Man Accused of Downloading Porn, Committing Sex Act During Break-In


SANTA ANA (CNS) - Felony charges were filed today against a 19-year-old probationer charged with breaking into the residence of three female college students in the city of Orange, helping himself to refreshments and using a laptop computer belonging to one of residents to download porn and commit a sex act. 

Jonathan Jose Ruiz of Orange allegedly broke into the home on the evening of Oct. 4, went through the residents' underwear and then left his semen on the computer, after downloading pornographic images and viewing them online, said Sgt. Phil McMullin of the Orange Police Department. 

Ruiz also allegedly helped himself to some milk and cookies, according to McMullin, who said investigators do not believe he knows the victims. 

Police sent the evidence from the computer to a lab, and prosecutors used a new method to identify the suspect more quickly than usual and arrest him on Thursday, McMullin said. When he was arrested, he was in possession of two pairs of underwear belonging to the victims, among other items, according to the Orange County District Attorney's Office. 

Ruiz is charged with burglary and vandalism, both felonies, with a sentence-enhancing allegation of committing a crime for his sexual gratification. The defendant's DNA was in the system due to his conviction for vandalizing bathrooms at El Modena High School in Orange with graffiti last year, according to court records. 

He pleaded guilty last Oct. 23 to misdemeanor counts of vandalism and possession of graffiti devices and was sentenced to 30 days in jail and ordered to complete 200 hours of community service -- specifically graffiti removal. 

Ruiz's probation was revoked after he failed to do any of the community service by a May 24 deadline. His probation was reinstated in August and he was given until Feb. 25 to complete the community service.
