Trial date nears for singer's ex-husband
Crime: Marin stands accused of sexually abusing Rivera's daughter, sister.

By Wendy Thomas Russell, Staff writer

LONG BEACH - After climbing to success as a Latin American recording artist, Jenni Rivera will revisit her turbulent past this month when her ex-husband faces a criminal trial in Long Beach Superior Court for allegedly molesting the singer's daughter and sister.

Rivera, a Long Beach native who was named Female Mexican Regional Artist at a Latin awards show in Miami two months ago, is expected to be called as a witness in the case of Trinidad Marin, 43, the father of her three oldest children.

Marin, who is free on $1 million bail, is charged with nine felonies - including counts of child rape, continuous sexual abuse of a child and aggravated sexual assault of a child under the age of 14. If convicted, he could be sentenced to life in prison. 

For years, Rivera has publicly discussed her abusive relationship with Marin - he was convicted of battery in 1993 - and has since used the experience to help fuel her singing career. She has offered up edgy songs in Spanish and English and has developed a rebellious persona based largely on her unflinching portrayal of her own life. Her new album, Mi Vida Loca, features a cover version of Gloria Gaynor's female-empowerment anthem "I Will Survive."

Although Rivera is unrecognized by most visitors at the Long Beach Courthouse, the case has nonetheless caused a stir among the Spanish-language TV networks - namely Paparazzi TV and Escandalo TV, which have documented the case since its inception.

Despite a gag order issued at the behest of Marin's attorney, Rivera has not been shy to comment on the case. On Wednesday, as she walked out of the courthouse in oversized sunglasses and heavy makeup, the cameras swooped in to request interviews with her and members of her family, many of whom are also in the music industry. They obliged.

"Now that he's arrested, it's hard to go back and relive everything and go to court when you're a public figure," Rivera told Guidelive.com earlier this month. "Your records are public records. But, at the same time, I can't say I regret it because I got the best gift that life and God could give me, which are my children from that relationship."

Marin, known as "Trino," was charged with sexual abuse in 1997 after his daughter and sister-in-law reported that they had been victimized over several years in the early 1990s, both before and after his split from Rivera.

But before he could be interviewed by police, Marin left town and - despite repeated efforts to find him over the years - managed to elude capture.

As the charges remained in effect, Marin was considered a fugitive until 1997, when Riverside police, apparently acting on a tip, arrested him at his home there.

The charges stem from a series of incidents that allegedly took place between about 1988 and 1997, mostly at residences in Long Beach. His sister-in-law was 7 when the alleged abuse began; his daughter was 8.

The Press-Telegram's policy is not to release the names of alleged victims of sexual assault.

According to the transcripts of a preliminary hearing held last year, both girls experienced the abuse - which consisted mostly of fondling - more frequently when Marin was fighting with his wife.

The victims, who are now in their 20s, said they opted to keep the molestation quiet for years because Marin had threatened to harm other family members if they told.

Finally, in 1997, the sister-in-law said, she realized she didn't have to remain silent any longer.

"There was a story about another girl being molested by an adult, and I remember my brother defending the girl and believing her immediately," she recalled from the witness stand. "So I said, `If they believe her, then they'll for sure believe me, and they'll defend me, and they'll protect me."'

Rivera's daughter with Marin was 12 years old at the time. She testified that she refused to turn her father in because he threatened to send her to Mexico to live with his mother - a prospect that terrified her.

"Also," she testified, "I was afraid that my mom would get very angry and possibly, I don't know ... I felt that she would probably kill him or something, and she would go to jail, and he would be dead. I didn't know where I was going to be. I was just afraid."

Earlier this year, a hallway scuffle between the Riveras and Marins led Long Beach Courthouse bailiffs to heighten security in the case. At Marin's hearing last week, the families remained on opposite sides of the courtroom, were released from court separately, and had no contact.

Judge Joan Comparet-Cassani, who will preside over the weeklong trial, prohibited the sides from interacting until the end of the case.

"I understand your feelings and your pain," she said, "but it's now in the process of the criminal justice system."

In a last effort to avoid trial, Marin's attorney, Richard Poland, requested a dismissal of the case Wednesday on the grounds that his client had been denied his right to a speedy trial. Long Beach police, Poland argued, did too little to find his client during the last nine years.

Comparet-Cassani denied the motion.

"The defendant also never asserted his right to a speedy trial all these years, did he?" she asked, smiling.

While the details of Marin's defense are unclear, Poland has indicated that he intends to argue that the allegations were manufactured by Rivera.

"It's the defense position that the entire case is brought to revive a rather mediocre singing career by the mother of one of the victims," Poland said at the preliminary hearing. "That this whole case is an attempt to garner and create some sort of publicity."

The trial is set to begin April 30.

Arguments end in sexual abuse trial


Trinidad Marin accused of abuse of daughter, sister-in-law.

By Wendy Thomas Russell, Staff writer

Marin, the 43-year-old ex-husband of Latina singer Jenni Rivera, claims that the girls made up the abuse in 1997 and then reported it to Long Beach police as part of a "publicity stunt" for his ex-wife.

"What can be worse than being a child molester?" Marin's attorney, Richard Poland, asked the jury in his closing argument. "Maybe it's being falsely accused as a child molester."

Marin was charged in 1997 with nine felonies - including counts of a lewd act with a child under the age of 14, aggravated sexual assault and continuous sexual abuse of a child. He disappeared from Long Beach before he could be arrested, however, and was considered a fugitive from justice until his capture last year.

The case has ignited a flurry of media coverage among Spanish-language TV and radio stations, and has been responsible for at least two emotional clashes in the hallways of Long Beach Superior Court. The most recent occurred Tuesday, after jurors had begun their delibrations, when family members of Marin and Rivera exchanged verbal barbs as they exited the courtroom.  More than a dozen bailiffs were called to the third floor to disperse the angry crowd.

In his own closing argument, Deputy District Attorney Mark Burnley assured jurors that Marin was a predator and highly deserving of the stigma attached to child molestation.

"This case is such a textbook example of what a sexual molestation case is all about," Burnley said.

Not only did Marin make sure to abuse his daughter and sister-in-law in private places - bedrooms, bathrooms and a car, for example - but he took advantage of his "repeated access" to them as a family member and preyed on their sexual inexperience and embarrassment, Burnley said.

The victims "were easy targets," he said, and it took them years to summon the courage necessary to report the crimes.

Free on $1 million bail, Marin is accused of abusing the girls in the late 1980s and early 1990s, both before and after his split from Rivera. His sister-in-law was 7 when the alleged abuse began. His daughter was 8. If convicted, he could face a sentence of life in prison.

Poland focused many of his remarks Tuesday on inconsistencies in the victims' testimony. Some of the stories they told to police in 1997, he said, were not the same stories they told during the trial 10 years later - even when the stories involved traumatic events.

"The details are what makes the truth," he argued.

Also, he questioned the daughter's accusation that she was abused while sleeping in between her two siblings on several occasions. He said he didn't believe that the other two children could sleep through such a thing.

"If you put this in a movie," he said, "people would walk out. It's not reasonable."

But Burnley said the victims were telling the truth about their experiences, and that any inconsistencies were minor and understandable given their age at the time and the passage of more than a decade.

"The girls grew up," Burnley said. "Their memories evolved over time. So, of course, there's going to be differences in their story.

"We are human beings," he added. "We are not androids. I cannot stress that enough."

While the case primarily comes down to the word of the two victims, there were other witnesses who testified for the prosecution during the weeklong trial.

A childhood friend of the sister-in-law said she had been told of the abuse but promised not to tell anyone else, and didn't. And a doctor testified that she had examined Marin's daughter when she was 12 years old and found that her vagina appeared to have been penetrated on multiple occasions.

Still, Poland suggested that it was Rivera's influence on the victims that brought the case to the police and, ultimately, to trial.

Back in 1997, he said, Rivera was just starting out in the music business - following in the footsteps of her father, Pedro Rivera, a producer of Mexican banda-style music. Perhaps, Poland suggested, she hoped to jump-start her career with a salacious criminal case against her ex-husband.

Since then Rivera, a Long Beach native, has released a number of albums and was named Female Mexican Regional Artist of the Year at a Latin awards show in Miami three months ago.

"Jenni Rivera was selling cassettes on Atlantic (Avenue) and Market (Street) when this whole thing started," Poland said. Now, "she's a very successful recording artist."

Jurors will continue their deliberations today in the courtroom of Judge Joan Comparet-Cassani.
