According to court records, the victim came forward in December and told police she had been raped over and over during a five-month period in 2001, beginning when she was 17 years old. She said she didn't report the rape until late last year, when she learned Bravo had been released from jail following a prior conviction.
In April 2011, Bravo was sentenced to one year in the Cache County jail on reduced charges of attempted sexual abuse for using his position of trust to take advantage of "a vulnerable woman who came to him for help," according to prosecutors.
Bravo was granted an early release in October 2011 and ordered to seek treatment, according to court records.
That same month, Logan police were contacted by an out-of-state police agency and told about a second victim.
Bravo was arrested again in December and charged with five counts each of rape, object rape and forcible sodomy. Twelve of the counts were dismissed as part of a plea deal
For more than 30 years, Bravo served as an advocate for the immigrant community and was the director of the Multicultural Center of Cache Valley.
