Child molester convicted in case involving Filipina girls

A former Orange County teacher convicted in a sex tourism case will spend a long time in jail.

A federal judge has sentenced former school teacher Robert Ruben Ornelas to 190 years in prison, for molesting girls as young as eight years old in the Philippines.

Prosecutors say he traveled to the Philippines three times, between 2006 and 2012.

They say Ornelas sexually assaulted two girls as young as 8 years old, videotaped the abuse, and brought it back to the US.

Last November, a jury found the 66-year-old man guilty of seven felony charges — which included sexual conduct in a foreign place, producing and possessing child pornography.
