Man Sentenced to 40 Years in Prison For Attacks on Three Boys

by Contributing Editor

A man who pleaded no contest in connection with attacks on three young boys in restrooms at area parks was sentenced Tuesday to 40 years in state prison.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Jose I. Sandoval also ordered Eduardo Ciarelli, 40, to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

Ciarelli pleaded no contest last month to two counts of forcible oral sodomy of a child under 14 and one count each of forcible lewd act on a child and lewd act on a child.

He was arrested by Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies following an Oct. 22, 2017, attack on a 6-year-old boy in a restroom at Smith Park that was adjacent to a snack bar where the youth’s father was.

The boy’s father found his son crying when he went to check on him, and the boy pointed to Ciarelli, who was standing behind a stall door, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

Ciarelli ran outside, but was apprehended by the boy’s father and a security guard.

He was subsequently charged with attacks on a 7-year-old boy at Belvedere Park in East Los Angeles in January 2011 and a 6-year-old boy at Rio Hondo Park in Pico Rivera in July 2011, according to Greg Risling of the District Attorney’s Office.

All three of the boys had gone into the park restrooms alone, according to authorities.
