The Case of the Indecisive OC Rapist: Miguel Angel Rivera
|Rivera: I just can't make up my mind.|
Superior Court Judge Jonathan S. Fish told Rivera that if he acknowledged his guilt, he would receive close to a 50 percent reduction from the maximum possible prison sentence.
In September 2011, Rivera took the pretrial deal, which included his written acceptance of the details of his sex crimes.
But after Fish ordered him sent to prison the rapist changed his mind again.
Rivera--who is 6-foot-2 and 250 pounds--filed an appeal challenging his convictions.
He argued that . . . well . . . he didn't argue anything except that he didn't like his situation.
|On the one hand . . .|
Upshot: Rivera, 26, will continue to serve his nine-year prison sentence at Wasco State Prison.
