Superior Court Judge Daviann Mitchell imposed the maximum term on Jose de Jesus Santana Aguilar, 52, who had previously been convicted in 1994 for committing a lewd act on another girl, according to Deputy District Attorney Jonathan Hatami.
The latest case involved sexual abuse that began in 2007 when the girl — who lived primarily in Littlerock — was 12 and continued until she was 18. The girl was the daughter of Aguilar’s girlfriend at the time, according to the prosecutor.
Aguilar was convicted Feb. 13 of four counts of sodomy by use of force, three counts of committing a lewd act on a child, two counts each of continuous sexual abuse and forcible oral copulation of a victim over the age of 14 and one count of sexual penetration by a foreign object of a victim over the age of 14.
Before his trial began, Aguilar pleaded no contest to five counts of failing to update his sex offender registration annually and admitted that he had the 1994 conviction, according to the prosecutor.
