Child Molester Gets 180 Years in Prison

Gustavo Rosas Medina petitioned for a new trial but was denied.

A South San Francisco man was sent back in jail last week, never to leave, after being sentenced for molesting his daughter and step daughter. 

Gustavo Rosas Medina, 50, was arrested in June of 2011 on 11 counts of oral copulation with a minor as well as several other charges after his wife found a note on her iPad from her daughters informing her of ongoing abuse. 

Medina was found guilty on all counts after a 10-day trial last March. The jury deliberated for just two and a half hours before reaching its decision. 

The defense filed a motion for a new trial, but was swiftly rejected late last week. Instead, according to San Mateo County District Attorney's notes, Medina was sentenced to 180 years to life in state prison with 671 days of credit for served time. 

He was also ordered to pay $2,601 to the Victim Compensation and Government Claims Board and to register as a sex offender.

On sentencing day the family, including Gustavo's brothers ex wife came with her new boyfriend who raped one of the victims in this molestation case...asked the judge to speak on behalf of Gustavo. I guess rapists stick with molestors. The judge was quick to put the ex wife and her rapist boyfriend in their place...the only reason why he was still free was because there wasn't any evidence due to the amount of time before it was reported. They quickly left after that ashamed I'm sure...Thank you to the judge. What nerve people have, supporting a child molestor. Disgusting is the only word for Gustavo and all his family who knew it was happening and didn't do anything to stop it. Thank god the children are away from those sick and very disturbed people.
