A Kern County jury on Thursday convicted a man of rape and other charges against multiple victims who were minors.

Jose Huape Fuentes, 50, faces the possibility of life in prison at his March 6 sentencing. 

The case was investigated by the Kern County Sheriff's Office in January 2018.

Good News! Another abuser locked up & off the streets. At least his victims won't have to worry where he is & if they are safe. They can heal faster knowing he cannot touch them again. Sounds like the Jury did a good job.
