Man convicted of assaulting women in Rancho Cordova

A man accused of a series of sexual assaults in Rancho Cordova has been found guilty following a jury trial.

Jordan Hudson, 30, was convicted Monday of assault to commit forcible rape, two counts of assault to commit forcible oral copulation, and committing a lewd and lascivious act on a 15-year-old child with the defendant being at least 10 years older than the victim, according to a Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office news release.

On Feb. 3, 2014, a woman was walking in Rancho Cordova when Hudson attacked her and tried to rape her and force her to perform a sex act on him. The woman fought back and Hudson fled.

On Feb. 20, 2014, Hudson attacked an 18-year-old girl as she walked home from her high school and tried to force her to perform a sex act on him. She, too, fought back and Hudson fled.

Later the same day, Hudson grabbed a 15-year-old girl’s buttock as she was walking home. The girl pushed him away, but Hudson followed her into her apartment complex. He left when the girl’s sister yelled at him to leave, authorities said.

Hudson was previously convicted of battery for a similar incident in 2011, according to the District Attorney’s Office. He is to be sentenced Dec. 13 by Sacramento Superior Court Judge Laurel White.
