Young rape victim undergoes HIV treatment (*ILLEGAL ALIEN ALERT*)
Press-Register ^ | 9/21/2006 | MIKE PERRY

Posted on 09/22/2006 11:16:45 AM PDT by steel_resolve

A 5-year-old girl is undergoing treatment for possible HIV infection after the man charged with raping her -- an illegal alien who was previously deported to Mexico -- admitted he has the virus, authorities said.

The case has re-energized some state lawmakers to push for tougher penalties for people who commit sex crimes and knowingly expose their victims to HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

Julio Cesar Cruz Martinez, 32, of Fairhope is being held in a segregated unit at the Baldwin County Corrections Center on charges of first-degree rape, sexual abuse and sodomy, a jail official said Wednesday.

Police said Martinez has confessed to some of the acts involving the girl and to knowing he had HIV before the crime reportedly occurred Sept. 13.

Officers notified the family immediately after Martinez disclosed his infection, sheriff's spokesman Lt. John Murphy said.

"The child has been taken to medical services, where she has been tested and is being given treatment to reduce the risk of the HIV virus," Murphy said Wednesday.

HIV is a virus that destroys the body's ability to fight off illness and is the cause of AIDS. People infected with the virus do not have AIDS until they develop serious symptoms, but they are capable of transmitting the virus through sexual intercourse, according to the AIDS.org Web site.

Martinez has undergone HIV testing at the corrections center to confirm whether he has the virus, Murphy said. The lab results are pending and may not be released publicly, he said.

Deputies had questioned Martinez's identity, since he did not provide valid identification.

Temple Black, spokesman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said Wednesday that Martinez is an illegal alien who has been deported to Mexico at least once. The department placed an administrative hold on Martinez -- requiring him to remain jailed -- after identifying him by photo and fingerprints, Temple said.

If convicted of the rape and other charges, Martinez would serve his sentence in the U.S. before being returned to Mexico, he said.

Baldwin County District Attorney Judy Newcomb said this week that her office was looking into whether Martinez should face additional charges for knowing he had the virus when he allegedly raped the girl.

Newcomb said such crimes typically fall under assault or endangerment statutes, and she doubted that Alabama had a statute to enhance charges against someone who knowingly exposed another to HIV or AIDS.

Many U.S. states have laws making it a separate crime for someone to knowingly expose someone to the virus during a criminal act. But no such legislation exists in Alabama, a researcher with the Secretary of State's office confirmed Wednesday.

State Sen. Bradley Byrne, R-Montrose, said he agrees Alabama needs laws that would make it a crime for someone to knowingly expose another to the virus while committing a crime, particularly in cases involving children. Byrne said he plans to push for tougher laws in the next legislative session.

State Public Health Officer Don Williamson said Alabama needs tougher laws to criminalize known HIV exposure, but lawmakers should be careful not to dissuade people from getting tested for the disease.

"The known exposure of another party by somebody who is HIV infected, without warning them or taking precautions, is immoral and reprehensible. We need to figure a way to deal with that," Williamson said.

Lawmakers should be careful to create rehabilitative options for drug addicts and others at high risk to HIV infection, so that get-tough laws don't discourage them from getting tested, he said.

"For some people, ignorance of the law is an excuse," Williamson said. "If they never find out they are infected then they can't be charged with knowingly exposing somebody."

Wrong. Put him out in the yard and let the normal cons have at him. He'll get the death penalty he deserves.

Dear God. FIVE YEARS OLD AND RAPED!?!

I have a five year old daughter. My husband would be in prison right now for murdering an illegal alien. And I would be an accomplice.

There's no mention of a fine of jail time for his employers.

Must be an editing error.

if he has been a failure on this so have many previous presidents, including the do nothing president who allowed terrorist to blow up a ship and try to bring down the Towers..( the Cartoon).

I am heartily sick of the total lack of leadership in all areas of our country's business...( religion..business...etc)..

of course, we still have this prayer in school thing, and the flag buring thing.....all such totally important issues....../sarcasm/

Why isn't the girl undergoing the incredible reconstructive surgery from the rape? Is she just expected to heal on her own?

This guy ought to be tortured.

I totally agree with what you say. I think we should start a fax campaign and just start faxing all stories like this to the White House and the RNC, heck to the DNC too.

So this slime will spend X years in prison, then he'll be deported AGAIN to Mexico and what, what on earth, will keep him from illegally returning yet again?

I wouldn't convict if I were on a jury either.

I wish we had a legal defense of "Innocent by reason of that person deserved to die".

They should segregate him from the world with a single .45 slug to the back of the head, then dump him in a landfill and cover him over with a ton of garbage.

I don't think he came to the US to watch soccer games.

He came here to work; at a job that an American or legal immigrant would do if it paid more.

Ya, and if Martinez had escaped back to Mexico and "the Dog" went after him -- guess who would be in trouble?

If anybody deserved to be beheaded and left in the street, its this guy.

If the House bill doesn't get through the Senate, there very well may be some incumbents who lose their seats and guys like Chafee and DeWine need to be looking over their shoulder.

Sources: Cop Killer is Illegal Immigrant

Juan Leonardo Quintero, 32, has been jailed without bond after being charged with capital murder in the death of decorated Houston Police Officer Rodney Johnson.
By Tracee Evans
Friday, September 22, 2006
Quintero is scheduled to make his first court appearance Monday before Judge Joan Campbell. Johnson, 40, was pronounced dead Thursday night at Ben Taub Hospital after being shot multiple times with a 9mm handgun, according to prosecutors.

The shooting occurred around 5:30 p.m. following a routine traffic stop on Braniff Street near Hobby Airport. Johnson had just handcuffed Quintero and put him in the back of a patrol car. According to prosecutors, Quintero pulled a gun from his waistband and started firing, hitting Johnson several times.

Meantime, local law enforcement sources tell KTRH News that Quintero is in the U.S. illegally and has an extensive criminal history. KTRH News has learned Quintero was charged with indecency with a child in 1998 and driving while intoxicated in 1995.

Officials say as many a three individuals who had been in Quintero's truck fled the scene. The suspect was still in the patrol car when other officers arrived in response to Johnson's distress call. Shell casings and the gun were recovered from the back seat, according to court papers.

Johnson's widow, Joslyn, is also on the force. They have five children.

The 100 Club is issuing the family a check for $10,000 to help with immediate expenses. Club Executive Director Rick Hartley says the organization will help the family financially as well as provide college tuition assistance for all five Johnson children.

To make a donation to help the Johnson family, see www.the100club.org.

Yet another of the many thousands of examples of El Presidente's "family values don't stop at the Rio Grande" pals. I really do hope there is a special dark corner of hell reserved for George W. Bush and all the degenerate treasonous Republicans (not to mention Dhimmicrats) who support this utter abomination. They are utter filth.

when the president of the U.S. will not stop the illegal immigration problem, this happens, he is just as responsible ast he person who did the rape. There is a lot of blood on his hands, but there is a lot of blood and wrong doing on the hands of each and every past president who has not sucessfully solved this problem.

Not to mention the congress and senate.

Most Americans see what's happening to our country, yet the traitors in Washiington ignore their constituents, undoubtedly preferring to dance to the tune of the globalist $$$.

If we had a real American President, this wouldn't be happening.

Kill him! But giving the kid AZT will also kill her. HIV is a harmless passenger retrovirus. It does not cause HIV, and certainly no tranmissable retrovirus can cause some 40 diffrent disease states that occur normally without HIV. If you seek AZT or anti-retroviral treatment because you have an HIV infection, you're crazy. Period!
