A former Cal State Northridge soccer player was convicted Wednesday of raping a woman on the campus last year.

Davis Moreno-Jaime, 20, of Loma Linda, is facing eight years in state prison in connection with the January 2018 attack, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. He is set to be sentenced Oct. 18 at the San Fernando courthouse.

Moreno-Jaime — a 2017 Redlands High School graduate who scored on his only shot in 14 games with the Matadors as a freshman during the 2017 season — was initially charged last year with attacks on three women.

Prosecutors subsequently announced that they were unable to proceed on sexual battery and false imprisonment charges involving one of the women, while misdemeanor battery and criminal threats charges involving another woman were turned over to the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office for prosecution, according to Paul Eakins with the District Attorney’s Office.

Moreno-Jaime was taken into custody last August by Cal State Northridge police and released on bond, then subsequently re-arrested June 25, according to jail records.
