Michael Hiscox, sentenced for molesting three boys, being released early from prison
Michael Hiscox, 55 years old, is currently an inmate at the Substance Abuse Treatment Facility and State Prison, Corcoran. He will be released, early, this month.
A jury convicted Michael Robert Hiscox on 11 counts of lewd and lascivious conduct with a child. (Pen.Code, § 288.) 1 Each count included a finding of “substantial sexual conduct” under section 1203.066, subdivision (a)(8). The jury also found the offenses involved multiple victims under sections 667.61 and 1203.066, subdivision (a)(7). The court applied section 667.61 to impose 11 consecutive terms of 15 years to life.
The case was prosecuted by Deputy DA Allison Jackson.
This link explains why the original sentence of 165 years, after resentencing was 28 years.
On appeal, his convictions were reaffirmed, he was resentenced though under the law in effect prior to November 30, 1994.

CHILD MOLESTER SENTENCED: "A Eureka man responsible for raping three boys every night for more than four years was sentenced Monday in Superior Court to 165 years to life in prison. Mike Hiscox, 42, was convicted in November of 11 counts of child molestation involving his former girlfriend's sons, who ranged in age at the time of the crimes from 7 to 12. Hiscox tearfully asked Judge John Feeney for leniency, saying that he was sorry for the trauma he'd inflicted on the boys but that he no longer engages in "aberrant behavior."
