Sexual Abuse of a Minor Leads to 11 Year Sentence for Pleasantville Man

[1]

A Pleasantville man was sentenced to 11 years in prison Thursday after agreeing to a plea deal on sexual abuse of a minor charges.

Jose Valdez-Rangel was arrested in February of 2017 after an incident occurred in 2016 where he pushed a 16-year-old victim to the ground in a bathroom before taking off his clothes and assaulting her sexually. Valdez-Rangel waived his right to a pre-sentence investigation, and was sentenced to 10 years for the sexual assault and another year for a domestic abuse assault causing injury charge. Valdez-Rangel will serve the 11 years concurrently with a 20 year federal prison sentence incurred from the same incident, where he was charged with sexual exploitation of a minor/production of child pornography.
