Trial back on for rape defendant
December 28, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Kyle Vogt

A South San Francisco man accused of raping one of his girlfriend’s half-sisters for eight years and behaving inappropriately with another and a neighbor girl is mentally fit for trial, according to two court-appointed attorneys.

The unanimous conclusion reinstated criminal proceedings against Kyle Clifton Vogt who faces life in prison if convicted. Vogt, 38, has pleaded not guilty to 11 counts including rape, continuous sexual abuse of a child, sending harmful sexual matter to a minor, six counts of lewd acts with a minor under 14 and two counts of lewd acts with a minor over 14 by someone more than 10 years older.

South San Francisco police arrested Vogt in 2012 after reportedly learning he had been carrying on a sexual relationship with his girlfriend’s half-sister starting in 2002 when the victim was 5. The girl told her mom what was going on when she turned 13, according to prosecutors.

After being taken into custody, Vogt was also accused of molesting one of the girlfriend’s other half-sisters between 2000 and 2012 along with a neighbor girl who was the first victim’s friend. Those acts allegedly included sending inappropriate texts, kissing and groping. Vogt threatened some of girls with bodily harm to keep them from talking, police said.

He split his time between homes in South San Francisco and Davis where he lived with his 30-year-old girlfriend. Her younger sisters often visited the couple and periodically lived with them in both cities, according to South San Francisco police.

Vogt’s attorney raised the question of competency the morning jury trial was to begin and criminal proceedings were halted until the doctors could conclude if he is able to aid in his own defense.

After putting the trial back on track Friday, Judge Mark Forcum scheduled an April 8 jury trial.

He remains in custody without bail.
