Lloyds’ one-year sentence miffs observers

A husband and wife were each sentenced Monday to one year in jail on several charges of molestation during an emotionally charged hearing in Tuolumne County Superior Court.

Judge Donald Segerstrom sentenced Lynn Leroy Lloyd and Elisa Marie Lloyd, both 34, who pleaded guilty to the charges on July 8. They were listed as transients during the time the crimes were committed.  

 

The pair also must register as sex offenders for the rest of their lives and were ordered to stay away from the 14-year-old victim. 

Each will get 75 days credit for time served. They were ordered to pay a combined $3,000 in restitution.

Tuolumne County Deputy District Attorney Eric Hovatter began Monday’s hearing by expressing regrets about his involvement in the plea agreement.

The Lloyds each pleaded guilty to five counts of molestation and a charge of conspiracy to commit a crime. Each was initially charged with 12 counts.

“I don’t know if it would have changed anything, but I would have charged them with all counts,” he said in an interview outside court.

“There are things I would take back,” he said.

Hovatter said he agreed to drop several of the felony charges because Segerstrom indicated the Lloyds would not go to prison even if found guilty of all charges.
