Illegal Alien Rapist gets Jail Time!

New Haven, CT – On Thursday, Superior Court Judge David Gold sentenced Jose Angel Moreno-Hernandez, 29, to 80 years in prison for repeatedly raping and beating a woman who offered to drive him home. The victim was a co-worker at a local restaurant.
In October, Moreno-Hernandez was convicted of five counts of first-degree sexual assault, first-degree kidnapping, attempted murder and first-degree assault.
The crime occurred on March 27, 2009.
The victim testified that once in the car, her attacker propositioned her. When she refused his advances, he forced her out of the car near a park and dragged her by the hair into the woods. He then began raping her…he would do so several more times before the ordeal ended.
During the assault, Moreno-Hernandez stomped up and down on his victim, twisted her neck and repeatedly punched her with a closed fist, according to court documents.
The brutality only ended once the woman pretended to be dead.
Once Moreno-Hernandez fled the scene, the victim staggered out the woods and managed to find help. The beating left her basically blind as her eyes were swollen shut.
She told the courtroom: “He looked me in my eyes, laughed, shrugged and said he was sorry as I cried and begged for my life.”
“Everything would go white as he beat me, and if I didn’t get up fast enough, I would get pulled up by my hair, only to be raped or beaten again,” she said. “The only way I can begin to describe his demeanor during the attacks is to say I saw and felt nothing less than pure evil.”
She said Moreno-Hernandez “killed the woman that was in those woods. I now live in pain and fear constantly.”
Before the sentence was handed-down, the victim’s mother testified to her daughter’s injuries, saying: “Her face was completely covered in blood, her eyes swollen shut, but she tried to turn her head to me.”
“She told me, ‘Mama, I fought hard and he hurt me badly. I wouldn’t let him kill me, Mama. I just wanted to see your face again.’”
In addition to her ongoing physical injuries, the woman now suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and anxiety. She told the judge that she now sleeps with a hammer under her pillow.
Throughout Thursday’s proceedings, the illegal alien showed no emotion and simply sat listening to the Spanish translation of his victim’s testimony through headphones. Though, he did tell the judge: “I don’t know what happened.”
Moreno-Hernandez’ defense attorney, Tejas Bhatt asked the judge for a more lenient sentence, saying: “We ask that you give him one more chance, to breathe fresh air.”
However, Judge Gold was not moved and told Moreno-Hernandez: “This is truly among the most savage and sadistic crimes I have ever seen. Your crimes reflect a level of depravity that borders on the barbaric and inhumane.”
Moreno-Hernandez who is in the country illegally from Mexico will not be eligible for parole until 2079 and will more than likely die in prison.
