Peter Nicholas pled no contest to two counts of sexual assault of a child 10 years old or under, and admitted to a 2003 prior strike for sexually assaulting a child under 14 years of age.

The assaults occurred over a seven-year period when the victims were between the ages of 3 and 12. Neither victim knew the other was also being assaulted. The oldest victim disclosed her abuse to her mother after receiving encouragement from her friend.
Nicholas faces a maximum sentence of 60 years to life in prison. Sentencing is set for November 17, 2017, at 1:30 p.m. in Department 24 before the Honorable Shelleyanne Chang.
