San Pedro Dog Molester Pleads Guilty, Sentenced to Four Years in Prison

The San Pedro man caught on security surveillance video sexually assaulting a neighbor’s dog was sentenced to four years in state prison on Tuesday.

Christopher Caceres, 22, pleaded guilty to animal cruelty and an unrelated burglary charge, according to a Daily Breeze report.

Caceres was arrested on Nov. 14, 2013, and originally pleaded not guilty to charges of felony animal cruelty, burglary and misdemeanor sexual assault of an animal. He was jailed in lieu of $100,000 bail and could have faced up to nine years in prison had he gone to trial.

The San Pedro Beacon originally broke the story on Nov. 15, 2013, and received surveillance video from the dog’s owner showing Caceres climbing over a backyard wall onto a property on the 1900 block of Summerland Avenue at approximately 2:22 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 10, 2013. The suspect was in the backyard until 4:40 a.m., during which time the video showed the suspect committing multiple lewd acts on the property owner’s beloved dog, an 80 lb. female Akita.

Caceres was also charged with one felony count of first degree burglary after undercover officers caught him burglarizing a trailer at a home on O’ Farrell Street, a block from the dog owner’s home on Summerland.

“This type of case is rather uncommon,” Paul Guthrie, Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney, who prosecutes animal cruelty cases in Long Beach, told the Beacon last December. “The surveillance video is extremely graphic, and unlike anything I have ever seen in my seven years.”

A Los Angeles Superior Court records search showed Caceres had no previous convictions.
