Singer's ex-husband jailed for molesting girls
LOS ANGELES, June 21 (Reuters) The former husband of Latina pop singer Jenni Rivera was sentenced by a California court on Wednesday to a minimum of 31 years in prison for molesting two girls, including a relation.
Trinidad Marin, 43, was convicted last month of eight felony counts, including lewd acts with a child, continuous sexual abuse and aggravated sexual assault of a child, according to Deputy District Attorney Mark Burnley.
Rivera, one of regional Mexican music's few leading women, spoke during the sentencing hearing yesterday at Long Beach Superior Court, south of Los Angeles. The California native details her travails as an abused wife and single mother in her latest album, ''Mi Vida Loca'' (My Crazy Life).
