This week jurors in Unalaska are hearing the trial of a man accused of sexually assaulting a 51-year-old woman.

Jorge E. Rivera is charged with two counts attempted sexual assault, two counts of sexual assault, assault, and criminal trespass.

The State of Alaska alleges that in March 2016, Rivera entered the bedroom of a woman and proceeded to touch her without consent and against her requests that he stop.

When officers interviewed Rivera, he said he did not remember entering the woman’s room and said, “if they said I did it, I must have.”
