A man was sentenced Friday to 75 years to life in prison for sexually assaulting two girls related to his live-in girlfriend in Santa Ana.
Hector Rojas Medina, 47, was convicted in February 2020 of two counts of lewd acts with a minor younger than 14 and two counts of sexual intercourse with a child 10 years or younger, all felonies.
One of the girls was 12 years old and the other was 9, according to court records. One of them told a teacher about the abuse in September 2017.
Medina was living in a converted garage with his girlfriend, who was looking after the victims because their parents sent them to escape gang violence in their community in Mexico, according to court records.
