Local transient sentenced to jail for making sexual comments to teenage girl

A local transient and sex offender has been sentenced to jail for making lewd comments to an underage pizza shop employee.

Javier Sanchez, 26, was sentenced on Wednesday, December 11 to 120 days in jail for annoying or molesting a child and an additional 90 days for a probation violation, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

Mr. Sanchez was in Blaze Pizza around 12:30 p.m. on November 27 when he said, “What’s up bitch?” and “S**k my d**k bitch” to a 16-year-old girl who worked at the restaurant, Claremont police said. Mr. Sanchez left before police could arrive, but he was arrested on December 5 and charged with the offense. 

Mr. Sanchez had been released from jail just a day before the incident occurred. He was arrested on November 21 for indecent exposure after he was seen masturbating in front of the Claremont Library and sentenced to 90 days in jail on November 25.

He was released a day later due to jail overcrowding, Claremont police said.

Mr. Sanchez was also convicted of sexual battery in February of this year after he grabbed the buttocks of a woman who was walking near College Avenue and Fourth Street. In that case, he was required to register as a sex offender.

He will be released from jail on March 8, 2020, according to Los Angeles County inmate records.
