The Tito Rivera Story

Wednesday, September 18th 

5:30 - 8:00 PM

Carnegie Library Homewood Auditorium, 7101 Hamilton Avenue 

 

Tito Rivera was convicted and sentenced in 2008 to 60 to 180 years for breaking into an Oakland apartment on Aug. 25, 2007, robbing five male college students and raping a woman. Since then Rivera has filed numerous appeals in the state and federal systems, saying his rights were violated on various grounds. His case is now on appeal before the 3rd Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals for alleged due process violations. Attorney Paul Jubas, Esq. will present background on the original case and facts on which Rivera was convicted, what Rivera alleges actually happened that night, and the current appeal for alleged due process violations. Following this presentation Jubas, Lisa Freeland, Esq., Federal Public Defender, and other experts will engage in a panel discussion to raise awareness about this case and highlight issues in the criminal justice system.
