A registered high-risk sex offender was sentenced to two years in prison Thursday for falsely imprisoning two of his mental health monitors in a Santa Rosa motel in April. Jonathan Michael Hoppner, 24, was involved in an altercation with the victims who were monitoring his release as a high-risk sex offender on parole in Sonoma County.
The altercation occurred at America’s Best Value Inn on Santa Rosa Avenue on April 27, according to prosecutors. Hoppner had been incarcerated for annoying or molesting a child under age 18 and sexual battery, and his past victims included girls and women between 15 and 50.
Hoppner initially was located to Petaluma after his release from prison on March 1, 2016. Petaluma police objected to his presence in Petaluma and notified the public of his release. Court records show his sexual offenses date back to 2013. A misdemeanor count of battery related to the motel incident was dismissed in Sonoma County Superior Court Thursday.
