FBI: Truck Driver Gets 25-Years for Sexually Assaulting Minors During a U.S. Cross Country Trip

Jason Leonard Valdivia, 28, of Sweetwater, Tennessee, was sentenced today to serve 300-months in federal prison for transporting a minor in interstate commerce for the purpose of engaging in criminal sexual activity with the minor.

Following his imprisonment, Valdivia will be supervised by the U.S. Probation Office for 15-years and will be required to register with the state sex offender registry in any state in which he lives, works, or attends school.

The investigation began in August 2018 after a minor reported that Valdivia had sexually assaulted the minor during a cross-country trip in the summer of 2018.  When confronted, Valdivia admitted that he had engaged in sexual acts with two minors during the trip.  Subsequent investigation revealed that Valdivia sexually assaulted the minors in his truck in June 2018 during a trip from Tennessee to Nevada and back.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew T. Morris represented the United States in court.
