Madera County District Attorney Michael R. Keitz announced Wednesday that Victor Yslas, age 32, of Fresno, was convicted on October 16, 2012 of 7 felony counts, including kidnapping, sexual assault and possession of pornographic photographs of a child under the age of 14.
Deputy District Attorney Sally Moreno presented evidence that in 2010, Yslas kidnapped a young girl. He then took his victim to a public restroom located in a Madera park, where he indecently photographed and assaulted her.
Through the efforts of the Madera Police Department, Yslas was apprehended and further harm to the victim was prevented.
Yslas had previously been twice convicted of felony assault with a deadly weapon resulting in great bodily injury, for which he served time in state prison.
Each of Yslas’ prior assault convictions is a strike under California’s Three Strikes and You’re Out law. He will be sentenced on January 3, 2013 in the Madera Superior Court, when he faces a life sentence in state prison for the 7 new felony convictions.
