Homeless Victorville Couple Convicted & Sentenced for Molestation of 5-year-old Son

VICTORVILLE – A homeless Victorville couple was convicted and sentenced Tuesday for molesting their 5-year-old son.

The couple’s 5-year-old son reported the sexual abuse by his biological father and mother, Roy Ling, 35, and Sara May Wilson, 32, in August 2013. The three were homeless and authorities were unable to locate them. In February 2018, the Bernardino County  Homeless Outreach and Proactive Enforcement – HOPE Team located Ling and Wilson in the riverbed area in the City of Victorville. Through investigation, authorities also learned that the couple may have also committed sexual acts on their dogs.

An arrest warrant was issued on February 14, 2018, and the couple was arrested the following day near Cottonwood and E Street in the City of Victorville. Both were booked into jail for Lewd and Lascivious Acts with a Child.  Initially, at an arraignment hearing at the Victorville Superior Court on February 16, 2018, Ling and Wilson denied a single charge of Lewd and Lascivious Acts with a child.

At a hearing on Tuesday, March 20, 2018, Ling changed his plea to no contest and was sentenced to 6 years in prison. He will be required to serve at least 85% of his sentence and was credited 40 days; 34 days time served and 6 days conduct credit. Wilson, also changed her not guilty plea to no contest and was sentenced to 3 years in prison. Wilson is eligible for 50% conduct credit. Wilson was credited for 80 days; 40 days time served and 40 days conduct credit.
