MARTINEZ — A Concord man was sentenced to life in prison Friday for numerous felony convictions related to molesting a girl during a sleepover at his home. John Benny Gomez, 50, was convicted last year of nine felonies, including lewd and lascivious acts with a girl less than 10 years old at the time. Authorities say he forced the girl to perform oral sex on him, showed her pornographic images, and gave her an alcoholic beverage.
