From Sandy Louey:
An 18-year-old Woodland man will spend from 18 years to the rest of his life in prison for his violent sexual assault on a young woman.
Yolo County Superior Court Judge Thomas Warriner on Wednesday sentenced Timothy Thompson for the Nov. 26, 2006, attack in which Thompson kidnapped a woman from her Woodland apartment complex and sexually assaulted her, according to a Yolo County District Attorney's Office press release.
In March, a Yolo County jury convicted Thompson on the charges of forcible rape, attempted digital penetration and two counts of forcible oral copulation, the DA's office said. The jury also found he committed the sexual assault during the course of a kidnapping, the DA's office said.
During the trial, the jury heard evidence that Thompson grabbed the victim and took her from her apartment, taking her around the corner of her apartment building where he sexually assaulted her, the DA's office said. He also dragged her to Prairie Park where the sexual assault continued, the DA's office said.
Thompson's sentencing had been delayed so he could file a new trial motion that was denied, the release said.
