A registered sex offender has been sentenced to 137 years in prison for breaking into a San Luis Obispo apartment and hiding for hours before pouncing on two women when they went to bed.
A jury convicted 30-year-old Billy Dewayne Anderson on Feb. 4 for robbery, burglary and assault with intent to commit rape.
A San Luis Obispo County judge sentenced him this week to 137 years to life, saying Anderson's prior residential burglaries and other crimes warranted the lengthy sentence.
Anderson is a registered sex offender who broke into the women's apartment on Oct. 13, then hid in the home for hours until the women went to bed before attacking them. The women struggled with Anderson before one of them crawled out a window to call police.
