RANCHO CUCAMONGA – A Big Bear City man who sexually assaulted a woman in Rancho Cucamonga and two women in Victorville while posing as a police officer was convicted today.
San Bernardino County District Attorney’s officials said that William Hernandez, 53, was found guilty by a jury, convicting him of two counts of False Imprisonment by Violence, and one count of Sodomy by Use of Force. In addition to the conviction, multiple allegations were found true.
In February 2016 Hernandez identified himself as a police officer to the female victim who he threatened with a handgun. He then sexually assaulted the woman in a Rancho Cucamonga motel. The next assault was in Victorville when Hernandez again claimed to be a police officer to another victim. He threatened her with a handgun and sexually assaulted her also.
“Afterwards, the second victim’s friend called her and she answered the phone,” San Bernardino County District Attorney’s officials said. “Hernandez pointed a gun at her and demanded that she tell her friend to come over. Once she arrived, Hernandez threatened her with a gun and sexually assaulted her.”
Hernandez is set to appear back in court on August 22nd, where he will face 188 years to life in prison.
