The Oakley Police Department became aware of the accusations against Jennifer Decarlo in March of 2022 and promptly initiated an investigation.
The Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office stated that initially, there was only one reported victim, however, upon further investigation, two additional victims were identified. The authorities reportedly discovered, through evidence obtained from social media, that Decarlo had manipulated the young boys and enticed them to come to her residence with the intention of performing illicit acts on them.
According to the police, Jennifer Decarlo’s victims ranged in age from 13 to 16 years old, and she had come into contact with them through connections such as family members, friends, or individuals she was acquainted with.
The sexual assaults are believed to have taken place between January and March of 2022.
Jennifer Decarlo was taken into custody on May 11th, 2022, and her bail was set at a sum exceeding 1 million dollars.
The District Attorney’s Office declared on February 3rd that Decarlo had entered a guilty plea to two charges of engaging in inappropriate behavior with a minor, two charges of statutory rape, and one charge of arranging to meet a minor for immoral purposes. As a result, she was sentenced to a term of 7 years and 8 months in state prison. Upon completion of her sentence, she will be required to serve a period of parole and will be registered as a sexual offender for the remainder of her life.
Deputy District Attorney Chris Sansoe expressed in a statement, “Given the nature of the charges, there is nothing that can be done to restore the innocence Jennifer Decarlo stole from these boys.”
Sansoe added, “However, we are satisfied knowing that she will serve a significant prison sentence, followed by a requirement that she register as a sex offender for the rest of her life.”
