Man with prior convictions sentenced for 2013 burglary, assault in Elk Grove

A 35-year-old man has been sentenced to 25 years to life in prison for offenses involving the assault of an Elk Grove woman during a 2013 residential burglary.

A Sacramento County jury in November convicted Giovanni Mabon of first-degree burglary, attempted burglary and assault by force likely to result in great bodily injury. The jury also determined that Mabon had two prior convictions, according to a Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office news release. He was sentenced Friday by Sacramento Superior Court Judge Michael G. Bowman.

On Sept. 12, 2013, Mabon broke into a family’s home in Elk Grove while an 18-year-old woman was home alone. Authorities said Mabon assaulted the woman, causing injury, then fled. He was identified by fingerprint and cell tower evidence.

Authorities said Mabon was convicted of robbery in Alameda County in 2009 and of first-degree burglary in Contra Costa County in 2010.
