Olga Diaz: NJ woman gets 35 years jail for sexually assaulting, filming 5-year-old
MONMOUTH COUNTY, NEW JERSEY: A Long Branch woman was sentenced on Friday, October 15, to 35 years in state prison for planning and carrying out the sexual assault of a toddler with an accomplice a little more than four years ago. The victim was under the age of 5 at the time and was known to Diaz, authorities said. Earlier in April, Olga Diaz, 35, pled guilty to planning and taking part in the sexual assault in 2017.
In court Diaz admitted that she and 34-year old Jaime Mauricio Leon of Bloomfield planned out their sexual assault of the child, she knew, via text message. As per reports, Diaz texted Leon nude photos of the child on June 15, 2017, and the following day, she sent him a video of herself sexually assaulting the child. He then went to meet Diaz and then they sexually assault the child together, Monmouth County Prosecutor Chris Gramiccioni said.
As per reports, the two were caught in the act by someone passing by who reported alerted cops, something he spotted through a window outside a Seaview Avenue apartment unit. The investigation began on June 16, 2017. Diaz was arrested the same day and Leon was arrested in Fort Lee about a week later.
Authorities later recovered all the texts, images, and videos they compiled of sexually assaulting a toddler. Diaz and Leon also engaged in sexual acts with each other, authorities said. Police learned that Diaz gave the child sleeping medication.
Diaz pled guilty to two counts of first-degree aggravated sexual assault and one count of endangering the welfare of a child by causing or permitting a child to be portrayed in a sexually suggestive manner and filming it. Leon was sentenced in 2019 to 25 years in state prison for first-degree aggravated sexual assault and second-degree possession of child pornography.
Diaz will be 64 before becoming eligible for parole, she has to serve 33½ years of the prison sentence before becoming eligible for parole, in accordance with New Jersey’s Jessica Lunsford Act and No Early Release Act. Upon release, she will be required to register under Megan’s Law and placed on parole supervision for life. Megan's Law is the name for a federal law in the United States requiring law enforcement authorities to make information available to the public regarding registered sex offenders. Laws were created in response to the murder of Megan Kanka.
“The depths of depravity necessary for two people to plan and commit a crime of this nature together, against a helpless child, are both beyond the capacity of the English language to suitably articulate and beyond the capacity of human comprehension to adequately understand,” Acting Monmouth County Prosecutor Lori Linskey said in a statement. “There is no place in any civilized society for anyone capable of such acts.”
Diaz was represented by Al Kapin, Esq., of West Orange. Leon was represented by Michael Kuhns, Esq., of Lawrenceville.
