Crime

WOODLAND, CA - A 21-year-old West Sacramento man convicted of sexual assaulting and kidnapping two women in May of last year received three consecutive life sentences in a Woodland courtroom Friday.

A Yolo County Superior Court jury last month found Theodore Wooten guilty of multiple violent felony charges. According to the Yolo County District Attorney's Office, Wooten pushed his way in a West Sacramento motel on May 1, 2010, and tried to rape a mentally ill woman who often lived on the streets. The victim was savagely beaten with her scalp partially torn from her skull, according to prosecutors.

In the second attack on May 27, 2010, West Sacramento Police Department officers testified to catching Wooten in the act of trying to sexually assault a woman he was accused of forcing off the street and behind a business.

Yolo County Superior Court Judge Stephen L. Mock handed Wooten a sentence of 56 years and four months to life in state prison. Mock said he could not recall presiding over a more violent sexual assault case.
