Johnny Guerrero, 41, pleaded no contest last month to two felony counts of lewd acts with a child under 14. In turn, prosecutors dropped charges of sexual penetration of a victim 10 years or younger, aggravated sexual assault of a minor and concealing a camera to record a person’s body or undergarments.

Guerrero has remained in San Luis Obispo County Jail since his Jan. 2016 arrest, and he has reportedly displayed good behavior over that span. Guererro received about two years of credits for time spent in custody, but a San Luis Obispo judge also ordered him to pay more than $27,000 in fines and restitution as part of his sentencing.

On Jan. 20, 2016, after SLO County Sheriff’s deputies tracked him to an Arroyo Grande hotel, Guerrero led authorities on a “slow-speed” chase on Highway 101 from the South County city to San Luis Obispo, where he was arrested without further incident. Deputies found a loaded gun in Guerrero’s car during the arrest.

Guerrero was featured on the sheriff’s Most Wanted Wednesday social media post prior to the chase.

      Child molesters don’t really have a rough time of it in prison anymore, at least not in California. The “Progressives” have felt sorry for the way that these animals are abused in prison, and have developed “SNY” yards (Sensitive Needs Yards) to accommodate rapists and child molesters. It’s still prison, and no picnic. But the left feel that sexual offenders were treated too harshly on the main line, so they no put them all together on special, less violent yards. Your tax dollars at work. I know this because I am a retired CDCR Correctional Officer.
