CASE: Patricia Lane (Case #19FE010439)

PROSECUTOR: Principal Criminal Attorney Nancy Cochrane, Special Assault & Child Abuse Unit

The Honorable Ernest Sawtelle sentenced Patricia Lane to 60 years to life in state prison.  On August 19, 2021, a jury convicted Lane of four counts of child sexual assault and found true a multiple victim enhancement.

Lane sexually assaulted four young boys when they were between the ages of 4 and 11 years old. The victims were adults when they disclosed the sexual abuse.  Their testimony was heart wrenching as were the victim impact statements made at sentencing.

As the Court stated, “The victims are now vindicated.”
