Child Molester Sentenced To 29 Years In State Prison

A Siskiyou County child molester has been given a lengthy sentence. 36-year-old Edwin Ernesto Alfaro-Lopez of Yreka sexually abused 3 victims, each of them under the age of 14 when the crimes were committed. When the investigation began, only two of the victims agreed to testify but the third victim stepped forward because he continued the abuse. The formal sentencing follows a plea bargain that Alfaro-Lopez agreed to last year for 29 years in state prison, of which he’ll have to serve at least 85%.
