 Eduardo Antonio Colocho[KHTS] – A registered, Santa Clarita sex offender was sentenced on Monday after pleading no contest to molestation charges.

Eduardo Antonio Colocho, 36, was sentenced to two years in state prison on Monday, said Jane Robison with the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

Colocho plead not guilty to one count of felony molestation or annoyance of a child under 18 with a prior sex crime conviction on Friday, Nov. 13.

He was arrested on July 13, 2015 at 11:50 a.m. by Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station officials and his bail was set for $170,000, according to arrest records.

Colocho has a prior sex crime conviction in 2006, “sodomy with a victim unconscious of the nature of the act,” according to the Megan’s Law website.

  1. Just looks like justice does not prevail..

  2. Santa Clarita Valley courthouse,is unbelievable, the porn guy gets two days and other perv only gets two years for molestation. 😡😡

  3. Teri Cuadros Teri Cuadros says:

    2 years is all you get for a second offence. Are you serious you get longer for having drug’s on you. Ridiculous something is definitely wrong with the judicial system

  4. This is a perfect example of why most become repeat offenders…

  5. Yeah because 2 years will stop him from doing it again??
    Anyone else think the courts and justice system is a joke??

  6. Should have gotten more

  7. Unbelievable! Only two years for Lester the molester. Our justice system is broken

  8. Neil Arno Neil Arno says:

    I hope he gets his in prison.

  9. These perverts deserve a public whipping! And serious prison time. 2 years is a lite sentence

  10. Jared from Subway got some hard time, and if I’m correct, he only talked about wanting to molest kids. This guy actually does the act and only gets 2 years?? That is a felony isn’t it?? WTH??

    • I can’t remember if he actually did molest. Maybe he did.

    • Chaz Bish Chaz Bish says:

      Under aged sexworkers. 16-17 yr olds I believe.

    • He faced a few charges including a massive amount of kiddy porn.

    • Jared did, and he went to prison. This guy gets 2 days??

    • Paula Carrasco says:

      I agree, Dorothy, this guy should get a much more severe sentence but he doesn’t compare to Jared Fogle. – (taken from the Washington Post)

      Play Video1:26The case against Subway’s Jared Fogle, explained

      Jared Fogle, former spokesman for Subway, was charged in a federal court with paying for sex with minors and possessing child pornography. Here’s a look inside the charges and what investigators say he did. (The Washington Post)
      Jared Fogle, who for years served as the spokesman for the sandwich chain Subway, is facing federal charges that he repeatedly paid to engage in sexually explicit acts with children and that he received and distributed child pornography, according to court documents.

      Fogle, 37, will plead guilty to the charges, his attorney said Wednesday. He will also pay $1.4 million to 14 victims in restitution for counseling, support, treatment, or other assistance related to their victimization.

      According to court documents released Wednesday by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Indianapolis, Fogle used Web sites to solicit commercial sex and traveled to engage in sexual acts with minors from 2007 until June 2015.

      The documents also allege that Fogle received images and videos of nude children from Russell Taylor, who served as executive director of Fogle’s childhood obesity charity. Taylor also distributed pornographic images of children who were as young as six to Fogle, the documents allege.

      They are all monsters, some just have the means and opportunity to be more prolific.

    • Oh, no he did– and BIG TIME! Hullo, Thailand trips????!!!!

    • Oh yeah, forgot about those trips.

  11. This pervert is obviously not able to be fixed. There is NEVER enough penalty for these perverted creeps . They ruin lives, prey on the innocent, disgusting. Physical, surgical castration, immediately. He is unfit for society. Gove hom what he has earned. A cell with NO protection and he can be a servant for the bigger prisoners .

  12. Dianne Swink Dianne Swink says:

    Travesty of justice , makes me sick , when ! when !! will the court system do more to protect children from future assaults by locking them away , jeez bank robbers get heavy sentences an it’s only money

  13. These monsters should never ever get a second chance…Hugs

  14. Put him on main line he will get what he deserves there.

  15. Not sure why I even commented without actually reading but this guy IS in fact a repeat offender! He was previously arrested in 2006 and now again.

  16. Time for Porky to get poked.

  17. 2 years?! What a slap in the face to the victim!!

  18. Hopefully a victims loved one will meet him in a dark alley one cold night.

  19. Bring back the electric chair l! Or if not that then hopefully word gets out in the prison he goes to and the guys in there will take care of him.

  20. John Lazar John Lazar says:

    I’m sure the big boys in prison will love his kind. I hope he gets a bad taste of it every night.
