Man convicted of raping and pimping teen victim

San Francisco man was found guilty Wednesday of several felony charges including rape, unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor, pimping and pandering, according to the district attorney’s office.

Jaime Marcelo, 34, preyed on a 16-year-old he knew was a minor when the crimes were committed, San Francisco prosecutors said.

In October 2010, Marcelo lured the victim to his home and kept her there until the next month, when he was arrested for slashing the tires of a man Marcelo believed did not pay him enough for sex with the victim, prosecutors said.

Marcelo raped the victim while she stayed with him out of fear, prosecutors said.

An investigation led to a warrant being issued for his arrest in February 2011.

He was taken into custody on July 30, 2013, while trying to cross the U.S. border into Mexico, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors said Marcelo forced the victim to prostitute herself two times in October and November 2010.

District Attorney George Gascon said in a statement:

“This young woman was terrorized by this predator, but (Wednesday) the community held him accountable for his violent crimes…He preyed upon this victim’s vulnerabilities, such as the fact that she was disadvantaged and undocumented.”
