Citizen of the Week! Jaime Rivera Used Lake Forest City Hall to Rape His Own Daughter

Thumbnail image for CitizenOCW_200x200.jpg
Beginning at the age of 11 and for the next four years, Jaime Rodriguez Rivera's daughter served as a sex slave in Orange County.

But, incredibly, that's not the most alarming fact.

The frail, skinny girl knew her serial rapist well.

He is her father.

An office cleaner by trade, Laguna Hill's Rivera frequently took his daughter with him to various OC businesses including churches, bookstores, an electric company and--get this--the Lake Forest City Hall--at night and, at his disgusting whim, used her for sex.

His incest included forcing the girl to drink beer and then fondling, digitally penetrating, raping and sodomizing her so often she bled, according to court records.

Perhaps because Rivera didn't believe he'd sunk low enough, he also let strangers rape his daughter in public settings.

When the girl was 12 years old, he took her with him to clean an Orange County race-car business and, once there, told two unknown men that she was 17 before allowing them to sodomized her, according to court testimony.

A year later, he took his daughter to a Lake Forest bookstore, ordered her to play "spin the bottle" with two different strangers as a way to strip her before the men took turns sodomizing her.

Jaime Rodriguez Rivera: Another sick father
Whenever the terrified girl protested or struggled, Rivera employed a carrot and stick tactic. He'd threaten that she'd never see her siblings again if she talked. At other times, he told her that she was more than his daughter. She was, he explained, his "special" girlfriend and wife.

During the entire four years of the abuse the mother was present but unaware, according to court testimony.

At his 2010 trial, Orange County prosecutors easily convinced a jury that Rivera was guilty of 10 serious sex crimes including lewd acts on a child, aggravated sexual assault, forcible rape and forcible sodomy. Superior Court Judge Gregg L. Prickett sentenced him to prison. Unhappy, he appealed his convictions as unfair. There was no proof that he forced his daughter to participate in sex acts, he argued.

This week, a California Court of Appeal based in Santa Ana considered and rejected Rivera's cries. They ruled there had been solid evidence that the girl felt duress during the incest.

"The defendant is the victim's father and, therefore, was in a position of authority over her," the justices wrote in a 12-page, March 13 opinion. "The victim testified she was scared of the defendant and always nervous that he might commit more sexual acts against her. The victim stopped trying to say 'no' to the defendant because he always ignored her . . . She felt unable to refuse the defendant."

Upshot: Rivera, 41, will continue to serve his 85 years to life prison sentence.

There seem to be a lot of morons posting racial remarks on this page.  Wake up, dipshits!  Depravity has no racial boundaries. Lowlife scumbags are found in every culture.  Blaming an entire race for the actions of a few only shows your own stupidity.

The only good thing about this sad story is, that they are going to be playing spin the bottle with his ass in prison.

Two suggestions for posters, one question for author of this story:

1.  Please write in English so that most of the audience can understand your point.

2.  Please refrain from using the "F Bomb" and other vile language against each other.  It really sounds ignorant and strips your comments of any credibility.

Question for author:  Is the assailant in this case, Mr. Jaime Rodriguez Rivera, in the US legally, or is he an illegal alien?  The public has a right to know.

SIncerely Yours,

Jim Gilchrist, President, The Minuteman Project

couple of things are odd, "office cleaner by trade" Emptying trash and wiping/dusting desks is not a trade.  During the four year period the mother was present but unaware. Huh? Anyone believe that? The mother was most likely molested as a child, looked at it as normal behavior after all her father did it to her. The others who participated? Where are they?  Chains around his ankles and dragged behind a truck down a dusty road seems about right for this puss bag. stop occassionally for a salt water bath, repeat.

As a child who was molested for about two years of my childhood I can tell you that as a mother now If I ever found out that any of my FOUR daughters were being abused I would be the one going to jail because the bastard(s) would all be dead if left up to me . However I do think its possible that she didnt know what was going on

That's what happens when you simply abandon the legitimate immigration system meant to educate, enculturate, and socialize the uncouth immigrant into a good American ready to take their place in our great society as part of the fabric of the American social contract (weeding out the nondesirables in the process).

Now they are almost all the undesirables who can't make it in the country they run away from (though they hold such great machismo pride about the same country they abandoned afterwards) aiming high for the American taxpayer's dollars which means pumping out even more unencultured, unsocialized, and uncouth anchors for the welfare. It's no surprise that one of them grew up to be this guy.

That's the replacement system most of you OC Weekly readers (sans-me of course) support. And the demographics over the past fifty years explain why: you might just be one of them... lolol.

Fixate Gustavo,

Why does El Informador in GDL publish from U of GDL's sociology dept. that 7 of 10 MX women have been raped, and victims of physical abuse in MX by males in the MXFamily: father, step-father, brother, step-brother, uncle, grandfather?

I can't wait until we are just like MX, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras--no rule of law, no social or ecomic infrastructure, gangs and RW elites rule.

Seriously, I think we've had four cases like this within a half right, ritch here in River Ci..I mean OC. From the same demographic. No, I don't mean diddling with a boys penis (we is obviously wrong wrong wrong), but raping your own daughter -- much much much wronger. In fact, in the last case, if I remember, the dude actually sired a kid with his daughter.

Yes, you can scour the entire 1 billion white people in the world and find a few similar cases -- like in Austria -- but we've had two from this particular demographic, see : Rubicel Aguilar Perez  , or Benito Evarsito Rayo , or Jasinto Duran Meneses -though to be fair the last dude looks actually Hispanic, rather than pure Maya.

 And each one probably racks up about 2-3 million is costs associated with prosecuting their loose culos.  This 2-3 million wipes away the supposed economic benefit of hundreds on the hard working immigrantes we're supposed to worship.

You are an ignorant. These are sick people, and have you not heard the news that a white pedophile hurt so many children in an elementary school. There is evil in all as there is good in all, regardless of race.

given the opportunity a mexican will lie to get out of a jam instead of telling the truth. even when the consequences would be that we learn and move forward my hispanic workers would stand there and lie to my face. I could see them doing something wrong and at our next safety meeting would bring it up and they would lie. Very disappointing. Other men of different races, cultures, nope. Whites, blacks, phillipinos, told the truth, mexicans not so.could not figure it out, some of my best workers yet they lied, hard to trust once you get caught lying.

 My level? You have a big mouth behind the safety of the internet, you're the coward and can't face it. All you can do is to pretend to be the better but that just isn't the case. You're a waste of time, you're the joke. I'm the one who lowered himself by arguing here  I should've known better.

 Your rhetoric is clever yet still bs. I'm a gang memeber huh? If you only knew my experience w multi cultural races you'd keep your mouth shut. You know as well as I do all your doing is inciting racial hatred w your comments. In all actuality you sound insane, reasonable statements? You have none and as for me being a coward? Name the place.  

Yup
Yup

Soho, obviously one who is most likely a gang member or has kids in gangs. I am stating the facts as i see them. Your response is derogatory or inflammatory because you have nothing with substance to say. Maybe my comments are BS to you however you don't know my race or background. Mexicans are cowards. They need to be in a "gang" like a pack of rabid dogs, gaining strength only because one on one they are cowards. Mexico treats their immigrants with rape, beatings and deportation yet when it comes to the other countries that support their immigrants they demand different outcomes.  Soho, you are a racist to the max, a little coward who knows nothing but hate. Any reasonable statement goes blindly past you because the hate card is in your eyes.

 Sounds like you too suck on the same bs pipe. Your posts are hilarious, nice try though I guess when your white you gotta try something eh? HA HA  HA  

Yup

I have experienced the same thing Larry. The interesting thing also is they stick together, right wrong doesn't matter. The difference between races is simple, white people hold their own accountable. mexicans, blacks pull the race card out first thing. Obama was elected simply because he is black, or brown or tan or whatever he claims, one thing for sure he ain't white. With Obama's background and experience no way should he be the president.A mexican violates the law and the  gold race  card holders come on here defending them without a doubt. A certain individual associated with this paper usually chimes in by calling people that question Hispanics as stupid. The first one who has to resort to name calling in a discussion is the loser, he has nothing else so he name calls.  Larry not sure what to tell you. Encourage better behavior, encourage honesty but if you were taught to lie at an early age it is a hard habit to break.
