Content warning: Rape

Johnny Dunbar may receive 24 years in state prison after allegedly sexually assaulting three women from Berkeley and breaking into their homes in 2008, as first reported by Berkeleyside.

Dunbar was initially arrested by Berkeley Police Department in 2016 — during which police found evidence of drug dealing as well as thousands of dollars in cash.  A couple of days later, the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office levied charges of forcible rape, oral copulation and attempted oral copulation. He was 16 years old when the alleged assaults took place but charged as an adult when he was 24 years old.

Dunbar’s formal sentencing will take place July 14 at the René C. Davidson Courthouse in Oakland.
