July 24, 2013

A DJ who is accused of secretly videotaping and photographing unconscious women as he sexually assaulted them in Fairfax County, has been charged with a similar crime in Arlington, officials said.

On Monday, Arlington authorities charged Joseph Rivera, 34, with aggravated sexual battery in connection with an incident on Dec. 26, 2010, in which Rivera allegedly sexually assaulted and photographed an unconscious victim in her car at an unknown location in Clarendon between 2 and 2:30 a.m.

Police arrested Rivera on July 16 in Las Vegas on charges of rape, aggravated sexual battery and animate sexual object penetration and two counts of unlawful filming in Fairfax County during 2011 and 2012, officials and court documents said. Arlington police said Rivera awaits extradition to Virginia to face charges.
