Ismael Gonzalez-Rivas is scheduled to be sentenced on the morning of September 10 and faces multiple life sentences. Prosecutors said Gonzalez-Rivas had multiple victims. Eighteen of the lewd acts counts were with children under 14, while the remaining three involved a child aged 14 or 15. Gonzalez-Rivas began sexually assaulting one of the victims in 1999 when the child was only 6, the district attorney said Friday. That continued until 2002 when the child was 9. In 2005, Gonzalez-Rivas began sexually assaulting a second victim when they were 7 years old. That abuse went on for eight years. The district attorney said Gonzalez-Rivas often showed the second victim child pornography while abusing the child. In 2018, when they were adults, both of the victims reported the abuse.

2 Men Arrested After Catalytic Converter Theft In Yuba City

YUBA CITY (CBS13) — A pair of suspected catalytic converter thieves were arrested after a traffic stop in Yuba City early Friday morning. The Sutter County Sheriff’s Office says deputies responded to Glidden Lane after someone reported seeing a suspicious car parked in an orchard. Deputies soon spotted a car slowly leaving the area. That car was then pulled over near the intersection of Highway 20 and Walton Avenue. Deputies reported seeing tools commonly used in catalytic converter thefts in plain view. Further, deputies say surveillance video also linked the two people who were in the car – 28-year-old Cody Lee Durso and 35-year-old Jake Daniel Sutton – to a recent catalytic converter theft. Deputies later found a catalytic converter in the suspects’ trunk. Both Durso and Sutton were arrested and are now facing charges of theft, criminal conspiracy, vandalism, and possession of burglary tools.
