Ex-Cal State Northridge Student Athlete Sentenced to 8 Years for Rape
A former Cal State Northridge soccer player was sentenced Friday to eight years in state prison after being convicted of raping a woman on campus, prosecutors said.
Davis Moreno-Jaime, a 20-year-old from Loma Linda, was also ordered to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said in a news release.
Eight years was the maximum term the defendant had faced.
Moreno-Jaime was a freshman business marketing major when he was arrested on campus in August 2018 in connection with a rape that occurred that January.
At the time, he was suspected in a number of other sex assaults in the San Fernando Valley and at least one that occurred outside Los Angeles County. Officials indicated Moreno-Jaime knew the victims.
The defendant was originally charged with sexually assaulting a second woman and battering a third. But court records show that charges of false imprisonment and battery were dismissed or not prosecuted.
A jury found him guilty of one count of forcible rape last month.
