The sentence was imposed last week by the Alajuela Criminal Court, but was made public on Monday, May 4.

According to the Prosecutor’s Office, the sexual assaults occurred between April 2015 and March 2017, when the accused took advantage of the moments he was alone with the victim, who are the time was between 13 and 14 years old.

“As this (prosecutor’s) office showed, as a result of sexual assault, the young woman became pregnant, so the neighbors denounced it to the Patronato Nacional de la Infancia (PANI). The institution intervened and took her to one of their shelters.”

“However, it was not until September of the previous year when the offender told PANI officials what Rivera had done to her, so they accompanied her to file the complaint and, immediately, the Gender Unit ordered the arrest of the accused,” explained the Prosecutor’s Office through a statement.
