Mukilteo man who sexually assaulted students gets over 2 years

In October, Cameron Stone, 23, pleaded guilty to third-degree rape and third-degree rape of a child, both felonies.

MUKILTEO — A former Kamiak High School student who sexually assaulted multiple teenage girls was sentenced Friday to over two years in prison.

Initially in 2019, Cameron Stone, now 23, was under investigation for five counts of felony rape.

One girl told the Kamiak school resource officer she was hanging out with Stone in June 2018 in his car in an abandoned parking lot near the Kamiak football fields when he offered her his marijuana pen. Shortly after she used it, he sexually assaulted her, prosecutors alleged.

The girl, then 14, told Stone, then 18, to stop, but he refused. He told her it was fun, according to court documents. She reported the marijuana affected her ability to consent.

She didn’t report the rape because she worried what people would think of her, according to court papers. Fellow students didn’t believe her and called her names.

Another girl told the school resource officer Stone also took her to what Stone called “the spot” near the football fields. She told Stone to take her home, but he drove her there, instead.

He asked her to get in the back seat of the car. She did. They were talking when Stone kissed her. He repeatedly tried to take her pants off. She pulled them back up and told him to stop. He moved her so she couldn’t stop him and raped her, she reported.

The girl told police she was scared. She was worried people would think she was lying about the sexual assault.

In October, Stone pleaded guilty to two counts: third-degree rape and third-degree rape of a child, both felonies.

Under state sentencing guidelines, the defendant faced between 26 and 34 months in prison. In a plea agreement, prosecutors and the defense both recommended 2⅓ years.

Snohomish County Superior Court Judge Bruce Weiss expressed concerns the prison term was too brief, but he followed the recommendation.

“You didn’t honor them as people, as individuals,” the judge said of the victims. “You just used them for purposes of fulfilling your sexual desires and that’s really concerning to me. It appeared to me that you took advantage of your relationship with these people.”

He added: “These young ladies should have had the opportunity to decide when and with whom they were going to engage in sexual relations. You took that away from them.”

Weiss ordered the defendant have no contact with children after his release from prison.

Stone, who had no prior criminal history, declined to speak in court Friday.
