    MIAMI — Arturo Ortiz-Soto, the sushi-chef rapist who terrorized South Beach women for two years, is going to prison for 40 years. The 31-year-old former chef pleaded guilty Monday to raping two women and attempting to rape two others. He will be deported to his native Guatemala when he is released from prison. ``You have irreparably changed the lives of your victims by your behavior,'' Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Ellen Sue Venzer told him. ``I do believe this sentence will sufficiently guarantee you do no more harm to our citizens.''

    A 23-year-old illegal immigrant from El Salvador who was living in Leesburg will spend the next 35 years in prison for brutally raping his 4-year-old family member. “No child anywhere in the world should ever be subjected to this sort of crime,” Judge Burke McCahill told Carlos M. Ruano just before sentencing him in a Loudoun courtroom Aug. 27. Ruano pleaded guilty March 22 to raping a victim younger than 13, a Class 2 felony. The rape occurred Nov. 29, 2009. In exchange for the guilty plea, prosecutors dropped a June 1, 2009 sodomy charge in the case, which also...

    He was loud, boisterous, complimentary and charming -- and now he's accused of rape. The man being called the Riverside Rapist, a smooth, handsome, 42-year-old, French-born TV reporter named Hugues-Denver Akassy, hit on me as I shopped at the Fifth Avenue Apple store. Akassy -- now charged with raping a tourist last week and facing lesser raps in an alleged two-year reign of terror against women on streets, in sports clubs and even on fire escapes -- was so friendly, so charismatic.

    A defense lawyer is calling for calm after death threats have been made against teenagers charged in the death of 15-year-old Phoebe Prince, who committed suicide after she was allegedly bullied by schoolmates. "Not to minimize what happened to Phoebe Prince in any way, but translating this into death threats and public harassment has got to stop," says Colin Keefe, who represents Sharon Chanon Velazquez, accused of tormenting Prince, who hanged herself on Jan. 14. "It's gotten way out of control," adds Keefe, who says Velazquez has been driven temporarily from her home.

    A rapist who was paralyzed from the neck down in a prison stabbing may still be dangerous and can be kept behind bars under a state law that allows the release of some permanently disabled inmates, a state appeals court ruled today. Although Steven Martinez is no longer capable of assaulting anyone, his past crimes and later verbal abuse of prison nurses show he is "an evil, angry and violent person" who might enlist others to commit attacks after release, said the Third District Court of Appeal in Sacramento. "Quadriplegics ... are capable of committing violent crimes," the court said...

"I wish her the best of luck," said William McCaffrey last night of Biurny Peguero Gonzalez. "Jail isn't easy." McCaffrey, 33, of The Bronx, was locked up after Gonzalez accused him of raping her at knifepoint on a Bronx street back in 2005.

    YOAKUM, Texas — With a serial rapist on the loose, Cassandra McGinty has developed a new routine when she arrives home: search room to room, a handgun or stun gun drawn. The predator has been assaulting older women in central Texas over the past year, terrifying residents and frustrating investigators who have only a vague description of the suspect. Pepper spray has been flying off the shelves in the towns where the attacks have occurred, and McGinty said her landlord in Marquez handed out stun guns as Christmas gifts.

    The state Supreme Court unanimously ruled Tuesday that arrest records of all 32 people that a Taos judge held in contempt of court at a November hearing will be expunged. Chief Justice Edward Chavez said the court would publish a formal opinion on the case, which would stress that all judges in the state should know that it's important to distinguish between crowd control and contempt proceedings. All but one of those jailed are members of Taos Pueblo. The justices came to that conclusion at the end of a hearing on the case of Taos District Judge Sam Sanchez, who...

    An atheist rapist has complained that his human rights were breached by having to share a prison cell with a Christian inmate. Barman Steven Relf, 40, was jailed indefinitely after admitting raping two women he targeted when he served them drinks in a pub. Police branded him a "sexual predator" and said he could have had as many as 40 victims. In a letter to an inmates' magazine, Relf wrote: "I recently had the displeasure of sharing a cell with a Bible-thumping believer."

That's a claim by Aurea Flynn, speaking for Vancouver Rape Relief and Women's Shelter, in the wake of a brutal sex attack this weekend on a 24-year-old woman in Vancouver's upscale West Point Grey. I spent about 20 minutes Monday talking to Flynn about rape, and agreed with nearly everything she said. Rape is about power and control, domination by a man over a woman — check. Sexual assault is so widespread that one in four Canadian women will experience it — check. Men need to speak out against violence against women,...

The film director was arrested in September after nearly 32 years in self-imposed exile from the United States following his conviction for having sex with a 13-year-old girl. "All I know is that he has been taken from prison for medical attention. I don't know where he is or when he will be returned to prison," Herve Temime told Reuters. Temime also said he visited the director in jail last week and found him depressed and tired. The move comes in the wake...

    Could it be that the conservative culture warriors who portray Hollywood as a cesspool of moral bankruptcy have been right all along? Not really. But in the case of Roman Polanski, the puritan scolds definitely have a point. Even the French government has backed off its defense of the fugitive director.... But some of Hollywood's most prominent luminaries contend that Polanski's crime--which he acknowledged in a guilty plea--really wasn't so awful. Or that maybe it was a big deal at the time, but now we should let bygones be bygones. Or that maybe it's still a big deal, but whatever...

Accused kidnapper and rapist Phillip Garrido wrote in a jailhouse letter that Jaycee Dugard's civil rights have been violated.

    All one needs to know about the case of Roman Polanski is that Woody Allen is among those who signed the Hollywood petition for releasing Polanski. In 1976, Polanski got a 13-year-old girl drunk, gave her a Quaalude and then raped her. After he pleaded guilty to the crime, Polanksi fled the country. This week, the Obama administration pushed the Swiss government to arrest him in hopes of sending him to the United States to face the music. Of course Allen sees nothing wrong with Polanksi's behavior. Allen's preference for the daughter of his girlfriend - indeed, the step-sister of...

Didn't he survive for decades having his vacation options limited, essentially, to the grim monotony of the South of France?

Her mother reported her missing at about 1:30 p.m. Cruz says the girl pointed officers to an apartment where she was taken. They arrested 26-year-old Justin Shine after a struggle.

"There was a lot of fear in the community and in the Police Department," Le Noir said. "The fear is that you don't want this to happen again. At that time there was some incredible panic in those apartment complexes. People moved out in masses. It was just an incredible time." Tuesday night, almost 13 years after the crimes, the state plans to execute 35-year-old Dale Devon Scheanette...

    Memories of an alleged kidnapping in 1978 that became universally known as the 'Mormon sex-slave case' were stirred following the appearance of Bernann McKinney on television screens and in newspapers around the world with the five pit bull puppies that were cloned from her much-loved dog Booger's frozen DNA. Reports from Seoul, explaining that Ms McKinney had paid £25,000 for the procedure to create five genetically identical replicas of her pet in the first transaction of its kind led to furious speculation about her true identity. To those who remembered the sex slave scandal, Ms McKinney's face looked familiar. The...

    This April 25 will mark the 30th Anniversary of the best-known of the many rapes that Bill Clinton committed. Most Americans are unaware of the fact that Bill Clinton, who served as their president for eight years, is a serial rapist. That is not their fault because the press spiked the story in 1999 when the Juanita Broaddrick story broke. It is just a sad coincidence that April is sexual assault prevention and awareness month. I think it might be a good idea to wear a lavender ribbon pin on this date. People will ask, "What's with the lavender ribbon?"...

    The Bill Clinton who met privately with California's superdelegates at last weekend's state convention was a far cry from the congenial former president who afterward publicly urged fellow Democrats to "chill out" over the race between his wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and Barack Obama. In fact, before his speech Clinton had one of his famous meltdowns Sunday, blasting away at former presidential contender Bill Richardson for having endorsed Obama, the media and the entire nomination process. "It was one of the worst political meetings I have ever attended," one superdelegate said. According to those at the meeting, Clinton - who...

    Had an automated telephone call at the office today (yes, I was working) to invite me and all of us, to hear former President Bill Clinton speak at Santa Ana College at the Cook Gynmasium in a rally for his wife. It starts at 8:00 a.m., doors will open at 7:00 a.m. and you can line up two hours earlier. The stadium only holds 1,000 so get there early. Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez is also going to be there, so it's a can't miss opportunity to meet the brilliant Loretta Sanchez and an impeached President, all at the same time. Santa...

    Bill Clinton Unloads on Press By Anne E. Kornblut Former president Bill Clinton lashed out in response to criticism on Wednesday from a prominent Democrat in South Carolina, accusing the Obama campaign of running a political smear campaign against him through the media. "You live for this," Clinton snapped at CNN reporter Jessica Yellin when she asked him to comment on statements by Dick Harpootlian, the former South Carolina Democratic party chairman, who said recent distortions by the Clintons are "reprehensible." Harpootlian, who backed the Clintons in the 1990s and now supports Sen. Barack Obama, had compared Clinton's distortions to...

    Former President Bill Clinton got positively riled -- as in steely-eyed -- today when pressed by a local TV reporter on the issue of lawsuits filed by Sen. Hillary Clinton's Nevada supporters to challenge the Jan. 19 Democratic "at large'' caucus locations that will serve workers on the Las Vegas strip. Many of those workers are members of the 60,000-strong Culinary Workers Union -- which has endorsed Sen. Barack Obama.

    JOHANNESBURG, Jan. 4 -- Within the Zulu culture of Jacob Zuma, the newly elected president of the African National Congress, few moments in a man's life are more celebrated than taking a wife -- even if he already has others. But news of Zuma's plans to marry a longtime girlfriend this weekend -- marking, by most counts, his sixth wedding -- sent waves of unease Friday through this polyglot nation where progressive notions of women's rights clash with deeply held convictions about respecting South Africa's varied cultural traditions. The development appeared particularly awkward for the ANC, which over nearly a...
