NY couple sentenced for MySpace rape

Stripper Duo Get Prison For MySpace Rape:

I originally posted about Julio Rojas and Sophie Soto here and here.

They’re the New York couple who lured some underage girls over MySpace, got them drunk, raped them, and then forced them to strip at a New York nightclub.

They had plead guilty to the charges against them and were recently sentenced. Rojas only got 8 years in the state pen and Sot got two to six. These are laughable sentences for the crimes they committed against these girls.

Still no word on where the girls’ parents were.

Husband and wife MySpace rapists plead guilty

Queens strippers guilty of using two underage girls in romps:

I originally posted about Julio Rojas and Sophie Soto here. The pair have pleaded guilty to seducing teens through MySpace, getting them liquored up, having orgies with them, and making them strip in a Manhattan night club.

Apparently the New York DA’s office is into giving weak pleas because Rojas is only looking at 8 years and Soto is looking at 6.

Thanks to Gothamist.

NY husband and wife MySpace rapists indicted

Queens couple used 2 Internet teen girls for sex, prosecutors say:

22-year-old Sophie Soto and her husband, 31-year-old Julio Rojas, have been arrested for an assortment of charges. I’ll let the article explain the travesties they’ve committed…

The sordid saga began in late 2006, when Sophie Soto, 22, used the MySpace social networking site to contact one of the girls, prosecutors said Monday in a statement. Soto told the girl that she was an 18-year-old virgin who had sexual relations with girls and was planning to have sex with a boy but was nervous and wanted the girl to be with her, they said.

The girl wrote back to Soto and said she would be there and would take a friend along, and their relationship developed through telephone and Internet instant-message conversations, prosecutors said.

When the girls showed up at Soto’s Queens apartment in January 2007, she liquored them up and took them into a bedroom, where she sexually abused them before her husband, Julio Rojas, 31, had sexual intercourse with all three, District Attorney Richard Brown said.

Later that night, the couple took the girls, who were under 15 but were given fake identification cards, to a Manhattan strip club, where Soto and an exotic dancer dragged them on stage, slipped their clothes off and made them have oral sex with patrons, the district attorney said.

Together the pair face a 56-count indictment including charges of rape, sexual abuse, and using a child in a sexual performance.

While the ultimate responsibility for these crimes ultimately lays with the multiple rapist scumbags that did this to these poor girls it still has to be asked.

Where in the hell were these girls’ parents?

Why aren’t the attorneys general looking into that?
