SAN FERNANDO – A 26-year-old Santa Clarita man accused of sexually assaulting a child in a shopping mall restroom pleaded no contest today, the District Attorney’s Office announced.
Deputy District Attorney Laura Knight Jackson of the San Fernando Branch Office said Casey Crockett pleaded to one count of lewd act upon a child under age 14.
San Fernando Superior Court Judge Hilleri Merritt immediately sentenced Crockett to three years in state prison. Crockett must also register as a sex offender for life.
The charge stems from an incident on Oct. 17, 2011, during which Crockett molested a child in a public restroom stall at the Westfield Valencia Town Center.
The case was investigated by the Special Victims Bureau of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
