Elk Grove Man Faces Life in Prison For Sexually Abusing 4 Young Girls In Two Decades


An Elk Grove man, Ronald Edward Northrup II faces 120 years to life in prison for sexually abusing four young girls. He is 42. On Friday, September 11, 2020, a Sacramento jury convicted Northrup for the sexually-based crimes. His reign of abuse spanned 20 years.

Northrup had turned himself in on December 2016, after being sought after by Elk Grove Police. Detectives served a search warrant at his home, but he was not present at the time. He later told police that he would not turn himself in, but he eventually did. He has been detained at the county jail since that time.

His Victims

Northrup’s victims were between the ages of 5 to 11 years old. One victim was around 5 years old, another around 8 years old, and two were 11 years old. The victims were family members or related to people who Northrup knew. During the trial, one victim testified that Northrup had sexually abused her, but was told to lie and recant her allegations in 2013.

Northrup faces a maximum sentence of 120 years to life in prison. According to the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office, he was found guilty on all four counts, in addition to a multiple victim enhancement. His sentence will be on October 2, 2020 at 9:00 AM at Department 33 before the Honorable Laurel White. He remains in custody at the Sacramento County Main Jail.
