Oakley Woman Pleads Guilty to Five Counts Related to Statutory Rape of Minors
Martinez, Calif. – An Oakley woman was sentenced to almost eight years in prison for offenses related to the commission of lewd acts and statutory rape of minors between January and March of 2022.
On February 3rd, 2023, 35-year-old Jennifer Decarlo pled guilty to two counts of lewd acts upon a minor, two counts of statutory rape, and one count of meeting with a minor for lewd purposes. She will be required to serve 7 years and 8 months in state prison. Upon release from prison, she will be placed on parole and required to register for life as a sex offender.
The case centered on the grooming of young boys for sex by Decarlo and initially involved only one minor victim. However, due to additional investigative work by the Oakley Police Department, authorities located two additional minor victims. Further investigation resulted in evidence from social media demonstrating how Decarlo groomed and lured young boys to her home for the purpose of committing lewd acts on them.
Deputy District Attorney Chris Sansoe said, “Given the nature of the charges there is nothing that can be done to restore the innocence Jennifer Decarlo stole from these boys. However, we are satisfied knowing that she will serve a significant prison sentence followed by a requirement that she register as a sex offender for the rest of her life.”
Decarlo was sentenced on February 3, 2023, by the Honorable Judge Mary Anne O’Malley in the Superior Court of California, County of Contra Costa.
