Monrovia man sentenced in molestation case

PASADENA — A judge sentenced a Monrovia man who molested teenage girls after meeting them through the Internet to 17 years in state prison last week, authorities said.
Gregory Scott Serrano, 34, received the sentence from Pasadena Superior Court Judge Janice Croft Thursday after pleading guilty May 28 to 20 felony counts of child molestation involving three girls ranging in age from 14 to 17, Los Angeles County District Attorney’s officials said.
Serrano was arrested in March of last year after a 15-year-old girl reported to her parents that Serrano had molested her, authorities said.
While the sentencing concludes Serrano’s trial in the Los Angeles County judicial system, he still faces 23 federal charges including using the Internet to entice minors, producing and possessing child pornography and destroying evidence, United Stated Attorney Joey Blanch said. The federal case involves 10 victims.
Serrano faces the possibility of life in prison if convicted on the federal charges, officials said.
