Shane Wilson (left) of Pollock Pines has received the maximum sentence of 400 years to life in prison after being convicted of two counts of kidnapping, six counts of rape and 10 other sexual assault-related charges.
Wilson, 38, was convicted in December by a Sacramento Superior Court jury and was sentenced today by Judge Maryanne Gilliard.
In October 2008, Wilson picked up his first victim while she sat at a bus stop on Stockton Boulevard. He drove her to a dark area near Power Inn Road and beat 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, according to a Sacramento County District Attorney's Office news release.
In February, Wilson picked up his second victim as she was walking to a store. Again, he drove his 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 her to his house where he sexually assaulted her.
After the attacks, the victims then were driven back to Stockton Boulevard and released
In March 2009, Sacramento police officers investigating the assault on the second victim discovered the similarities between the two cases, and DNA evidence tied Wilson to both victims.
