Now former Rhode Island teacher found guilty of molesting three children he knew



Attorney General Peter Neronha announced that a Lincoln man has been found guilty in Providence County Superior Court of multiple counts of second-degree child molestation against three victims between 2016 and 2017.

On April 24, 2024, following a seven-day trial before Superior Court Justice Maureen Keough, a jury found 34-year-old Nicholas Oliveira guilty of three counts of second-degree child molestation. Additionally, Oliveira has been charged with first-degree child molestation in Connecticut. That case remains pending.

During the trial, the State proved that Oliveira sexually assaulted three girls under the age of 14, all of whom were known to him, on multiple occasions between July 2016 and December 2017.

Oliveira is a now former teacher in the Cumberland School District.

Special Assistant Attorney General Jonathan Burke of the Office of the Attorney General and Detective Richard Bousquet of the Lincoln Police Department led the investigation and prosecution of these cases.

    There are more victims of the RI school system, in Pawtucket. But appears that the area doesn’t have the resources to deal with those kinds of things because there’s too many other more dangerous things happening…
