You can imagine Raul Barrientos telling a lady, “Look into my bedroom eyes, liebchen, and I will take you places you've never been before.”
But the Anaheim 22-year-old has a pre-trial hearing scheduled this morning tied to something more disgusting than that line: raping a
young woman with severe mental and developmental disabilities in a Fullerton
Barrientos, who is being held in lieu of $1 million bail, entered a not guilty plea
Oct. 19 to 11 felony counts related to this incident:
A man approached a 19-year-old woman who takes special education classes at Fullerton
College and led her into a campus restroom stall. She has the developmental level of a 5 to 6-year-old child, wears
braces on both legs, and has impaired speech. Over her cries, he forced her to blow him before raping and
digitally penetrating her. She was on her period, and her blood was on his hands, clothing and penis.
After the incident was reported to campus security, Barrientos was suspected because he had allegedly creeped out another woman on campus before
the incident. After a Fullerton Police investigation (I know …), he was arrested.
Here are the charges filed by the Orange County District Attorney's office: one felony count each of kidnapping to commit a sexual offense, forcible rape, rape of an incompetent person, forcible oral copulation, oral copulation of an incompetent person, four felony counts of sexual penetration by foreign object by force, and sentencing enhancements for kidnapping likely to cause serious harm.
Conviction on all of those counts could send Barrientos and his bedroom eyes away to state prison for 150 years.
