A Petaluma man was sentenced Thursday to 22 years in state prison for sexually molesting his niece and two nephews over a seven-year period, according to the Sonoma County District Attorney’s Office. Jean Paul Borowiec, 40, was found guilty in July of eight counts of child sexual abuse, according to District Attorney Jill Ravitch. The victims, now 23, 21 and 18, were living with their grandparents in Petaluma at the time of the incidents, which took place between 1997 and 2004. The nephews told family members about the attacks in 2004, but they were not reported until 2010, when their father, recently released from prison, contacted police. “The sentence handed down today reflects the seriousness of the offenses this predator committed against his own family members,” Ravitch said. “He took advantage of three extremely vulnerable young children who were living with their grandparents because their parents were unable to care for them.” Borowiec was arrested in Westport, Conn. and extradited back to Sonoma County in 2011.

  • Just for advice, Jean Paul Borroweic IS NOT A MOLESTER, HE WAS ACCUSED BY HIS NIECE AND NEPHEWS. My words, I know Jean Paul Borroweic, he used to live in my house, we play video games, Diablo II, and we learned cursive writing as well. -_-, both of them need to stop this accusation, and please. PLEASE release that guy, I was 8, when Jean Paul was there, and he never raped me, never did. Why? He cares about his family, the Cook’s family and himself, I really detest his nephew and niece, they accuse him. So, feel free anyone who is Jean Paul’s friends. I WANT HIM FREE! HE IS NOT A RAPIST, PERIOD.
