A former Cal State Northridge soccer player pleaded not guilty Tuesday to rape and other charges stemming from alleged attacks on three women this year.
Davis Moreno-Jaime, 19, of Loma Linda, is charged with one felony count each of forcible rape and false imprisonment by violence and one misdemeanor count each of sexual battery and battery, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
The criminal complaint alleges that Moreno-Jaime forcibly raped a woman between Jan. 1 and Jan. 31, and sexually battered and falsely imprisoned another woman and battered a third woman on or between July 4 and July 5.
He could face up to 12 years in state prison if convicted as charged, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
The 2017 Redlands High School graduate played soccer at Cal State Northridge, and the alleged attacks reportedly occurred on or near the campus. But authorities revealed few details of the case following his arrest, including whether the alleged victims are CSUN students.
Moreno-Jaime was taken into custody Aug. 3 by the Cal State Northridge Police Department and has remained behind bars since then in lieu of $1 million bail, according to jail records.
He scored on his only shot in 14 games with the Matadors as a freshman during the 2017 season.
