CA: Child molester slain by fellow inmate at California prison

[ – 7/11/18]

Authorities say a convicted child molester was beaten to death by another inmate just days after arriving at a California prison.

Wasco State Prison officials said Wednesday that 19-year-old Andres Ayon began striking 66-year-old Agustin Duran in the face and chest with his fists Saturday night.

Guards broke up the assault with a pepper spray grenade.

Duran was airlifted to an outside hospital, where he died Sunday afternoon. He arrived in prison July 2 to serve a life sentence after he was convicted in Los Angeles County of lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14 years old.

“Ayon, who was treated for minor injuries, arrived at the prison north of Bakersfield last month…”

Did they charge this man with murder, did they arrest him for committing a crime? Did they give him a lolly pop? The reporter did not give a story at all. The story is only a PR spot to tell the public that another one of us was a victim of a hate crime. And yes, I know we are not a protected class, but let’s call a spade a spade!!

And California CDCR has said that it will afford FEWER opportunities for vulnerable inmates to live in protective custody from now on. Perhaps it already has. This is worth us holding a demonstration and will draw attention to the open season on sex offenders in prison.

These murders have got to stop! What was Ayon’s motive? Was it over a TV etc or did he murder Duran BECAUSE of him being a RC? WE know the reason but can it be proven? Will anyone outside of us even care? Last time my DCS officer was here he mentioned that I’m building a fortress around my house. I just said to my DCS officer, yup. I have a 4′ fence around the front yard with a lockable gate and beware of dog and no trespassing signs; I have a 6′ privacy fence around the back yard; I… Read more »

RM – No one can blame you for building your fortress. Maybe it would help if you educate your DCS officer by stating. “Indeed and it is for my own safety.” “People such as myself are being murdered by society who do not want to believe those such as myself have changed.” Not that he would care but it would help him to understand why and maybe worth a try.

@Laura, I have talked to the officers. They listen, they agree, but will do nothing. I, as we all are, are trying to take their jobs away.

I think this kid did this to protect himself. He thinks that preying on a weaker person will gain him points in a primitive environment. At 19, the path he has chosen assures that his life is pretty much over anyway. A sad end to two lives.

The strong always dominate over the weak, but the smart always dominate over the strong.

lewd and lascivious act with a child under 14, was that (a) (d) what was the code? was it aggravated? forced? was there a deal? story says he’s a child molester, im not saying hes innocent but just another case of the media using strong inexcusable language, he could of rubbef himself, he could of touched, he could of kissed, yes all is very wrong but theres many pieces left out, theres many individuals with the lewd and lascivious act but there was no xxx involved,

And a life Sentence… something smells.

So when did the guards come in with pepper spray? After this poor man was beaten to pulp. Every guard on duty that night should be charged for murder.

Would it be possible for a lawsuit against Wasco and/OR CDCR for placing 66 year old Agustin Duran in this situation to begin with?

Last year when my loved one was in WASCO it was the guards calling him names out in the yard and being sure others heard. But they had protective custody a year ago. Will this be enough for a lawsuit on behalf for 66 year old Agustin Duran against WASCO/CDCR for placing him in this situation which caused him to be murdered? May he rest in peace.

I was in Wasco myself a few years back and I can tell you with no uncertainty, this could have just as easily happened in their so-called protective custody, or Special Needs Yard(SNY). Both there and in county lockup, I heard guards say things that practically encouraged others(including guards who were being trained) to target offenders who were in for sex crimes.

I bet you the murderer won’t even get 10 years for this. America’s politics and naive public openly accepts violence and thinks it’s a ‘normal way of life’. However, you touch someone the wrong way and you get LIFE in prison, because we all know touching is worse than murder! Talk about royally screwed-up priorities. Go ‘Murica!

Sadly, this is true. You need to look no further than our TV and other entertainment media. The Walking Dead has an incredible amount of violence. But they still can’t show a nipple. Because, you know, the general audience if totally fine seeing seeing point-blank the lead character tear our another characters throat with his bear teeth, or point-blank reduce a characters face and head into a puddle with a barbwire covered baseball bat, but a nipple will surely corrupt the younglings.

If remember correctly Janice made a remark to be “watching out” for something as if she was implying some sort of litigation on the horizon in regards to harm and SOR issues. Curious if that’s coming soon???

Anybody who has been to prison knows that stories like this are a real threat, every single day. This is true from the moment an offender arrives in reception until the moment he walks out the door. It’s compounded during reception because there are so many inmates, from so many different places and backgrounds. It does ease up a little bit when an inmate reaches his mainline yard. But that’s only true if the inmate has handled himself well up to that point, and there are many in similar situations at the PC yard. And now, CDCR is apparently dissolving… Read more »

Huh ? we cant have pepper spray ? what state is that in or what law ? im in CA the only thing I cant have is a gun …aka firearm…. Im getting pepper spray, a bow and arrow, and maybe even a few high powered lasers 🙂

Start with 22810PC in California-Stan. If you still have questions, get back to me.

the code you quoted is for tear gas and it only states that persons who have been convicted of misuse of tear gas can’t have it California Penal Code Section 22810 22810. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, any person may purchase, possess, or use tear gas or any tear gas weapon for the projection or release of tear gas if the tear gas or tear gas weapon is used solely for self-defense purposes, subject to the following requirements: (a) No person convicted of a felony or any crime involving an assault under the laws of the United States, the… Read more »

You believe that. I hope you never have to use them because they will throw enhancements on you. Sounds like you’re atleast of parole. They will lock you up for a water gun or a knife being not in the kitchen the . Good luck

Matt wow man after that I feel like I know you Bro . yep I was in Corcoran , I was one of the first 26 people to go to C yard , and we helped set up tv’s even planted grass that would not be there long , everything was just prison for about the first year and the it hit ! they brought in every fool from all over the state RC’s were on the menu for entertainment for sure , the whole was over on B yard and I was in that hole 4 times in 2… Read more »

People are so deluded and brainwashed to believe that attacking someone for being a “sex offender” is an honorable thing, when there is nothing honorable about that at all. These victims of these vigilante attacks are victims and for these attackers they are nothing but dangerous criminals.

To me, attacking an old man with a offense that makes him low hanging fruit shouldn’t get him any points for anything but cowardice.

I went to Wasco for reception. My yard was split 3 buildings general population and 3 buildings special needs. I just remember being on high alert whenever I was going anywhere because anyone from the SNYs were green lit. Wasco was very active. I was put with the level 3’s and 4’s. There were at least 3 fights a week. I remember one day when we were lucky enough to get time on the yard we were instructed “yard down”. Two guys in a GP building beat up a fellow inmate. That inmate died on the way to the hospital.… Read more »

CDCR doesn’t care about its inmates. CDCR creates crisis and hysteria to rationalize more funding to its bureaucracy. Have you heard the story of CDCR orchestrating a fictitious prison riot to intimidate then federal judge Thelton Henderson from alleviating prison overcrowding? Judge Henderson tells it in his documentary: Soul of Justice. I remember when I was sentenced to prison, my first and only arrest. CDCR initially housed me in General Population (GP). Because I was sentenced under 290.006, and my crime was not a specified sex offense, CDCR claimed that it did not have record of my 290 status. For… Read more »

I was scared…and now I’m petrified after reading the comments. My son was incarcerated for three years, 10 years ago. I thought that life could not ever get any worse. He sailed through without any issues, as well as parole. He had a new life with a fiancé and a daughter. They were together for 7 years, until she threatened to take his daughter away. I won’t go into details here, because the situation is unreal, unfair, unjust. While he was in jail, she sold/stole every thing he had worked his whole life for. No one cared. She took his… Read more »

I have been fortunate enough to be in federal military facility.. the dormitory housed nothing but sex offenders with it’s own yard. Strict rules and maximum supervision of the guards.. This action wouldn’t happen in the environment I was in. I often wonder why other facilities didn’t follow the federal setup

Simple: They want us dead

@Matt: “Simple: They want us dead”

I think it’s more complicated than that. They use a divide and conquer strategy. As long as the inmates are focused on the RCs they aren’t focused on the CO’s. Nice and safe. The CO’s instigate but when the stuff hits the fan they will throw the shot callers under the bus and then order the bus driver to keep driving back and forth over them.

Jail out of control, transcript shows
SANTA ANA Inmate’s slaying prompts probe by grand jury

I was given a sentence in California Women’s Correctional Facility, Chowchilla, for lewd and lascivious with victim, 14-15 years old. Due to a Court Clerk error, one of my counts was errantly listed as “under 14”. This wasn’t corrected until after my release. I always immediately stuffed any papers listing my convictions into stamped envelopes and mailed them home. After my initial housing in Reception, I was twice housed in the same cell with women who there due to allegedly killing a RC; one had killed a man who had molested her daughter, the other had killed a rapist from… Read more »
