Mother of 5-Year-Old Boy Pleads Guilty to Child Abuse, Endangerment

Wednesday, August 09, 2017

 

Joseph Early, Jr.

The mother of 5-year-old Jeremiah Oliver pleaded guilty to child abuse and endangerment at Worcester Superior Court on Tuesday.

Elsa Oliver was sentenced to a total of 7 1/2 years of incarceration, 2 1/2 years each for three charges, according to Worcester County District Attorney Joseph Early, Jr.

The charges involved incidents with two of her three children.

The District Attorney also today filed a nolle prosequi on other counts Oliver had been facing regarding her third child, Jeremiah Oliver, including the kidnapping of a child, assault, and battery, permitting bodily injury to a child, and reckless endangerment of a child.

A nolle prosequi was also filed on two counts of assault and battery involving her other children for which her boyfriend, Alberto Sierra, entered a plea and was sentenced to prison last week

The Incident

Jeremiah was found one month after the defendant had been indicted for the offenses in this case.

Jeremiah Oliver was discovered missing in late 2013. His remains were found on April 18, 2014 in a suitcase off I-190 in Sterling. Jeremiah’s death was ruled a homicide by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

That investigation remains active and ongoing and is currently being investigated by the State Police Detectives assigned to the Worcester County District Attorney’s Office and Fitchburg Police.

The current charges involving the defendant and Jeremiah Oliver were ended at this time to allow the death investigation to continue and to eliminate any possible double jeopardy claim in connection with his death.
