OAKLEY — Jennifer S. Decarlo, a 34-year-old resident of Oakley, is in custody for allegedly sexually molesting teenage boys. Decarlo is being held in lieu of $1,160,000 bond, pending a court hearing on August 10.
Decarlo was identified as a suspect after the Oakley Police Department received a report involving lewd and lascivious acts with a boy. Detectives conducted several interviews and executed search warrants.
Multiple victims were identified, and several items of evidence were collected and analyzed. The investigation revealed multiple lewd acts occurred involving the first reported victim.
Additional male victims ages 13 to 16 were later identified.
Decarlo apparently met victims through family, friends, or acquaintances. Her alleged crimes occurred between January and March this year.
Her arrest in May was announced on July 14, after a case against her was presented to the Contra Costa District Attorney’s Office. A total of 21 charges were subsequently filed against Decarlo, including multiple counts of the same charges.

Unlawful intercourse with a minor
Oral copulation with a minor
Lewd act with a child
Arranging to meet a minor for the purpose of a lewd act
