A 24-year-old Lompoc man is facing felony charges for allegedly having unlawful sex with two members of a girls softball team, according to the Lompoc Police Department.

Johnathon Terrones was arrested Monday at his home on the 500 block of North Lupine Street, said police Sgt. Lane Middleton.

Lompoc detectives received information that Terrones was having sex with a member of the softball team, and investigation revealed there actually were two victims, Middleton said, adding that the acts were alleged to have begun more than two years ago.

Terrones was charged with lewd acts with a victim under the age of 14; oral copulation with a person under the age of 16, and unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor three years younger than the perpetrator, Middleton said.

Terrones, who has been involved in coaching youth softball for more than one year, was booked into Lompoc Jail, where he remained Tuesday in lieu of $100,000 bail.

Anyone with information that would assist in this investigation was being asked to contact the Lompoc Police Department Detective Bureau at 805.736.2341.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
