Man Convicted For Forcing Sex On 16-Year-Old Stepdaughter

RANCHO CUCAMONGA (AP) — A Southern California man is facing up to 80 years in prison for forcing sex on his teenage stepdaughter several times a week for more than a year.

A San Bernardino County jury deliberated about four hours on Wednesday before finding 40-year-old Juan Trujillo Barajas guilty on 24 felony counts, including continuous sexual abuse of a child.

The Inland Valley Daily Bulletin says his 16-year-old stepdaughter eventually disclosed the sex attacks to a relative and Barajas was arrested in May 2010.

Prosecutors say the forced intercourse took place at the family home and a Baldwin Park Mexican restaurant where Barajas and the girl worked.

Barajas will be sentenced Sept. 2.
