Illegal Immigrants Sentenced for Child Rape
Two men have been sentenced to consecutive life sentences for the kidnapping and rape a 12 year old girl. On February 5, 2009 the young victim was standing at her Florida bus stop when Juan Hernandez-Monzalvo and Richard Morales-Marin kidnapped her at knife point and raped her.
During their trial, both men tried to blame each other for the crime, but in the end a jury found them both guilty. While in court for sentencing Hernandez-Monzalvo was extremely emotional as an interpreter read his letter to the judge, where he pleaded for mercy and asked to be with his family.
Morales-Marin was forced to face court alone. He had no supporters and even smirked while being sentenced. The brutal rape of the 12 year old girl early last year was no laughing matter for Circuit Judge Walter Komanski.
“I am making a recommendation to the Department of Corrections that at the conclusion of the service of your portion of the sentence, at such point that you die, that the recommendation is for the Department of Corrections that they transport your body to the immigration and naturalization service for deportation back to your own country,” said Judge Komanski. “That neither of you are worthy to be buried in this country.”
Hernandez-Monzalvo and Morales-Marin have 30 days to appeal their sentences.
Good luck in prison guys. They say what goes around, comes around… and a child rapist… well?
