Defendant Convicted of Sexually Assaulting 17 Year Old

DATE:  September 22, 2016

CASE:  Randy Klippenstein (Case #15F06223)

PROSECUTOR:  Deputy District Attorney Kevin Jones, Adult Sexual Assault Prosecution Unit

Randy Klippenstein was convicted by a jury of two counts of rape by force, two counts of digital penetration by force, four counts of oral copulation by force, and three counts of sexual misconduct.

In August 2013, Klippenstein began making sexual comments about the appearance of a 17-year-old female.  Soon after, Klippenstein sexually assaulted the victim and continued the sexual assaults for the next year and a half.   The victim told Klippenstein  “no” and tried pushing him away in an attempt to prevent the assaults, but she was unsuccessful.   Throughout this time, Klippenstein threatened to kill the victim or lock her away in a basement if she ever told anyone about the abuse. 

Klippenstein faces a maximum potential sentence of 66 years in prison.  Sentencing is set for October 21, 2016, at 8:30 a.m. in Department 39 before the Honorable James Arguelles.
