Saugus Man Pleads No Contest To Raping Pasadena Prostitute

PASADENA (CBS) — A Saugus man pleaded no contest Wednesday to raping a prostitute in 2008.

Pasadena Superior Court Judge Dorothy Shubin immediately sentenced Jason Keith Renaux to eight years in prison following his plea to one count of forcible rape.

Renaux, 31, also was ordered to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life, said Deputy District Attorney Carolina Lugo.

Renaux took the woman into an underground parking structure on Foothill Boulevard in Pasandena, where he raped her on Dec. 27, 2008, according to the prosecutor.

He was also charged in connection with an alleged attack on Nov. 28, 2008, on another prostitute, but that case was dismissed as a result of the plea agreement.

Renaux was arrested on Dec. 30, 2008, and has remained jailed since then without bail.
