Nipomo resident William Martinez Perez (59) has been sentenced by a Judge to serve 130 years-to-life in state prison for the sexual molestation of three children under the age of 14 .


District Attorney Dan Dow announced today that Nipomo resident William Martinez Perez (59) has been sentenced to 130 years-to-life in state prison for the sexual molestation of three children under the age of 14 spanning several years.  The conduct involved three separate child victims and took place between 2001 and 2005, and 2011 and 2016.  

“It was incredibly brave and courageous for these young people to report what was done to them and to testify in court across the room from their abuser," said District Attorney Dan Dow.  “This sentence sends a strong message to predators that if you harm children in our community, you will be punished severely.” 

The sentence was imposed today, November 20, 2019, by the Honorable Jacquelyn Duffy, Judge of the Superior Court. 

The investigation was conducted by the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office and was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Julie Antos.
