A registered sex offender convicted of attacking two women and two teenage girls in the South Bay will spend the rest of his life behind bars.
In May 2010, Leonard Earl Scroggins, 34, removed an GPS-monitor that was issued to him as part of his parole in Napa County.
Soon after he was arrested in a series of attacks including one where he put a knife to the throat of a 13-year-old and tried to force her into his vehicle in National City. The victim fought him off and reported the attack to police.
Scroggins was convicted of kidnapping, robbery and assault with a deadly weapon.
He was sentenced Tuesday to life in prison plus an additional 45 years for previous crimes.
Scroggins was listed on the Megan’s Law website as a Napa resident who has served time for rape.
