Power Inn Road rapist
sentenced to 400 years to life

District Attorney Jan Scully announced today that Shane Wilson was sentenced by the Honorable Maryanne Gilliard to the maximum 400 years to life in prison. Wilson was convicted by jury in December on two counts of kidnapping, six counts of rape, seven counts of forcible oral copulation, two counts of forcible digital penetration and one count of forcible sodomy.

In October 2008, Wilson picked-up victim Y while she sat at a bus stop on Stockton Blvd. Wilson drove the victim to a dark area near Power Inn Road and attacked her, physically beating her. He shackled her arms and feet with handcuffs, put a bag over her head, duct taped her hands and feet and placed her in the trunk of his car. He then drove her to his house, where he sexually assaulted her.

In February 2009, Wilson picked-up victim M while she was walking to the store. He again, drove the victim to an area off Power Inn Road, attacked her, handcuffed her, taped her hands, feet, mouth and eyes and placed her in a large metal tool box in the back of his truck. He then drove M to his house, where he sexually assaulted her.

In March 2009, Sacramento police officers were investigating the assault on M and discovered the similarities between the two cases. Shane Wilson had been identified as the suspect in victim M’s assault. On further investigation into victim Y’s assault, crucial DNA evidence was discovered in Wilson’s car and home. The DNA was analyzed by the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Crime Lab and a match was made to both victims Y and M.

Deputy District Attorney Keith Hill states, “A serial rapist will never harm another woman in our community thanks to the hard work and determination of Sacramento police detectives, along with the strength and tenacity of the victims who reported the crimes and saw the case through to today’s sentencing.”
