GREENFIELD — Monterey County Judge Rafael Vazquez sentenced Greenfield resident Juan Pablo Aragon-Herrera, 38, to a total term of 17 years in state prison on Feb. 27.

On Nov. 17, 2023, a Monterey County jury convicted Aragon-Herrera of committing lewd and lascivious acts upon a child under the age of 14, as well as assault with the intent to commit lewd and lascivious acts upon the same child, and child endangerment. 

“These constitute the first criminal convictions for Juan Pablo Aragon-Herrera, and three of the four charges are ‘strikes’ pursuant to California’s Three Strikes Law,” according to the Monterey County District Attorney’s Office. “Aragon-Herrera was also ordered to register as a sexual offender.”

On July 2, 2023, Aragon-Herrera was visiting the residence where Jane Doe and John Doe, both under 14 years of age, were hanging LED lights in a bedroom.

“Aragon-Herrera walked into the room and used a ruse to be able to remove Jane’s pants and place her on a bed when he attempted to continue touching her,” stated the DA’s Office. “John Doe was present and was able to get away and find help.”
