3 convicted of rape, kidnapping of University of Pacific student receive lengthy sentences

Three defendants, Deonte DeShaun Turner, Dayvonte Otis Brown, and Gilbert Pail Rizo, who were convicted for their role in the sexual assault and kidnapping of a 20-year old University of Pacific student were sentenced on Tuesday at the San Joaquin County Superior Court. 

Turner was sentenced to 172 years to life plus an additional determinate term of 24 years; Brown was sentenced to 107 years to life plus an additional determinate term of 5 years 8 months; Rizo was sentenced to 132 years to plus an additional determinate term of 10 years and 8 months.

The three were convicted in February of kidnapping the female victim on June 2, 2017 at approximately 10:30 p.m. After the defendants kidnapped the victim, they drove her around San Joaquin and Stanislaus Counties while sexually assaulting her.
Three separate juries were convened to hear the case simultaneously but all deliberated separately. This is usually done when evidence may only be introduced against one defendant and not others.
Because Turner, Brown, and Rizo were all under the age of 25 when they committed these crimes, under the Youthful Offender Law (Penal Code section 3051), all three will be eligible for parole in 25 years in spite of the sentences that were handed down today.
