Defendant Pleads Guilty To Child Molestation Charges, Could Face Life Sentence



A man who was charged by the Sacramento County District Attorney's office with assaulting two girls over the course several years plead guilty today of the charges.




Today Peter Nicholas pled no contest to two counts of sexual assault of a child 10 years old or under, and admitted to a 2002 prior strike for sexually assaulting a child under 14 years of age. 

Nicholas was a friend of the victims’ family and would often stay at their house on weekends where he sexually assault the two girls who lived in the house whenever he had the opportunity. The assaults occurred over a seven-year period when the victims were between the ages of 3 and 12. 

Neither victim knew the other was also being assaulted. The oldest victim disclosed her abuse to her mother after receiving encouragement from her friend. 

Nicholas faces a maximum sentence of 60 years to life in prison. Sentencing is set for November 17, 2017, at 1:30 p.m. in Sacramento Superior Court, Department 24 before the Judge Shelleyanne Chang.
