Defendant Sentenced for Multiple Child Molestation Charges, Rape 

DATE:  March 23, 2017

CASE:  Steven Ramos (Case # 13F05434)

PROSECUTOR:  Deputy District Attorney Jeff Harry, Special Assault & Child Abuse Unit

The Honorable Michael Sweet sentenced Steven Ramos to 46 years and 4 months in prison.  On October 17, 2016, a jury convicted Ramos 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.
