22 Year Old Convicted of Multiple Child Sexual Assault Charges

DATE:  December 18, 2015

CASE:  Brandon Amador

PROSECUTOR:  Deputy District Attorney Maria Wilson, Special Assault & Child Abuse Unit

Twenty-two-year-old Brandon Amador was convicted by jury on seven counts of child sexual assault charges. 

On October 19, 2014, the 6-year-old female victim went to her next-door neighbor’s house to look for her Frisbee in their backyard.  Amador answered the door and helped her look for the Frisbee.  When they didn’t find it, Amador took her into the house telling her the Frisbee might be in one of the bedrooms.  Amador then sexually assaulted her.  The victim was able to escape when Amador left the room to stop his dog from barking. 

A search warrant of Amador’s house revealed a duffle bag full of the victim’s swimsuits, her underwear, a photo of the victim in her swimsuit, and child pornography on a computer with files using the victim’s name.

Amador faces a sentence of 70 years to life in state prison.  Sentencing is set for February 5, 2016, at 9:00 a.m. in Department 10 before the Honorable Eugene Balonon.
