California sex offender could face the longest prison seentence in state history

A California man who was found guilty on Wednesday of sex crimes and child pornography faces a very lengthy prison stint.

In fact, the 1,882 years to life behind bars that Cornelio Jimenez is facing is expected to be the longest in the state’s history.

According to ABC13, Jimenez was convicted on three dozen counts of child porn and sex crimes.

The Fresno resident who is also a registered sex offender allegedly lied to authorities about where he lived for roughly a year.

Cops eventually busted Jimenz after law enforcement officials traced child porn to the address he was residing at.

During his trial, prosecutors said that Jimenez wrote about molesting children in emails. Detectives also reportedly found videos of Jimenez engaging in sexual activities with two girls, who were 4- and 7-years-old.

“There’s this cute little 4-year-old girl that I babysit once a week,” one of Jimenez’s emails stated, according to a prosecutor. “I have hella pictures of her. I have to molest her every chance I get.”

Jurors viewed parts of the videos as well.

Jimenez’s attorney contended that her client’s counts should’ve been considered separately – and that two of the 36 included the same act.

“The easy thing to do is to clump all the counts together,” Angelica Rivera said. “That’s the easy thing. The right thing is to take them separately.”

Before the trial, Jimenez had reportedly been offered a deal of 75 years to life, but he declined to accept it, and he now faces 1,882 years instead.
