep at her home for two nights. Jane Doe suffers from severe dementia and was unable to fend off Guzman’s sexual assault. The jury found Guzman guilty of two counts of sexual assault against senior Jane Doe.

June Doe, Joan Doe and Jane Doe’s son and daughter attended the sentencing hearing.

June Doe spoke “from the bottom of her heart” when she told Averill how Guzman raped her body and mind when he drugged and sexually assaulted her. Joan Doe expressed her pain in trying to deal with the trauma of the rape and kidnapping and how it affected her ability to function in her daily activities.
