Nevada presses claims for Segroves

Charles Segroves, a convicted sex offender in California, waived his right to an extradition hearing Monday.

He will be transported to a Douglas County jail within several days to face five felonies related to an alleged sexual assault of a young girl in Nevada. Sexual assault of a girl under 14 is one of the charges and it can be punished with 20 years to life in prison.

Friday, El Dorado County Superior Court Judge Suzanne Kingsbury sentenced Segroves to eight years in prison for assaulting the same girl at South Lake Tahoe.

As part of a plea agreement, the 40-year-old admitted he assaulted the girl. Douglas County District Attorney’s Office believes Segroves also committed a sexual assault on the girl, which reportedly began when she was 11, in Nevada.

“There’s a dispute as to where all this stuff occurred but one of addresses is a Cave Rock address,” said Douglas County Deputy District Attorney Dina Salvucci.

Segroves is a former South Tahoe Middle School assistant basketball coach and casino employee. Douglas County has charged the 40-year-old with two counts of sexual assault, lewdness with a child, unlawful child pornography and possession of pornography.
