Up to life in prison for Truckee child molester
TRUCKEE, Calif. (AP) — A 42-year-old California man convicted of multiple counts of child molestation in Truckee has been sentenced to 52 years to life in prison.
The Sierra Sun reported Thursday that Judge Robert Tamietti heard testimony from the victim before sentencing Jeremy William Dedeker this week in Nevada County Superior Court.
A jury in Truckee convicted Dedeker in March of two counts of lewd act upon a child and one count each of sex/sodomy with a child under 10, oral copulation with a child under 10 and sodomy of a person under 14 with 10 years’ difference.
Deputy District Attorney Jesse Wilson says the sentence was the harshest penalty allowed and was “justly handed down.”
