A man pleaded guilty and was immediately sentenced to 15 years in prison Wednesday for sexually assaulting a girl in Stanton to whom he is related.

Jose Lucatero, 39, pleaded guilty to two counts of forcible lewd acts on a child and a count of lewd or lascivious acts with a minor younger than 14, all felonies. As part of the plea deal, two counts of sexual intercourse with a child 10 or younger were dismissed.

The defendant’s father, Eduardo Arguera, pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting the girl in January 2019 and was sentenced to 12 years in prison.
