Sex Offender Sentenced to Life in Prison for Kidnapping Two Women in Pasadena
Published January 29, 2019
A 41-year-old convicted sex offender was sentenced today to life in state prison after a jury found him guilty of kidnapping and attempting to sexually assault two women in Pasadena, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.
Deputy District Attorney Fernanda Barreto said Anthony Seth McDaniel was convicted on Oct. 17, 2018, of two felony counts of kidnapping to commit oral copulation.
As a result of the sentencing, McDaniel will have to serve a minimum of 28 years in prison before being eligible for parole.
On April 30, 2016, McDaniel convinced the two victims to get into his truck by offering them a ride. Once he had them trapped, McDaniel attempted to sexually assault both of them, the prosecutor said.
According to evidence presented at trial, one woman injured herself after jumping out of the defendant’s vehicle while he was on the on-ramp of the 210 Freeway in Pasadena.
The second woman managed to escape after causing a traffic collision on the 110 Freeway in downtown Los Angeles, the prosecutor added. It is believed that McDaniel was taking them to his home in Compton, the prosecutor said.
During the kidnapping, McDaniel, who was convicted in 2008 for assault with intent to commit rape, was wearing an ankle monitor.
Case GA098777 was investigated by the Pasadena Police Department.
