Child molester sentenced to 330 years to life in prison

webmaster | 04/09/16


For The Madera Tribune

Judge Ernest LiCalsi of Madera Superior Court has sentenced Ronald Wayne Shepherd of Madera to 330 years to life in prison for child abuse, District Attorney David A. Linn announced Friday.

A jury found Shepherd, 51, guilty of nine counts of sexual assault against a child on Feb. 9.

A court trial immediately following the jury trial resulted in the court finding true a special allegation that Shepherd had two prior strikes, Linn said. The defense filed a motion to strike a prior violent conviction in Shepherd’s criminal history. But the court denied the motion, stating Shepherd was the exact type of defendant that brought about the “three strikes” law, and refused to dismiss one or both prior strikes, which were for robbery.

“I appreciate the hard work of Deputy District Attorney Traci Wise, Madera Sheriff’s Detective John Grayson, and the untiring support of the victim by Victim Services at Community Action Partnership, Madera County,” Linn said. “Without their investigative efforts and support, the successful prosecution of these heinous crimes would not have been possible.”
