A June 8 sentencing date is set for a man convicted of drugging and raping a 14-year-old girl after bringing her and another teenager to a home to smoke methamphetamine.

William G. Cortez, 50, was found guilty Tuesday of forcible rape, forcible oral copulation and adult using a minor, and is facing 50 years to life in state prison, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

Cortez met the victim and another 14-year-old girl and brought them to a house to smoke methamphetamine on Oct. 28, 2013, according to Deputy District Attorney Michael DeRose.

One of the teens decided to go home, but the other was too intoxicated to leave and Cortez injected her with methamphetamine, then raped her, the prosecutor said.

The girl’s mother learned from the other 14-year-old girl where Cortez had taken her daughter and notified authorities.
