Defendant Convicted of Multiple Child Molestation Charges, Rape 

DATE:  October 18, 2016

CASE:   Steven Ramos (Case # 13F05434)

PROSECUTOR:  Deputy District Attorney Jeff Harry

Steven Ramos was convicted by a jury of 22 counts of child molestation charges, forcible rape, and attempted forcible rape.

In the mid-90s, Ramos began molesting two girls when they were 5 and 6 years old.  In 1997, the victims disclosed the sexual abuse to El Dorado County law enforcement and charges were filed against Ramos.  Due to outside pressure, both victims recanted their disclosures to law enforcement nearly a year after initially disclosing.  Charges were then dropped against Ramos. 

Ramos began abusing both victims again and continued to do so until the victims were 16 years old. In 2012, when the victims were then in their early 20s, they reported to law enforcement the years of continued sexual abuse at the hands of Ramos.  Their motivation to report was to prevent Ramos from sexually assaulting other potential victims. 

Ramos faces a maximum potential sentence of 55 years, 4 months in prison.  Sentencing is set for November 18, 2016, at 10:30 a.m. in Department 20 before the Honorable Michael Sweet.
