A former Chico State Student charged with a number of felonies gave his plea in court. 28-year-old Daniel Martinez entered pleas of no contest in a Butte County courtroom Thursday to 14 felony counts. Those charges include sexual assault, child pornography, burglary, extortion, and fraud.
Authorities in 2014 learned that Martinez allegedly hacked CSUC student accounts of some of his former roommates. He even reportedly hacked some of their parent's accounts. He is accused of opening false credit card accounts using the victim's names. Authorities found selfies of Martinez allegedly urinating into the food and drinks of his former roommates. He's also accused of sexually assaulting female victims while they were unconscious from either alcohol or drugs in Butte, Glenn, Tehama, Alameda, and San Francisco Counties. According to a press release from the Butte County D-A's Office, the other counties have given Butte County the authority to prosecute the sex crimes that happened in their jurisdictions.
District Attorney Mike Ramsey says the case demonstrated vile and disgusting behavior along with repeated violations of trust.
If convicted he could receive a maximum of 32 years in state prison.
