A former U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement special agent was arrested Wednesday morning on federal civil-rights charges for allegedly sexually assaulting two women in 2012, and then using his position as a law-enforcement officer to convince them not to report the incidents, according to a press release from the Department of Justice. John Jacobs Olivas—a 43-year-old from Riverside, California—raped one of the women in January 2012 after telling her “that the police would not be responsive to any report she may make about defendant Olivas because of defendant Olivas’ position as a federal law enforcement officer,” the DOJ alleged. He allegedly raped a second victim in September and November of the same year. “Olivas allegedly also made clear to this woman that police would not respond to any report she might make about attacks by Olivas,” the release says. Olivas joined ICE in 2007 and resigned in 2012. He was arrested Wednesday morning and has been charged with three counts of deprivation of rights under color of law.
