Thanks to the Lincoln Police Department and Nebraska State Crime Lab investigators, a violent rapist and illegal alien will be sent to prison for 36 to 40 years, and then deported; however, he was able to commit the same crime against innocent Americans twice.
Jaime Villasenor, 34, “raped a 22-year-old woman who was walking home from downtown Lincoln in November 2006,” according to an article in the Lincoln Journal Star on Tuesday. He then raped a 33-year-old cab driver just two months later. Both times, he held the women at knifepoint to silence them.
Villasenor was arrested for the second assault and did face a rape charge…, at first. Court documents reveal that doubt was cast upon the victim’s story, and the charge was dropped two months later, even though the suspect was an illegal alien.
“Immigration officials subsequently took Villasenor into custody for illegally re-entering the U.S. after being deported in September 2006,” court documents said. After he was sentenced to 46 months in federal prison, he was deported for the second time in July 2010.
Villasenor snuck back into the U.S., yet again, and was arrested in Texas two years later, documents reveal.
In 2015, Nebraska prosecutors used DNA evidence to connect Villasenor to the rapes, and he was charged with two counts of first-degree sexual assault, to which he plead “no contest” this week. Both charges carry a maximum prison sentence of 20 years.
The victims had “long thought the violent sexual assaults may go unpunished,” Deputy Lancaster County Attorney Chris Turner said at his sentencing Tuesday.
Upon completion of his sentence, Villasenor will again be returned to Mexico, according to the rapist’s court-appointed attorney, Jim Hoppe.
“Immediately after his sentencing, Villasenor told Hoppe he wanted to appeal,” the Lincoln Journal Star reported.
