Burglar Gets Six Years After Breaking Into Home And Downloading Pornography

A 22-year-old burglar has pleaded guilty and been sentenced to more than six years in prison after he broke into the house of three female students and used a laptop to download pornography and commit a sex act.

He also helped himself to refreshments while he was there, but that's obviously much less serious than the stuff he did with the laptop.

Jonathan Jose Ruiz broke into the house in the city of Orange in California before downloading the lewd material onto one of the three college students' laptops and leaving semen on it.

He accepted a plea deal offered by Orange County Superior Court Judge Gary Pohlson, who then sentenced him to six years and eight months imprisonment.

According to the court records, Ruiz has been given credit for 511 days of his sentence and pleaded guilty to felony counts of burglary and vandalism.

He was actually arrested on the evening of 4 October 2018, when police said he broke into the home, sifted through the underwear belonging to the residents, and left semen on the computer that he'd then used to download the pornography.

Sergeant Phil McMullin, of Orange Police Department, said that Ruiz also helped himself to milk and cookies from inside the home.

Sergeant McMullin added that the police had been able to track Ruiz down quicker than they would normally have been able to after they used a new method to identify him.

Obviously, having the evidence that they discovered on the laptop was useful to them, as well.

Upon his arrest, it was reported that Ruiz was also in possession of two pairs of underwear belonging to the college students living in the house, as well as a number of other items from the home.

The reason they were able to track him down using his DNA was because it was already on file since Ruiz was convicted of vandalising the toilets at El Modena High School in Orange back in 2017, according to the court records.

On 23 October 2017, Ruiz had pleaded guilty to counts of misdemeanour vandalism and possession of graffiti devices.

For that, he was sentenced to 30 days in prison, as well as being made to perform 200 hours of community service, during which time he was specifically told to remove graffiti.
