Santa Barbara Man Gets 145 Year Prison Sentence For Child Molestation

Posted on Thursday, October 17, 2013 6:23am

A Santa Barbara man who detectives say admitted molesting a young girl as payback for his molestation as a child has been sentenced to 145 years in prison.

Jose Vazquez Prestegui was sentenced this week for his conviction on nine sexual assault charges involving two young girls, including his stepdaughter.

Prosecutors say the 40 year old man repeatedly sexually assaulted his stepdaughter over a four year period.

After he was arrested, detectives say Prestegui told them that he had molested one of his victims as payback for him being sexually assaulted as a child.

He received the maximum sentence, and will spend the rest of his life behind bars.
