Richmond Man Faces 15 Years to Life in State Prison for Sexual Assault of 2 Minor Girls
Martinez, Calif. – Yesterday, defendant Ramiro Jimenez-Osorio of Richmond (73-years-old) pleaded guilty to two felonies for his repeated sexual assaults against two minor Jane Does under the ages of 14. The assaults occurred on multiple occasions from 2012-2015. After the victims in this case reported the improper conduct committed by the defendant, he fled prosecution and arrest to El Salvador.
On October 31, 2019, the Honorable David Goldstein in Department 6 sentenced the defendant to a term of 15 years to life in state prison. The defendant was previously convicted of a felony sexual assault of a minor in 2007. The prior conviction was charged as an enhancement.
“I want to emphasize how important the work of the Richmond Police Department was to successfully bring this case to a just resolution. RPD detectives and officers never gave up on seeking justice for the victims. Their work led the defendant to come back to the United States after years abroad in El Salvador,” said Deputy District Attorney Jay Melaas. DDA Melaas prosecuted the case on behalf of our Office and assigned to the Sexual Assault Unit.
To protect their confidentiality, our office does not release the name or age of the victim, or their relationship to a defendant.
