TULARE COUNTY, California – A Dinuba man is guilty of a dozen felony child molestation charges, says the Tulare County District Attorney’s Office Friday.

Eduardo Rodriguez, 36, is guilty of 12 felony charges of lewd acts upon a child under the age of 14. A jury also found that one of the crimes was committed against several victims.

“Each count is a felony and considered strike offenses,” the DA’s office says.

The crimes happened between October 2016 and October 2017 against a girl who was 11-years-old at the time of the assaults. All twelve crimes occurred in various areas of Tulare County.

Sentencing is planned for Sept. 6, 2019, and he faces 29 years to life in state prison. Rodriguez will also be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
