Godwin sentenced

(Holtville man will probably spend the rest of his life in prison)…Jeremy James Godwin was sentenced late last week.

Godwin had been convicted of molesting a child. It was the second time he had been convicted of molesting the same child. A Superior Court Judge sentenced him to 334 years to life in prison for the latest conviction. Godwin will be back in court on December 4 to discuss the issue of credits and restitution. Godwin had originally molested the child in 1998 when she was between 4 and five years of age. The latest charges included 7 counts of sexual abuse of a relative, including aggravated sexual abuse, lewd acts with a child under the age of 14 by force or fear and child molestation.
