CASE: Tajmal Sharrieff (Case #17FE009227)

PROSECUTOR:  Principal Criminal Attorney Nancy Cochrane, Special Assault & Child Abuse Unit

Tajmal Sharrieff was convicted by a jury of seven counts of committing a lewd act on a child.  It was also found true that Sharrieff has a prior 1987 strike conviction for first-degree residential burglary.

In 2007 and 2008, Sharrieff repeatedly sexually assaulted a boy, who was 7 to 8 years old at the time. The victim was the son of an acquaintance who was unaware that Sharrieff had previously been convicted of rape by force of a 13-year-old girl and attempt to commit rape of a 19-year-old young woman.  The victim’s strength enabled him to discuss the details of the horrific acts that Sharrieff committed against him when he was a young boy.

Sharrieff is facing approximately 525 years to life in prison.  Sentencing is set for January 6, 2021, in Department 10 before the Honorable Ernest Sawtelle.
