PASADENA – A 34-year-old Monrovia man accused of using the Internet to lure teen girls for sex pleaded today, the District Attorney’s Office announced.
Deputy District Attorney Ilean Richard of the Pasadena Branch Office said Gregory Scott Serrano pleaded guilty to 20 counts before Judge Janice Croft. The charges involve three female victims ranging in age from 14 to 17.
Serrano pleaded to five counts of sodomy of a person under 16, four counts of unlawful sexual intercourse, three counts of contact with a minor for sexual offense, three counts of oral copulation of a person under 16, two counts of oral copulation of a person under 18 and one count each of sodomy of a person under 18, meeting a minor for lewd purposes and lewd act upon a child.
The defendant is due to be sentenced on July 6 in Department H of Pasadena Superior Court. Serrano, who has a pending federal case involving child porn and other charges, is expected to be sentenced to 20 years in prison.
Upon initiating communication via the Internet, Serrano would phone and text message his victims and, ultimately, set up sexual encounters at his residence. The defendant told the girls he was between 16 and 19 years old.
