Meet Orange County's Baddest Brother: Brandon Lamar Brown
|Brown: bad brother|
Brown digitally penetrated their vaginas and rectums, forced them to masturbate him and sodomized his youngest sister, according to court records.
In January 2011, a jury agreed with a prosecutor that Brown violated 10 sex crimes and Superior Court Judge Patrick Marion sentenced the pedophile to prison.
This week, a California Court of Appeal based in Santa Ana reviewed the case and gave Brown great news. According to Justice Raymond Ikola, Marion incorrectly applied a new, altered sex crimes statute to the sentencing. The judge should have made several, technical determinations about the defendant's lack of probation eligibility before sending him to prison for a term of 15 years to life.
Upshot: Brown, now 26, will enjoy a bus trip from Wasco State Prison back to Orange County so that he can be re-sentenced in coming months.
California now has a One-Strike Law that can allow government officials to keep certain sex offenders locked up forever after just one conviction.
