This week, Dexter Tagudin Villanueva was convicted of six felony counts after he illegally entered into the home of a woman who was home alone and sexually assaulted the woman at knife point. Jurors found Villanueva guilty of burglary, assault with intent to commit a sexual offense, sexual assault, making a criminal threat, and several penalty enhancements.  He now faces over 100 years in prison for the crimes he was convicted of.

Sexual assault or battery is the non- consensual touching of the intimate part of another for sexual arousal, gratification of abuse. Villanueva assaulted the female victim likely for all three reasons. He also committed the sexual assault after committing another felony, burglary. Villanueva will now face prison time, fines, probation/parole and he will have to register as a sex offender. There are many defenses to sexual assault and battery crimes including consent, insufficient evidence, or false allegations.
