Convicted Temecula Felon Admits to Second Charge

Clifford Allen Alvarez, 45, on Friday admitted to a second charge of attempted kidnapping in connection with his ordering a girl into his vehicle.

A Temecula man already convicted of attempted kidnapping pleaded guilty to a second charge before another trial on that charge could be arranged.

Clifford Allen Alvarez was facing a trial on the second attempted kidnapping charge in connection with a March 28 incident in which he tried to lure a 13-year-old into his van.

He threatened to kill the girl if she did not comply but she ran off and hid, calling police on her cell phone, according to trial testimony.

The jury that convicted Alvarez on July 10 of attempted kidnapping and making criminal threats deadlocked on the second attempted kidnapping charge.

That charge stemmed from prosecutors' contention that following the first, unsuccessful kidnapping attempt, Alvarez tried to lure a 10-year-old girl into his van, according to trial testimony.

Riverside County Superior Court Judge Timothy Freer sentenced Alvarez to a prison term of two years and six months, to run concurrently with the three years and two months to which the defendant was already sentenced.

Alvarez now has two strikes because of the serious felonies.

They always say they get what's coming to them in prison, I don't think that's true! I would like to blow his knees out with a gun!
