Colin D. Stolle, Commonwealth's Attorney for the city of Virginia Beach, announced that Omar Macera, age 30, formerly of the 900 block of Virginia Beach Boulevard in Virginia Beach, Virginia, was sentenced today by Circuit Court Judge Steven C. Frucci for Rape and Possession of Schedule I/II Drug. Judge Frucci sentenced sentenced Macera to 35 years in prison with 19 years and 5 months suspended, leaving 15 years and 7 months to serve. This sentence was the high-end of the term recommended by the Virginia State Sentencing Guidelines for the charge of Rape. Judge Frucci found Macera guilty of these charges after a trial on January 22, 2020. The Commonwealth's evidence proved that on October 14, 2018, Macera raped a juvenile known to him. A relative of the victim walked into the room and witnessed the aftermath of the assault. The victim immediately disclosed the attack to the relative. By this time, Macera was in the attached bathroom pretending to be sick. The charge of Possession of Schedule I/II Drug stems from Macera hiding a bag of cocaine in the drain of the home. While he was in jail awaiting trial, Macera called a family member and alerted her to the location of the cocaine. She called police and they came out and retrieved it.Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney Katharine D. Aicher prosecuted this case. Please contact Macie Allen if additional information is desired.
