Man Convicted For Attempted Rape of Teen Girl

Sentencing is set for Sept. 1 for a Kern County man found guilty of trying to rape a 16-year-old member of his family.

Deputy District Attorney Arthur Norris said Robert Ramos fed the girl alcohol while she was visiting his house in April 2013, causing her to pass out.

“She went through something that no 16-year-old kid should ever, ever, ever have to go through,” he said.

Norris says Ramos could face up to six years in prison.
