Ex-con accused of sexual assault on mentally disabled girl, to stand trial

FAIRFIELD — A 38-year-old ex-con with a lengthy local criminal record dating back 15 years was ordered Monday to stand trial on felony kidnap and child sodomy charges.

Jimmy Lavalle Jr. has pleaded not guilty.

Lavalle was arrested two weeks after a mentally disabled 13-year-old Dixon girl reported she had been grabbed by the hair, dragged into a nearby apartment complex utility room where she was raped by a knife-wielding man.

The victim told police she had been playing and riding bikes with friends near the apartment complex on the afternoon of Aug. 4, 2013, when she disappeared, according to police testimony at Lavalle’s probable cause hearing. A friend of the victim spotted the girl’s bike dumped near the utility room and found an adult who later told police he spotted Lavalle exit the utility room where the victim was found.

Judge Peter B. Foor rejected a claim by Lavalle’s defense attorney that there is no way Lavalle could know the girl was mentally disabled. Foor had just listened to a psychologist who knew the girl describe her as being measured in the lowest 1 percent of functioning ability and being obviously disabled.

Foor ordered Lavalle to return to court Sept. 2 to be arraigned on the felony charges.

While the sex charges carry a possible 16-year prison sentence, kidnapping to commit a sexual assault carries with it a life sentence.

Lavalle has been locked up since his arrest.

    There is no excuse for garbage like this guy to live, Yet sure enough, they're trying to make a case. One bullet done, and good riddance to the POS. Perfect example for starting a trend.

    "Lavalle has been locked up since his arrest." In Revolving door, Solano County????!!!! I can't believe they finally did something right. Amen to what you said CD. A bullet to the back of the head, left in a field, then done with such scum!!!! Money saved for a trial as well as years of prison costs.

    Get a rope! The difference between a rope and a bullet is that you can use the rope over and over again.

    He's locked up because he can't make bail, hopefully super high, but it's basically not because anyone did anything right except to set a high bail on jerks like this. He'll find every excuse though, to go through the courts a dozen times, like Matt's killer and also Gennels'.

    Obviously he admitted his guilt through his attorney when he stated that he couldn't tell that the girl was disable (during the sexual assault), obviously putting him at the scene of the crime.

    I need to see HD video from the utility room and apartment complex cameras which clearly shows the defendant pulling the alleged victim into the utility room before I vote to convict. And I need an accurate sexual history of the alleged victim. And please include DNA analysis in which the analyst has at least 20 years experience in the analysis of DNA samples. Just don't let the analyst try to confuse us with such minutia as 'stutter peaks' and the like. Yes, I was a juror in the recent Wade Wilson Jr. trial. Why did you ask that?
