Boy, 16, convicted as an adult for girl's rape in Woodland

From Bill Lindelof:

A 16-year-old boy tried has been convicted of raping a 14-year-old girl earlier this year in Woodland.

Alejandro Alfonso Sanchez was tried as an adult and convicted by a Yolo Superior Court jury of rape, kidnap and assault.

A news release from the Yolo County District Attorney's Office states that Sanchez will be sentenced Oct. 30 by Judge Thomas L. Warriner. He could be sentenced to up to 15 years in state prison.

Prosecutors said Sanchez knew the victim and threatened to rape her on Jan. 24. When she did not cooperate, he choked her.

Testimony revealed that the girl remembers waking up naked in the back seat of Sanchez's ca. She then put her clothes on and jumped from the moving vehicle, later being helped by a passer-by who took her home.

She suffered several injuries, including a broken ankle.
