Hey Richie,
I was just browsing through the libs and you might be able to solve this using:

abstract SortedSet<String>     getGroupNamesForUser(String userName)
Returns a collection of the names of the groups that the user belongs to.

OR

abstract SortedSet<Group>     getGroupsForUser(String userName)
Returns a collection of Group objects that the user belongs to.

From: https://developer.atlassian.com/static/javadoc/jira/4.4.1/reference/com/atlassian/jira/user/util/UserUtil.html

That is, if you are willing to pull the username from the reporter instead of its ID.

I hope that helps. Didn't really work with the API beyond the REST interface myself yet.

Regards,
Philipp
