Female Officer Accused of Sex with Juvenile

(Fresno, California) This story is about two weeks old.

A former Fresno County probation officer has surrendered to police on charges of having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old ward whom she met while working at Elkhorn boot camp.

Adriana Renee Rivera, 28, is free on $17,500 bail. She will be arraigned in Fresno County Superior Court on Jan. 23.

A criminal complaint charges Rivera with felony sexual intercourse with a minor and felony accessory in that she allegedly harbored and concealed the boy from authorities after he ran away from the Elkhorn facility.

Rivera also faces misdemeanor counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and of obstructing or delaying a peace officer.

Rivera faces up to five years and eight months in prison if convicted of all four charges, Assistant District Attorney Bob Ellis said.
The boy is described as a "gangbanger with tattoos" and Rivera claims he threatened her. Even so, it appears that Rivera is unsuited for law enforcement work.
