North Attleboro Man Sentenced for Statutory Rape
A 31-year-old North Attleboro man who engaged in a months-long sexual relationship with a juvenile female in their shared home was sentenced to serve six years in state prison, Bristol County District Attorney Thomas M. Quinn III announced.
Jaime Amaya pleaded guilty last Friday in Fall River Superior Court to a multi-count indictment charging him with two counts of indecent assault and battery of a person over 14 years old and four counts of statutory rape.
The defendant was residing in a North Attleboro home with the girl and her family for several years. On diverse dates between January and June of 2015, the defendant engaged in vaginal and oral sex with the victim in the shared home. He also touched her breasts on several occasions and her vagina through her clothing.
After having sexual intercourse, the victim felt ill and was experiencing vaginal discomfort. The defendant went to a CVS in North Attleboro is spoke with a nurse practitioner and told the nurse he believed he may have a sexually transmitted disease. The nurse practitioner told the defendant he should have his partner tested for an STD also, at which point the defendant revealed to the nurse that this was not possible because his partner was not an adult. During this conversation, the defendant gave the nurse practitioner a false name.
After the conversation, the nurse practitioner contacted authorities about what had been told to her, and through further investigation, North Attleboro Police were able to determine the defendant’s true identity. By this time, the defendant had already fled the state. He was eventually located and arrested in Connecticut in October, 2015.
The case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Shelby Smith and the prison sentence was imposed by Judge Karen Green.
