Sexual Predator Sentenced to 7 Years in Prison

A judge sentenced Angel Antonio Medelez, 28, of Santa Barbara to six years and eight months in prison.

A jury found Medelez guilty of four felonies and one misdemeanor after a four week trial. The sexual assault charges involved two male victims, one 16 years old and the other 19.

Prosecutors said the victims were too intoxicated to consent to, or resist, the sexual assaults by Medelez.

Besides the prison sentence, Medelez must also register as a sex offender for life and pay restitution to his victims.

“Sexual assault and child sexual abuse are uniquely horrific crimes. They can cause lasting emotional and psychological trauma for the victim and their families. The effects are often devastating,” said Prosecuting Deputy District Attorney Chris Horowitz.
