Orange County Man May be Sentenced to Life in Prison for Child Molestation

Posted By Attorney Robert M. Bernstein || 16-Aug-2012

A man who allegedly followed a 13-year-old girl and her 7-year-old sister into a park bathroom and fondled one of them has been charged with multiple counts of committing lewd acts on a child.

Frank Zsemlye allegedly pulled the 13-year-old girl into a stall and covered her mouth as he groped various parts of her body over her clothes. The victim managed to scream and Zsemlye attempted to flee. Bystanders chased him down, called 911 and flagged a police car. Zsemlye was arrested near the park by officers from the Anaheim Police Department.

Zsemlye has been charged with one count of lewd acts on a child under 14, one count of Forcible Lewd Acts on a Child under 14 and one count of Assault on a Minor with the Intent to Commit Lewd Acts on a Child under 14, with a sentencing enhancement allegation for Child Molestation committed in the commission of a Burglary. If convicted, Zsemlye could face from 15 years to a possible life in state prison.

If you, or someone you know has been charged with lewd acts on a child, forcible lewd acts on a child, child molestation, statutory rape, or any other type of sex crime, it is important to contact an experienced Los Angeles criminal defense lawyer who can aggressively fight for your rights.
