Steven Wing sentenced for substantial sexual conduct with girl between 4 and 6 years old
VISALIA – Convicted child molester Steven Wing will spend the rest of his natural born life, and a few more centuries, for his crimes.
Last Thursday, Nov. 7, superior court judge Juliet Boccone sentenced Wing, 66, to 400 years-to-life in prison. Wing was found guilty on Aug. 16 of four counts of sexual penetration of a child ten years old or younger and eight counts of lewd act upon a child under the age of fourteen. The jury also found true the special allegation of substantial sexual conduct and that Wing was a habitual sexual offender. The jury also found true that Wing has a prior conviction for lewd act upon a child under the age of fourteen from November 1985. Each count is a felony and all are considered strike offenses.
The crimes occurred between Feb. 1, 2015, and July 21, 2017, against a female victim who was between the ages of four and six years old at the time of the sexual assaults. All twelve crimes occurred in various areas within Tulare County.
Wing will also be required to continue to register as a sex offender for the remainder of his life.
The case was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Chelsea Wayt of the Crimes against Children Division and was investigated by Agent Mona Whaley of the Visalia Police Department.
