Oillie Rawshawn Tinoco, a 16-year-old sentenced this week to 24 years in prison for raping a woman in her San Luis Obispo home, had a troubled past — including a history of drinking alcohol, using drugs and truancy, according to his probation report.
The Tribune is identifying Tinoco because he was charged as an adult in the rape case.Tinoco ran away from home in Los Angeles to reunite with friends he had in San Luis Obispo County, according to his probation report.
“Initially (Tinoco) had money and was able to provide for himself,” the Probation Department report stated. “But then he felt like he needed more things. After a month or so of being in San Luis Obispo, he decided to commit residential burglaries and robberies.”
Tinoco was arrested after a San Luis Obispo woman reported that he broke into her apartment near Cal Poly on Sept. 17, 2010, and threatened to kill her if she didn’t stop screaming.

According to a search warrant, she told police that he forced her into sexual acts though she begged him not to.
Tinoco entered a plea in February of no contest to forcible rape, forcible oral copulation, sexual penetration with a foreign object and first-degree residential burglary.
He was sentenced Wednesday by Judge Jacquelyn Duffy in San Luis Obispo Superior Court.The probation report states that Tinoco is the third oldest of eight children that his mother has with multiple fathers, and that his parents were unable to provide adequate care for him.
The report also shows a history of poor grades, truancy and a report that he once threatened to blow up a school. He was last enrolled in a high school in Los Angeles.
Tinoco said he didn’t intend to hurt the San Luis Obispo woman — only to steal — when he broke into her home. But she said she’d call the police when he left. She said she’d do anything if he’d leave. That’s when the sexual assault occurred. It didn’t involve intercourse, he said.
“He believes there is both good and bad in him,” the report states. “He left home because he wanted to be free and then that bad person came out. He grew up in an area where everyone gets victimized and that is normal.”
The victim’s mother made a statement in court saying that the incident has traumatized her daughter and made the family fearful — causing loss of business, loss of sleep and inspired hatred.
“I don’t feel as much joy in my days as I used to, partly because I am always worried about (the victim) and partly because I am always looking for the worst in people,” the woman said.
The victim’s name isn’t being revealed because of the nature of the crime.
