West Virginia Man Faces Unlicensed Dentistry and Sexual Assault Charges

Dentistry Today


Charged earlier this year with the sexual assault of a juvenile and practicing dentistry without a license, Juan Ramos Jacobe of Sterling, West Virginia, now faces 11 additional charges after a continued investigation by the Loudoun County Sherriff’s Office (LCSO) Special Victims Unit.

Ramos Jacobe was charged an additional count of assault and battery, five counts of sexual assault, and five counts of practicing unlicensed dentistry. The additional charges stem from five more victims coming forward.

Ramos Jacobe initially was arrested on March 26, 2020, after a juvenile victim told her family the suspect assaulted her while she was at his home earlier that week. She reported she was mildly sedated at the time to have dental work performed. The age of the victim was not released to help protect her identity.

An LCSO investigation determined that Ramos Jacobe was operating a makeshift dental clinic out of his home. It was determined that he had been conducting unlicensed dentistry from his home since 2016.

Ramos Jacobe continues to be held without bond at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center. LCSO detectives are concerned that there may be additional victims who have not yet come forward. Possible victims are asked to contact detective P. Roque at (703) 777-1021.
