SALINAS — 25-year-old Christopher Longoria of Salinas has been sentenced to seven years in state prison for not honoring his legal requirement to register as a sex offender within five working days of his birthday. He was sentenced on August 16, 2016, by Monterey County Superior Court Judge Carrie Panetta.
Longoria was previously convicted of assault with intent to commit rape after an incident in Central Park. He had been released from prison in April 2014 and reported to his parole officer the next day, at which point a GPS tracking device was placed on his ankle due to his classification as a high-risk sex offender.
Within a month, Longoria cut the ankle monitor off and absconded from parole. He was at large until police made contact with him in August of this year. He was initially arrested for being in possession of a 10-inch blade and methamphetamine, but a print check revealed his status as a wanted parolee and an out-of-compliance sex offender.
