Santa Rosa, CA – February 19, 2019 – Defendant Noah
Luke Holland, 22 years old of Santa Rosa, was sentenced today to 25 years to
life in prison by the Honorable Bradford DeMeo for crimes committed against a
child during the commission of a residential burglary.
District Attorney Ravitch stated,
“This was a heinous act against a young child that rightfully will subject this
defendant to spend much if not all of his life behind bars. The victim has
remained incredibly strong through this process and we hope this lengthy
sentence aids her in moving forward.
The charges were a result of a
nighttime incident on January 4, 2017 in Rohnert Park where Holland located a
garage door opener in an unlocked vehicle and used it to access the 8 year old
victim’s residence. Once inside the home, Holland entered the girl’s bedroom
and assaulted her. When the child was able to scream Holland fled from the
home, but he left his clothing behind. A wallet in Holland’s pants contained
The case against Holland was set
for a trial to begin on December 28, 2018.
On December 26th, Holland entered into an agreement with the District
Attorney’s Office in which he pled no contest to two violent felony offenses
including forcible child molestation with an allegation that he committed the
offense during the commission of a residential burglary. Today, per the terms
of the agreement, Holland was sentenced by Judge DeMeo to twenty-five years to
life in prison.
The case was prosecuted by
Deputy District Attorney Andrew Lukas, assisted by District Attorney
Investigator Robyn Katz. Detective Deborah Lamaison of the Rohnert Park
Department of Public Safety headed the investigation.
