People v. Fareed Traylor

On May 2, 2019 a jury convicted Fareed Traylor of four counts of Oral Copulation with a Child 10 and Under, one count of Sexual Intercourse with a Child 10 and Under, one count of Continuous Sexual Abuse and one count of Lewd and Lascivious Acts of a Child Age 14. The defendant sexually assaulted Jane Doe from the time she was 7 through 14. The sexual assaults occurred on a weekly basis as the defendant and Jane Doe moved to different cities including Oakland, San Leandro and Hayward.

The defendant manipulated Jane Doe by telling her that the sex acts were things two people did when they loved each other. At the age of fifteen, Jane Doe finally found the courage to tell the defendant the sexual acts were molestation and not love. The defendant told her he had made peace with God and she should move on with her life. Jane Doe struggled to come to terms with the man she had known all her life. She ultimately disclosed the abuse at school and an ensuing investigation by the Oakland Police Department took place. Sentencing will be on June 26, 2019. The defendant faces 101 years to life in prison. The case was prosecuted by DDA Amanda Chavez, Inspector Nicole Elder and Victim Witness Advocate Marina Hammergren.
