Ventura County Man Will Spend The Rest Of Life In Prison For Child Molestation

A Ventura County man will spend the rest of his life behind bars after being convicted of molesting four little girls over a decade long period. Henry Mata of Fillmore received a 310 years to life sentence for the string of crimes between 2004 and 2014.

The 67 year old man was convicted of more than a dozen molestation charges.

During his trial in April, two additional victims testified Mata had molested them in the 1980's. He couldn't be charged with those crimes, because they were outside of the statute of limitations. Prosecutors say all of the victims are related to Mata.
