Elementary School Girl Asked Man to Molest Her?

Olarte: Should I try a different excuse?
Olarte: Should I try a different excuse?

Israel Antonio Olarte offered what he thought was a valid explanation for sexually molesting an 11-year-old Orange County girl in April 2008:

She wanted it.

I'm not making this up.

After entering a kitchen in a house where Olarte lived with another family, he ordered the girl to drop her pants. According to court records, she complied and was molested. 

After all, Olarte--then 36--made his demand while holding a sharp knife.

Later, after being given his Miranda warning, Olarte told police that he didn't feel any remorse "because [the girl's] the one" who wanted to be molested.

You won't be surprised that Olarte was convicted.

A Santa Ana-based California Court of Appeal recently rejected Olarte's claim that his defense lawyer sucked.

His prison sentence of six years remains in effect.
