Dunnigan man convicted of kidnapping, sex with El Dorado Hills teen

A Yolo County jury has convicted a Dunnigan man of kidnapping and engaging in sex with a 13-year-old El Dorado Hills girl.

Jason Stephen Sigur, 36, was convicted of 41 counts of kidnapping, sex with a child younger than 14, communicating with a minor for the purpose of committing a sex act, and burglary, according to a Yolo County District Attorney's Office news release.

Sigur met the 13-year-old girl on an Internet chat room in August 2010. He immediately began visiting the girl in person at her El Dorado Hills home, sneaking in through a bedroom window while the victim's mother slept in another room, officials said.

On Oct. 14, 2010, Sigur persuaded the victim to leave her home and go to Dunnigan to live with him. The girl's mother called police when she discovered her daughter missing the following morning.

Yolo County sheriff's deputies located the victim at Sigur's trailer in Dunnigan.

Cell phones belonging to the girl and Sigur provided important evidence in the case, officials said. The district attorney's High Tech Computer Forensic Unit conducted the analysis, which allowed the prosecution to present supporting evidence of the relationship between Sigur and the victim.

Sigur is to be sentenced May 1 by Superior Court Judge Stephen L. Mock.
