Molested His Daughters and Sister-In-Law
Jose Trinidad Marin is not only known for being the ex-spouse of the singer but he made news after sexually abusing his own daughters and sister-in-law.
In 1997, Jenni Rivera’s sister, Rosie Rivera confessed about Jose’s sexual assault on her and his own daughter, Chiquis. Later, it was discovered that he had molested his second daughter, Jacqie, as well.
Rivera lodged a complaint against him but he fled though he was ordered to appear before the court. Despite his fleeing, he was arrested in April 2006.
While talking with Univision, Rosie revealed how she was abused by her sister’s husband for the first time.
Chiquis and I were playing Barbies, and he came in. He asked her to go out and asked me if I wanted to play, “Let’s play love games,” and brought a quilt. He began to kiss my neck and touch where no one had touched me.
Chiquis also had a similar experience!
We were coming from the beach and when I went to the bathroom to bathe and get the sand out, he came in and placed me naked between his legs. There it happened for the first time.
A few close sources revealed that he once molested his staff in the restaurant and was fired from his job.

Chiquis and Rosie Forgave Him

I would just like to tell my father that I love him and I forgive him. He may not think that I love him, but I do.
Jose’s sister-in-law has also forgiven him!
People think that maybe I’m going to be sad or angry. God has already given me justice, I have already forgiven that man and if the judge or someone decides that he should be released from jail, it doesn’t hurt me.
