EL RENO – Investigators have accused a Yukon man of sexually assaulting a woman while she was passed out.
Javier Rivera, 48, was charged Dec. 22 in Canadian County District Court with first-degree rape. The felony crime is punishable by not less than five years, life or life without parole in state prison.
This case stems from an investigation by Oklahoma City Police into an August 2021 incident reported on S.W. 11th Street in eastern Canadian County.
Assistant District Attorney Rebecca Boyer alleges Rivera committed first-degree rape when he had sexual intercourse with a female victim “who was at the time unconscious and that fact was known by” the defendant.
Allegations against Rivera are detailed in a probable cause affidavit signed by an Oklahoma City police investigator.
Officers responded to an Oklahoma City hospital where the victim told them she had been raped by Rivera at his home.
The woman told police she had gone out for drinks with Rivera and his girlfriend and became “very intoxicated”, according to the affidavit.
Rivera reportedly took her back to his home to stay for the night and she passed out, having to be helped into the house.
The affidavit describes how Rivera allegedly entered the bedroom where the woman was sleeping and raped her.
Rivera was arrested and booked at 6:46 p.m. Jan. 4 into the Canadian County Jail. Bond is set at $100,000.
A preliminary hearing conference is set 9 a.m. Jan. 20 before Special Judge Charles Gass. The judge is due to consider a motion to reduce the defendant’s bail.
THREE RAPE COUNTS FILED
In another sexual assault case, a Yukon man faces up to 45 years in prison after being charged with three counts of second-degree rape.
Kaden B. Wright, 19, was charged Jan. 9 in Canadian County District Court after an Oklahoma City Police investigation into incidents reported in July and September 2022.
If convicted, Wright could spend 1-15 years in state prison on each felony count.
Assistant DA Boyer alleges Wright had sexual intercourse with a 15-year-old girl on three occasions. The alleged crimes reportedly occurred at a home on S.W. 30th Terrace, which has a Yukon address but is in Oklahoma City limits.
The allegations are detailed in a probable cause affidavit signed by Jason Schneider, a member of the Oklahoma City Police Sex Crimes Unit.
The alleged victim was interviewed last fall at the Child Abuse Response Team (CART) House in El Reno, where she disclosed in detail four incidents – including one outside Canadian County.
The defendant’s attorney told the police investigator that Wright would not be interviewed about the allegations.
SKID STEER THEFT CASE
An employee at a Mustang boat detailing business has been named in connection with the theft of a $125,000 machine.
Guthrie’s Sergio Alonzo Jimenez, 28, was charged Jan. 9 with receiving/concealing stolen construction/farm equipment.
Assistant DA Justin Kemp alleges Jimenez on Aug. 11 was in possession of a 2022 Caterpillar skid steer that had been stolen from a Hinton resident.
The Canadian County Sheriff’s Office investigated the case against Jimenez, detailed in a probable cause affidavit signed by investigator Jerry Hendrick.
The skid steer loader had been tracked to the Mustang business on S.H. 152, where Jimenez worked.
Contacted by phone, Jimenez brought the skid steer – valued at $125,000 – to the sheriff’s investigations building. The metal V.I.N. plate had been scraped off and the GPS system was removed.
The defendant told investigators he had purchased the machine for $40,000 on July 31 from a man who lived near Banner Road and Interstate 40. Jimenez gave investigators the bill of sale but said the seller didn’t have a title.
If convicted of the felony crime, Jimenez faces up to 10 years in prison and a fine equal to three times the value of the stolen property plus restitution.
