Northern California man convicted of molesting boys receives 194-year prison sentence

A Northern California man has been sentenced to 194 years to life in prison for molesting boys in the 1990s.

A Contra Costa County Superior Court judge on Tuesday imposed consecutive sentences for 53-year-old Gordon Blake of Brentwood, who was convicted last month of 32 felonies.

Judge John W. Kennedy said the sexual abuse was "particularly callous and cruel," noting that some of the victims were vulnerable because they lacked family support and had no father figure.

The Contra Costa Times reports (http://bit.ly/UbqQX5 ) that Blake was active in local politics and twice ran for state office.

The case came to light when a county jail inmate told police and prosecutors that he was molested by Blake. Eventually, three other accusers came forward and testified at the trial.
