Registered sex offender gets prison term for assaulting women

August 11, 2011 |  4:17 pm

Kenneth Anthony Huskey is a registered sex offender, prosecutors say. A man registered as a sex offender in Alaska was sentenced Thursday to six years and eight months in state prison for sexually assaulting two Huntington Beach women and shoving another woman who was pregnant into the street.

Kenneth Anthony Huskey, 26, confronted a female clerk at a jewelry store in Huntington Beach in August 2010 and began grabbing and kissing her and making explicit comments, the Orange County district attorney's office said. He took her cellphone and called his cellphone so he could get her number.

Huskey fled the store and confronted two other women nearby about an hour later, prosecutors said. He pushed a woman who was eight months pregnant out of his way and cornered the other victim against a fence and demanded her phone number.

As the woman pleaded for Huskey to let her go, he grabbed her, according to prosecutors.

Huskey fled but was arrested later that day in a routine traffic stop in Huntington Beach after the victims had called police. Huskey was registered as a sex offender in Alaska after a 2003 conviction for sexual abuse of a minor, the district attorney's office said.
