Illegal immigrant sentenced to life for raping, impregnating 9-year-old

The illegal immigrant convicted of raping a 9-year-old Ohio girl was sentenced to life in prison Wednesday.

Gerson Fuentes was the live-in boyfriend of the girl’s mother at the time. He entered a plea deal that would allow him to seek parole after serving 25-30 years. But should he ever get out on parole, Fuentes would likely be deported back to his home country of Guatemala.

The case made national headlines last year when the girl traveled to Indiana for an abortion. She was four days past Ohio’s six-week abortion limit when she found out she was pregnant.

Last year, the judge at Fuentes’ bond hearing said the national attention only added to the trauma.
