Westchester man sentenced to 30 years for multiple sex crimes



WHITE PLAINS – A Purdys man was sentenced to 30 years in state prison for the sexual assaults of two women in Northern Westchester in 2016. 
Ronal Sandoval-Campos, 26, will have to register as a sex offender upon his release from prison. He was found guilty in July on eight counts related to the two sex crime incidents – one in a private home in Mount Kisco and the other near the Purdys Metro-North train station. 
Westchester County Court Judge Susan Cacace conducted the trial.
Sandoval-Campos was also sentenced 30 years of post-release supervision, the maximum allowed under the law after being convicted of several crimes including: burglary as a sexually motivated offense; four counts of attempted rape and two counts of sexual abuse.
On June 3, 2016, at approximately midnight, the first victim, a 42-yer-old woman was at home in Mount Kisco asleep in bed when an unknown male intruder, who turned out to be the defendant, unlawfully entered her home, climbed on top of her, and sexually attacked her. During the struggle with her attacker, she took a baseball hat off his head at which point he fled.
`On August 21, 2016, at approximately 8 a.m., the second victim, a 19-year-old woman, at the Purdys Metro-North train station, walked through the stairwell and platform heading to the parking lot. She was approached by Sandoval-Campos, who later grabbed and restrained her on the ground, proceeded to grope her body attempting to remove her clothing, and exposed himself.  A Good Samaritan in the parking lot responded to the victim’s screams and prevented her rape. Sandoval-Campos ran from the scene dropping an orange baseball cap.
DNA results conducted from each cap recovered from the crime scenes were key evidence establishing Sandoval-Campos as the perpetrator of both events. Sandoval-Campos was arrested on Sept. 9, 2016.
At the sentencing, one victim told of the horrendous impact this crime has had on her life, calling her attacker “the monster that changed my life forever.”
