Case of Interest: Kenneth Anderson

DATE:  August 17, 2015

CASE:  Kenneth Anderson

 PROSECUTOR:  Deputy District Attorney Laura West, Adult Sexual Assault Prosecution Unit

District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert announced that 24-year-old Kenneth Anderson was convicted by jury of five counts of forcible sexual penetration by a foreign object, and one count of unlawfully attempting to dissuade the victim from reporting the crime to law enforcement.  The jury also found true special allegations that Anderson bound and personally inflicted great bodily injury on the victim during the commission of the sexual assault.

On March 25, 2014, Anderson entered a Subway restaurant approximately one hour before the victim was scheduled to open the business.  He reset the alarm so the victim would not know he was inside when she arrived at approximately 6:30 a.m.  Anderson struck the victim in the head, duct taped her mouth, and covered her face with a shirt.  He then proceeded to sexually assault the victim.

Deputy District Attorney Laura West stated, “Based on the incredible bravery of the victim, and the excellent investigative work of the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department, Anderson will now be held accountable for his heinous crimes.”

Anderson faces a maximum potential sentence of 125 years to life in prison.  Sentencing is scheduled for September 11, 2015, at 11:00 a.m. in Department 12 before the Honorable Maryanne Gilliard.
