Paul Lee Hermes, 51, from Southern Humboldt pleaded guilty to charges of domestic violence and sexual assault on Wednesday, November 6 at the Humboldt superior court.
Hermes will face up to eight years in prison when sentenced on November 13 after he pleaded guilty to charges of spousal rape, sexual penetration by a foreign object, false imprisonment, and vandalism. He will also receive two strikes under California’s three strike law, which means he will automatically face 25 years of imprisonment if convicted of another felony in the future.
According to the prosecution, Hermes attacked his wife on the early morning of January 15 last year at their home near Redway.
