Man sentenced for series of Rancho Cordova sexual attacks

A man convicted of a series of sexual assaults in Rancho Cordova has been sentenced to state prison.

Jordan Hudson, 30, was convicted Nov. 14 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 Tuesday, Hudson was sentenced to 21 years in prison by Sacramento Superior Court Judge Laurel White.

According to the District Attorney’s Office, on Feb. 3, 2014, a woman was walking in Rancho Cordova when Hudson attacked her and tried to rape her. 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 sexually assault her. 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.
