ONTARIO – An Ontario man faces 13 years behind bars for abusing his wife and stepdaughter during a 2015 incident.

Agustin Jimenez, 32, was convicted on Friday of two counts of False Imprisonment, one count of Criminal Threats, one count of Spousal Battery, one count of Child Abuse, one count of Vandalism and one count of Evading an Officer with Reckless Driving.

According to the prosecutor, Cassandra Helmuth, the incident occurred in November 2015 when Jimenez and his wife were involved in a verbal altercation at their home. “At one point following the argument, the defendant held his wife and 17-year-old stepdaughter hostage in a bedroom,” Helmuth said. “When the daughter tried to escape Jimenez punched her in the face and began choking her.”

The stepdaughter eventually escaped through a bedroom window. Jimenez left the home and his wife located the daughter and the two walked to the home of a friend. The mother and daughter decided to go back to the home to retrieve their belongings.

According to prosecutors, the two borrowed a vehicle from the friend and pulled into the driveway of the home. Suddenly, Jimenez pulled up behind the vehicle and rammed the back of it.  “The defendant then got out of the car, picked up a rock and smashed in two windows of the car,” Helmuth said.

The victims left the home and officers located Jimenez and placed him under arrest. Jimenez is scheduled to return to the Rancho Cucamonga Superior Court for sentencing on February 24, 2017.
