CHURCH LEADER SENTENCED TO 10 YEARS AND EIGHT MONTHS IN PRISON FOR SEXUALLY ASSAULTING AUTISTIC CHILD VICTIM AND PRODUCING CHILD PORNOGRAPHY

SANTA ANA, Calif. –A Huntington Beach church worship leader was sentenced today to 10 years and eight months in state prison for sexually assaulting an autistic boy and producing child pornography. The Court of Appeal, Fourth Appellate District, Division Three (DCA) vacated the conviction of Jeffrey Adam Tracy, 39, and dismissed the conviction of two felony counts of oral copulation of a child 10 years old or younger and two felony counts of lewd acts upon a child under 14. The DCA ruled that the Orange County Superior Court vacate the previous sentence of 36 years to life and ordered the trial court to resentence the defendant. The DCA held that there wasn’t sufficient corroboration to prove the conduct the defendant confessed to on multiple occasions. The victim’s autism made him unable to report the crime.
