A 30-year-old man in California will spend the rest of his life behind bars for abominably attacking his girlfriend’s 2-year-old son, torturing, beating, drugging, and sodomizing the child with an unknown object. Placer County Superior Court Judge Michael W. Jones on Friday ordered Jeremy Dawn Wilson to serve a sentence of life in prison without the possibility for parole for the horrific 2020 attack on the toddler, authorities announced.

“In the face of unspeakable cruelty and beyond heinous acts, justice has been served,” Placer County Sheriff Wayne Woo said in a statement. “Today, we see the rightful sentencing of a monstrous individual who committed vile acts against an innocent two-year-old child. This life imprisonment stands as a resolute message that such abhorrent behavior will never be tolerated, and we will relentlessly protect our community’s most vulnerable citizens.”

According to a press release from the Placer County Sheriff’s Office, the incident unfolded in February of 2020 when Placer County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call regarding a “horrific” attack on a a small child boy in the quiet neighborhood of Foresthill. The young victim was found by his mother and immediately rushed to the emergency room.

The child’s home, typically a place of safety and comfort, had become the scene of unimaginable horror. Doctors told investigators the victim had “over a dozen fresh adult bite marks covering his body,” suffered extreme bruising and swelling on his face and mouth, and had “bruising, lacerations, and an abrasion to his genitalia.”

“The child was tortured, beaten, drugged, and sodomized with an unknown object in his own home,” the sheriff’s office wrote in the release.
