Convicted child rapist, Juan Adriel Cambray-Miranda, was given 80-years to life in State Prison for his crimes.

A San Luis Obispo man has been sentenced to life in prison after pleading guilty to sexual assault and rape of two juvenile girls, the District Attorney’s Office announced.

D.A. Dan Dow’s office said Juan Adriel Cambray-Miranda, 33 of SLO was sentenced to 80-years to life in prison on four counts of  “sexual assault involving two separate children, including Aggravated Rape of a Child Under the Age of 14, Sexual Penetration of a Child Under the Age of 14, and two counts of Committing Lewd and Lascivious Acts on a Child Under the Age of 14.”

Cambray-Miranda ‘s crimes occurred between April 2016 and May 2018, in Atascadero the news release said. He also received four years in a separate residential burglary case that he also pled guilty in, the D.A. said. That burglary happened on May 31, 2021 in San Luis Obispo. The prosecutor said Cambray-Miranda was a “predator.”

“For years,” Deputy D.A. Kimberly Dittrich the prosecutor in the case said, “this predator leveraged a position of trust to manipulate and sexually assault these young survivors. I am in awe of the strength and courage shown by the two young victims in reporting these crimes, which was necessary to hold this defendant accountable.”

The rape cases were investigated by the Atascadero Police and SLOPD and the Sheriff’s Department worked the burglary case. Dittrich of the Sexual Assault Prosecution Team prosecuted both matters.
