Mendocino Coast Man Found Guilty of Raping Three Women Will Spend 53 Years to Life in State Prison


The following is a press release issued by the Mendocino County District Attorney’s Office:

To recap, defendant Anthony William Oakley, age 30, formerly of Albion, was previously found guilty by jury verdicts on November 4th of felony assault with intent to commit rape on Jane Doe #1; forcible spousal rape, a felony, on Jane Doe #2; forcible rape, a felony, on Jane Doe #3; a separate forcible rape on Jane Doe #3; criminal threats, a felony, on Jane Doe #2; and criminal threats, a felony, on Jane Doe #3.

The jury also found true in November a special sentencing enhancement alleging Oakley committed forcible sex crimes against more than one victim.

Oakley was returned to Department A Thursday morning, Jan.12th, to hear what sentence would be imposed on him for his violent crime spree.

As expected, the outcome was not good news for the defendant.

After hearing from the prosecutor, two of the victims, the defense attorney, and the probation office representative, Mendocino County Superior Court Judge Keith Faulder sentenced Oakley to the maximum sentence allowed by law — 53 years to Life in the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

The prosecutor who worked with the victims and law enforcement to achieve positive outcomes at trial and at today’s sentencing hearing was Assistant DA Dale P. Trigg.

The law enforcement agencies that diligently pursued, gathered, and documented the evidence needed to ultimately convict the defendant were the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office and the District Attorney’s own Bureau of Investigations.
