A probationer who peered into San Jacinto homes, possibly to prey on women and girls, was convicted of misdemeanor charges.
After deliberating only a few hours, a Riverside jury Friday found 46-year-old Ramon Rojas guilty of three counts of peeping. The verdict came following a day-and-a-half of testimony.
Riverside County Superior Court Judge Thomas Glasser scheduled sentencing for Monday morning.
Rojas is being held without bail at the Robert Presley Detention Center in Riverside.
According to sheriff’s Sgt. Robert Duckett, a resident in the 300 block of Hazeldell Avenue called the sheriff’s department about 5:30 a.m. on April 27 to complain about a peeping tom prowling around houses.
Deputies cruised the area and spotted Rojas allegedly looking through the window of a property, at which point he was taken into custody without incident, Duckett said.
According to court records, Rojas has a prior misdemeanor conviction for peeping tom activity that occurred in 2014.
