CASE: Nazra Dance Bertelli (Case #20FE018193)

PROSECUTOR: Deputy District Attorney Ryan Roebuck, Special Assault & Child Abuse Unit

The Honorable Delbert Oros sentenced Nazra Dance Bertelli to 100 years in prison.  On November 15, 2023, a jury convicted Bertelli of 10 counts of forcible lewd acts upon a child.  Aggravating factors were also found true.

Bertelli sexually, physically and emotionally abused a 3-year-old child starting in 2011.  The abuse continued for years until the victim disclosed the abuse to a friend.  That friend told her mother, who notified law enforcement. Sheriff’s detectives found evidence on Bertelli’s phone including searches for pornography and photos depicting sexualized images of teen and pre-teen girls.  During trial, witnesses testified to Bertelli’s past sexual conduct.
