Glenn Co. Jail inmate rearrested on additional rape charges

Jan 24, 2014 3:51 PM

Additional rape charges were filed against Jesus Franco Chavez in a Glenn County Superior Courtroom this morning. The 29-year-old Orland man was already being held in the Glenn County Jail for previously filed rape and sexual assault charges against the same victim.

Chavez, who was re-arrested in the Glenn County Jail yesterday, was formally arraigned today but did not enter a plea.

According to the Glenn County Sheriff’s Office, Chavez was arrested last September by the Orland Police Officers on suspicion of false imprisonment, sexual penetration by a foreign object, and rape. During the investigation, detectives from the Glenn County Sheriff’s Major Crimes Unit were contacted about a second rape allegation involving Chavez and the same victim which reportedly occurred on August 3, 2013 in Glenn County. That investigation led to the fresh arrest of Chavez.

His next scheduled court date is February 5.
