“Particularly Violent” Illegal Alien Rapist Gets 60 Years

Joaquin Orellana Torres was sentenced to 60 years in prison for a brutal rape of a young woman along the Northwest Branch Trail in Silver Spring, MD.

“This was a particularly violent rape… stranger-on-stranger. He repeatedly hit and kicked her.” Deputy State’s Attorney Laura Chase said before Judge William Simmons. “The facts in this case are egregious. The evidence is very strong – overwhelming, actually.”

That list of alleged proof includes DNA samples, a strong composite sketch, and Orellana Torres’ own confession to the crime following his arrest.

“He stuck a knife to her throat, and threatened her with bodily harm, if not death, to commit those sex acts that he wanted that day,” Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office spokesman Ramon Korionoff remarked.

Federal officials confirmed Torres, a native of El Salvador, was in the United States illegally. They are now investigating his case.

Which is a surprise since this is not the first time Torres has been involved in a sex crime while in the United States illegally.

Court records obtained by ABC7 show Orellana Torres has a history of sex crimes. In Dec. 2008, while enrolled at Albert Einstein High School in Kensington, police arrested the then 18-year-old for assaulting a female student.

“Even when I said ‘no’, he proceeded to try to unbutton my pants,” the female victim wrote in a police report.

In 2009, Orellana Torres was found guilty of Second Degree Assault. A judge later sentenced the 5’10” 150 pound teenager to two years probation and 60 hours of community service.

Apparently, second degree assault by an 18 year old isn’t enough to push federal immigration officials into action.  One wonders if Torres had gotten away with his crime, he would have also qualified for Obama’s DREAMer amnesty program like the predatory murderer of an America’s Next Top Model contestant in North Carolina.
