A former Cal State Northridge student was sentenced to eight years in state prison for sexually assaulting a woman on the school’s campus in January 2018, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced Friday.
Davis Moreno-Jaime, 20, was convicted on one count of forcible rape in September after he was arrested in connection with multiple sexual assaults. Authorities said that they believed Moreno-Jaime attacked multiple victims between April 2017 and July 2018 throughout Southern California.
“This was not your stereotypical jumping-out-of-the-bushes type of thing,” CSUN Police Chief Anne Glavin said at the time, explaining that Moreno-Jaime knew the victims.
The District Attorney’s Office was unable to proceed with counts related to a second victim and dismissed them during a preliminary hearing. Misdemeanor counts related to a third victim were severed and are being prosecuted by the city attorney’s office, public information officer Ricardo Santiago said.
Those charges are related to an incident that occurred on July 4-5, 2018, said Santiago.
Moreno-Jaime, a business marketing major, was also a member of CSUN’s soccer team. On Friday, he was ordered to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
Punishment for rape in California typically results in a sentencing of up to eight years in prison. A sentence can increase if the crime involves a child victim, or two or more assailants.
