Man Pleads Guilty to Sexual Assaults

CREATED Sep. 6, 2012

INDIO - A Cathedral City man has pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting four teenage girls.

Jeffrey Sackman entered the plea Wednesday in court. He faces nine counts, including sexual penetration with a foreign object and oral copulation. He will be sentenced to 18 years in prison on October 3rd.

Prosecutors say Sackman lured a 15-year-old girl to his apartment, plied her with drugs and sexually assaulted her over a four-day period. Sackman posed as a 17-year-old boy on several social networking sites.
