Meet DA Nancy E. O'Malley

People v Jaime Rivera

On May 11, 2018, a jury convicted defendant Jaime Rivera of twelve sexual offenses against two victims, who were sisters.

Starting when she was just 12 years old, in 2007 or 2008, Jane Doe 1 was repeatedly and regularly sexually abused by the defendant, who was a family friend. The acts started in San Francisco and continued in Oakland when the victim’s family moved to Alameda County in 2009. The defendant continued committing sex crimes against Jane Doe 1 until April 2013, just before the victim turned 18. Jane Doe 1 suffered in silence and kept these horrible crimes to herself. In June 2017, the defendant sexually assaulted Jane Doe 2, Jane Doe 1's sister, in Oakland while Jane Doe 2 was sleeping. He continued the assault after Jane Doe 2 woke up. Jane Doe 2 called the police and the defendant was arrested on June 7, 2017. After the defendant’s arrest, Jane Doe 1 told police what the defendant had done to her over the course of years.

The defendant is scheduled to be sentenced on June 29, 2018.

The case was prosecuted by DDA Tim Wellman of our Sexual Assault Unit, with assistance by Inspector Veronica Ibarra and Victim-Witness Advocate Stephanie Lynch.
