Groveland Man Gets Three Year Sentence For Rape Conviction
Sonora, CA — After being convicted by a trial this past August, 34-year-old Gerald Allyn Kraft of Groveland was just sentenced to state prison for a rape charge.
The victim was an 18-year-old homeless woman who Kraft invited to stay at his residence. The District Attorney’s Office reports that the victim made it clear she was not interested in a romantic relationship, and she was sexually assaulted while sleeping on Kraft’s floor.
The victim had text messages from Kraft stating he was sorry for what he did.
There was a delay in sentencing following the August trial because of COVID-related issues and Kraft requesting a retrial. In addition to being sentenced to three years in prison by Judge Kevin Siebert, Kraft will have to register as a sex offender for 20 years.
