POMONA (CNS) - A San Bernardino County man was sentenced today to 35 years to life in prison for raping two homeless women and attacking another female transient in Pomona last year. Charlie Nathan Paxton, 25, of Chino Hills, was also ordered to register as a sex offender.
Jurors deliberated about 1 1/2 days in September before finding him guilty of two counts each of forcible rape and assault with intent to commit rape and one count each of kidnapping to commit rape and second-degree robbery. The panel also found true allegations of kidnapping and aggravated kidnapping during a sexual assault, according to Deputy District Attorney Brendan Gibson.
The attacks occurred between September 2017 and November 2017, according to the prosecutor, who said Paxton was captured after one of the victims helped police to identify him.
