On the other hand, Mollie’s family showed visible relief as judge Joel gave Cristhian a life sentence.
According to prosecutor Scott Brown, the Tibbetts family were “pleased” with the court’s decision. But, he also added, “The family and others live with it forever”.
Judge Joel showed sympathy to the victim’s side. He remarked to Rivera “the harm to the victim and the victim’s family, your need for rehabilitation and the necessity for protecting the community from further offences by you and others.”

On July 18, 2018, 20 years old Mollie Tibbetts went out for a jog around 10 pm in the evening. But, she never returned back to her home and was reported missing the following day.
After months of investigation, the officers finally found a clue as they spotted Christian on the CCTV footage. He was seen approaching Mollie during her run.
They interrogated the farmworker on the whereabouts of the day. Eventually, Rivera admitted to chasing Tibbetts, blacking out, and putting her in his vehicle’s trunk.
Rivera also led the police to Iowa cornfield, where they retrieved Mollie’s dead body. The horrific incident sparked a national outcry with even the then-president Donald Trump stating “should have never happened”.
