Walhalla, SC - An Oconee County jury deliberated for slightly more than 30 minutes before convicting Jaimie Sabio Obregon, 71, of Seneca, SC of Criminal Sexual Conduct with a Minor. The Honorable Thomas L. Hughston, Jr. sentenced Obregon to 25 years for each of two counts of Criminal Sexual Conduct with a Minor 1st Degree and 20 years for each of two counts of Criminal Sexual Conduct with a Minor 2nd Degree. All sentences are to be served concurrently. Obregon will be required to register as a sex offender. The State was represented by Assistant Solicitor Catherine Wyse.

 

 In April of 2014, the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office received a report that an eleven year old female had reported at school that she had been sexually abused. The child stated that the defendant sexually abused her several times over the course of a year when the defendant was babysitting her. Following a thorough investigation, Obregon was arrested.  

 

Solicitor David Wagner stated, “The crimes this defendant committed are among the most heinous acts that our society sees today. This sentence ensures that the defendant will likely spend the rest of his life in prison.”
