Peyton sentenced to 66 years to Life for Rape and Child Molestation

Lee Edward Peyton (1/15/1979), of Ojai, was sentenced to a term of 66 years to life in state prison by Ventura County Superior Court Judge Michelle Castillo. 

In May, a jury convicted Peyton of violating Penal Code section 261(a)(2), forcible rape, and three counts of Penal Code section 288(c)(1), child molestation, having heard evidence that Peyton sexually assaulted the fifteen-year-old daughter of a close friend after providing her drugs and alcohol.

The court subsequently found true special allegations that Peyton had been previously convicted of two prior serious and violent felonies.
