Michael O'Keefe, District Attorney

Cape and Islands — District Attorney Michael O’Keefe announced today that on May 17, 2017, after a three day trial, a Nantucket jury found Jorge Adames-Garcia (DOB: 8-6-84) guilty of kidnapping and two counts of aggravated rape.   Sentencing was continued to June 5th.

    Judge Kathe Tuttman sentenced Adames-Garcia to 15-18 years state prison with ten years probation following the committed sentence.

    The charges stem from an incident in 2013 on Nantucket where the defendant forced the victim into his car and then sexually assaulted her for hours at two different locations before leaving her on the side of the road.

    District Attorney Michael O’Keefe said, “The sentence was appropriate in light of the facts found by the jury. This was a horrendous ordeal for this victim to have endured and I commend her courage for coming forward.”

    The case was investigated by the Nantucket Police Department.

    The case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Daniel Higgins.
