Officers Reported for Spree of Sexual Abuse, Multiple Children Molested

FRESNO, Calif. (CN) – Two girls housed in juvenile hall were sexually assaulted by two different correctional officers, one of whom has since been arrested on sex-related charges, according to two separate complaints filed in Federal Court.

The girls, both identified in their lawsuits as Jane Doe, were detainees at the James G. Bowles Juvenile Hall, a secure detention facility for minors in Bakersfield, California.



Jane Doe 1 says that officer Cesar Navejar, a named defendant in her case along with Kern County, sexually assaulted her on multiple occasions from Sept. 8, 2014 to Sept. 29, 2014. Navejar was arrested on Oct. 30, 2014 on charges of sexual penetration by force and sexual battery, and is expected to go to trial in January.

Doe 1 says that Navejar approached her in her room on several occasions, where he fondled her breasts and hugged and kissed her.

On one occasion, Navejar “came to plaintiff’s room and ordered her to get out of her bed and walk over to him. Navejar then used his finger to penetrate plaintiff’s vagina,” the complaint says.


“Several minutes later, plaintiff heard knocking on her exterior window. When she looked at the window, she saw Navejar, who was touching the window in a petting motion,” according to the complaint.

Jane Doe 2 says that correctional officer George Anderson sexually assaulted her between Sept. 1, 2014 and Jan. 30, 2015 by “hugging her, kissing her, grabbing her buttocks, fondling her breasts, and digitally penetrating her on multiple occasions.”

Anderson is a defendant in Doe 2’s case along with Kern County.

Anderson also asked Doe 2 “to have sex with him, to orally copulate him, and to masturbate him,” but she refused, the complaint says.




Both Navejar and Anderson have been placed on administrative leave, said Kern County Counsel Theresa Goldner.

“People are presumed innocent until they have been found guilty. In this case, Mr. Navejar has not been convicted of anything and Mr. Anderson has not been charged with anything,” Goldner said.

“The county intends to vigorously defend against both of these lawsuits,” she added.

David Cohn, attorney for both of the now-adult women, said that he is very surprised that the county “would allow for that kind of close contact” between male officers and female inmates.

He said both the women have been tremendously affected by the alleged incidents and are receiving counseling.

“They wonder what they did wrong, whether they did something to encourage this, which they did not,” Cohn said. “This is something they are not going to get over very easily.”

Although Cohn is not aware of any other girls coming forward with accusations against the officers, he said he would not be surprised if some do come forward after the accusations become more public.

“Generally, these tend not to be isolated incidents,” he said.




Doe 2 allegedly let the assaults go on for months without reporting them, which Cohn said is not surprising given the fact that they happened in a situation where she was “essentially a captive.”

“Our society says that if you’re the victim of a sexual assault or you have someone making unwanted sexual advances, you have a right to say no. You have the right to do whatever is needed to repel that perpetrator. You don’t have that option when you’re a prisoner, when you’re an inmate being held in a facility,” Cohn said, adding that such accusations by an inmate would likely not be believed.

“These young women who were juveniles were under the perception that by speaking out and by saying something to someone else, they could make their situation more difficult, so they were reluctant to do that,” he said.

Cohn said he has serious questions about the kind of background checks the county performs when hiring individuals to work at the juvenile hall with young women.

Although she could not go into detail, Goldner said the county performs “extensive background checks.”

She also said that girls at the juvenile hall can report incidents like those alleged in the lawsuits without fear of repercussion.

The girls seek punitive damages.

Cohn said he and his firm, Chain Cohn Stiles, are “going to protect them and do everything we can to not only eradicate these bad apples but work diligently to try to achieve just and reasonable compensation for them.”

    The situation of the police in the United States is about as crazy as if you were to hear about that the police force suddenly started hiring convicted rapists, murderers child molesters and violent criminals to be police officers. That’s basically what this is and its probablly what is going on. Some extremely sick people are running your government and they are doing this to people on purpose. They probablly know full well that these cops are totally fucked up, they might even look for fucked up people to hire as cops cause they want to destroy peoples lives. they are doing this on purpose, this is not just something that is randomly happening, this is very clearly an engineered situation, its too insane not to be.

    It’s not just juvenile detention centers either. I was in foster care – not because I did anything wrong, but because my mother was mentally ill and refused to send me to school. During the 6 years I was under the state of NY’s care, I was moved 14 times. In several of those placements, I was abused in one form or another.

    In one temporary shelter/group home – where many kids are initially placed for evaluation to determine whether they would be best served in foster homes or a group home setting – I was molested twice by a male counselor named Ed (leaving out his last name). The first time he mostly verbally made clear what he would “like” from me, but also had his hands on my chest and buttocks. The second time he got as far as lifting my shirt and trying to remove my bra before he was interrupted by another resident knocking on the office door… needless to say, I took advantage of the distraction to get away from him and did my best to avoid him after that.

    Ed was over 6 ft tall, weighing close to 250lbs. He played basketball and lifted weights. I was 13 yrs old, weighed less than 90lbs soaking wet, and had never had a physical fight in my life. There was nothing I could do to protect myself against him, and he knew I knew that. He also had the power to make my life miserable while I remained in that shelter if I refused to comply when he summoned me, and he made sure I was aware that was exactly what he would do… while also trying to “sweeten the pot” by telling me he could get me extra allowance and other “perks” if I complied.

    In another group home, this one run by Catholic Charities, I was beaten after one of the residents accused me of stealing something from her. They never searched my things to determine if I actually had the item or not. Instead, the husband and wife who ran the home (getting well-paid by the state and living expense free in a beautiful house where they had their own private apartment on the 3rd floor, while the 8 girls (including me) lived on the first 2 floors and were mostly tended by staff (counselors, a cook/housekeeper, etc)), called all of us up to their living room, and had the other girls surround me, then take turns beating me with their fists, spitting on me, and when I fell to the ground, kicking me in my legs and arms.

    They then kept me locked in my room for the next week until the bruises left by the assault faded, so that no one would ask me what happened.

    These are just 2 incidents, but there were others.

    PS – one of my last foster placements was with a family where the father was a NYC cop. Among other things, he instructed me (because I was the “oldest”, being a year older than his own teen son) that if anyone were to break in while he and his wife were out and myself and their two kids (the daughter was around 12 at the time, the son 15 and me, 16) were home alone, I was to retrieve one of his guns from the parents’ bedroom, hide under the dining room table and shoot anyone coming up the stairs from the front entry.

    “Dave” made a point of telling me to shoot them in the head, and to fire more than once until I was sure they were “dead”. When I asked why I couldn’t just wound them, since I didn’t want to take anyone’s life, he told me, “You have to kill them – otherwise they can come to court and lie and try to get you in trouble, or sue us, etc.”. So, he was basically saying the only way to ensure that a person wouldn’t “lie” in court later was to execute them before they’d get the chance.

    “Dave” also told many stories about his adventures as a cop. More than one involved “jacking up” or “lighting up” a suspect they’d arrested… AFTER he was in handcuffs… and then claiming on their reports that the injuries were due to the person “resisting arrest” – thereby charging the arrested person with a second criminal act on top of beating him for no reason after he was already in custody.

    This was the mid to late 1970’s (I left foster care in 1980, shortly after turning 18). So these stories about cops abusing their power, assaulting people for no reason, victimizing children, and all the rest, are quite believable to me, as I’ve seen, heard and experienced all of that for myself.

    It’s also, sadly, nothing new.
