Defendant Convicted of Sexual Assault, False Imprisonment
DATE: September 25, 2018
CASE: Adbel Elbadry (Case #16F013497)
PROSECUTOR: Deputy District Attorney Kevin Jones, Adult Sexual Assault Prosecution Unit
Adbel Elbadry was convicted by a jury of forcible sexual penetration by foreign object and felony false imprisonment.
On May 23, 2014, the victim was selling tamales at a Sacramento area flea market. Elbadry approached her and offered her money to clean his house. The victim agreed and followed Elbadry to his house. Once inside, Elbadry followed the victim into a bedroom, pushed her onto a bed and sexually assaulted her. The victim was able to ultimately get away, but she did not report the crime for a year. In 2015, the Sacramento Police Department was notified of the crime and began to investigate. When officers searched Elbadry’s house, they found evidence linking him to the 2014 crime. The investigation also revealed that from 2003 to 2014, Elbadry was contacted by law enforcement six separate times after being accused of the same type of crime under similar circumstances. Elbadry had previously pled guilty to felony false imprisonment in 2003 and was sentenced to state prison.
Elbadry faces a maximum sentence of 8 years and 8 months in state prison. Sentencing is set for October 18, 2018, at 9:00 a.m. in Department 11 before the Honorable Trena Burger-Plavan.
