PROSECUTOR: Deputy District Attorney Bruce Chang, Cyber Crimes Unit
Johnathan Nesmon pled no contest to committing a sex act with a child under the age of 10 and lewd and lascivious touching of a child under the age of 14.
On April 10, 2018, a citizen called the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department to report that she saw images of Nesmon sexually abusing a 7-year-old girl on Nesmon’s cell phone. When the Sheriff’s Department contacted the victim, she reported that Nesmon had been sexually assaulting her for several years. Nesmon assaulted the victim at a number of locations, including a toy store parking lot, a store dressing room and a motel. The Sacramento County Sheriff’s High-Tech Crimes and Child Abuse Unit recovered thousands of child pornography digital images on Nesmon’s devices.
Nesmon faces a maximum sentence of 25 years to life in prison. Sentencing is set for January 10, 2019, at 8:30 a.m. in Department 61 before the Honorable Michael Sweet.
