A 62-year-old Redwood City man was found guilty Thursday on 24 of 28 felony counts related to the molestation, sodomy, and attempted molestation of four children, according to the district attorney’s office. Eusebio Valladares faces a maximum of 255 years to life in prison for the crimes committed over a three-year period against four minors, who were between the ages of 9 and 11, according to the district attorney’s office.
Valladares rented a room from the parents of two of the victims who are sisters, although he also attacked two of the girls’ friends,
according to the charges. According to the district attorney’s office, Valladares kissed, orally copulated and sodomized the victims when he was alone with them after they were home from school. The case was reported when one of the girls’ friends alerted her mother to the molestation.
A jury found Valladares guilty of 16 counts of child molestation, one count of sexual penetration of a child, and seven counts of attempted child molestation. The jury deadlocked on four additional counts of child molestation, which were dismissed after a motion from the prosecution to do so was granted. A pre-sentence report and sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 13, 2012.
Valladares faces a minimum sentence of 15 years to life in prison. He remains in custody without bail.
