San Francisco, CA –  San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins announced today that her office secured a conviction of Alex Chan-Carrillo (32), after a trial by jury for slapping a woman on the buttocks near an elementary school in the Richmond District.  Mr. Chan-Carrillo was convicted of sexual battery (PC 243.4).

“The jury’s verdict holds Mr. Chan-Carrillo accountable for his inexcusable and completely unacceptable behavior,” said District Attorney Brooke Jenkins.  “The jury’s verdict sends a message that San Franciscans will not condone this kind of disgusting behavior that far too many women endure on an almost daily basis.  I will continue to do everything in my power to fight for justice and ensure that victims of crime are supported and can move forward with their lives.”  

According to testimony and other evidence presented at trial, on July 27, 2023, Mr. Chan-Carillo slapped the victim on the buttocks, while riding his bicycle on the sidewalk.  He laughed as he rode away and secretly followed the victim home.  As the victim was inputting the code into her garage, she felt a presence behind her, turned around and saw Mr. Chan-Carrillo, standing within five feet of her.  Although terrified, the victim tried to make as much of a scene as she could to deter Mr. Chan-Carrillo, yelling at him to leave, screaming for her husband to come downstairs and help her.  Mr. Chan-Carrillo persisted and kept asking, “Can I come in?” trying to use his bicycle to prevent the garage door from closing.  The victim then took a picture of him, and threatened to call the police, but that did not stop Mr. Chan-Carrillo.  At that point, the victim abandoned the garage and ran upstairs and called police who later arrested him.

The case against Mr. Chan-Carrillo was successfully prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Christine Revelo-Lee, with assistance from paralegals Andres Hernandez-Ruano and Joshua Nickchen.  Victim Advocates Cindy Pelayo and Abigail Cordova worked closely with the victim throughout the pendency of this case and helped the victim feel empowered to testify and see this case through to the end.  Prosecutors were able to develop a strong case against Mr. Chan-Carrillo because of the investigation of the San Francisco Police Department’s General Work unit and the participation of the victim.

“I would like to thank the jury for their thoughtful review of the evidence and careful application of the law,” said Assistant District Attorney Christine Revelo-Lee. “They had the task of determining Mr. Chan-Carrillo’s specific intent and evaluating what was reasonable and unreasonable.  They connected with the victim’s powerful testimony, believed her and delivered justice.”

Sentencing is scheduled for April 9, 2024. Mr. Chan-Carrillo must register as a sex offender for ten years pursuant to Penal Code section 290.
