On Wednesday, a 42 year old manager of a dry-cleaning business was sentenced to 95 years to life in Santa Ana. Jaime Zamora Ramirez was accused of rape of two women, which also included a 17-year-old, who worked for him.
According to the prosecutors, the teenager, who lived in the country illegally, was raped by Zamora in July 2009. So the manager had also took the advantage of the situation of the victim.
Jennifer Walker, the Orange County Deputy District Attorney, had said that Jaime had blackmailed the girl, as he had known that she was undocumented. The accused had told the victim that no one would believe her if she had reported that matter to the cops.
The prosecutors had then disclosed that the teenager had then told the incident to the co-workers, who had insisted her to report the matter to the cops. Before the 2009 incident, the manager had also raped a friend, in October 2008, with whom he had gone dancing. The case was being investigated but the accused was not charged when the minor had come and reported the matter. The jury had then found the accused guilty in both the cases, where he had committed sexual offenses.
