This defendant is a 27 year old male who is charged with one count of Rape with serious physical injury, 2 counts of 1st Degree Burglary, 2 counts of Theft and 2 counts of being a Persistent Felony Offender. The victim in this case was 91 years old at the time of this incident. She told police that on the night of June 12, 2013 the defendant knocked on her door asking to use her phone. When she said no he forced his way in and raped her, then fled on foot with $38.

After committing the rape he then broke into another home through a window and was found the next morning asleep in a child’s bed. The victim had suffered life threatening injuries from the rape. She had an exam done at the hospital and DNA of the defendant was found and lead to his arrest in this case. The defendant went to trial on this case and the jury found him guilty. They gave him a Life sentence on the Rape due to the serious physical injury, and due to him being a PFO the jury Enhanced his Burglary sentence to life on both counts also.

14 Year Old Impregnated By Her Biological Father

Welcome to American DA Live with Jack Pattie and Ray Larson. On today’s show we had guest Assistant CW Atty Andrea Mattingly-Williams and victim’s advocate Kathy High. Today’s show was about a case that most people do not like to hear about. We discussed a case where a 14 year old female was impregnated by her biological father. We talked a lot about the support this young victim had from a few organizations. They were the Children’s advocacy center and the Bikers against child abuse! To hear the whole show and more about these terrific organizations please click the link below!

On the show for Aug 1st we will be discussing a case where a 14 year old was impregnated by her biological father. Due to this horrible crime that was committed the victim and her mother made the decision to have an abortion. This case went to trial and the defendant was convicted and sentenced to a total of 17 years.

 

During the process of this case there were a few organizations that helped the victim try and cope with what had happened and try to help her move on and live a normal life. The children’s advocacy center is one and the other is the Bikers against child abuse. These two organizations really do not get as much credit as they should. We will discuss what they both do and how they work with the victims and their families in these types of cases.

Pete Ford join us on the show!  They discussed the case of CW vs. Joseph Sales, Kirby Ruano, Juan Chavarria, and Brittany Shipman.  Defendants, Joseph Sales, Juan Chavarria, and Kirby Ruano, were charged with committing the offense of Murder by unlawfully shooting Saul Perez-Ruiz, thereby causing his death with aggravating circumstances.  They forced their way into the victim’s apartment on Dinsmore Drive and started shooting.  All four of the the defendants were charged with committing the offense of Robbery First Degree when, in the course of committing theft, they used physical force upon Perez.  To sum things up, engaging in “high risk” activity greatly increases the likelihood of violent crime!
