Raul Barrientos Charged with Rape and Sex Assault of Severely Disabled Woman at Fullerton College
Raul Barrientos could get up to 150 years in state prison if convicted of the laundry list of charges the Orange County District Attorney's office (OCDA) has filed against him.
At today's scheduled arraignment, Deputy District Attorney Mark Birney of the Sexual Assault Unit was expected to ask that Barrientos be held in lieu of $1 million bail.
Barrientos had allegedly creeped out another woman on campus before the incident, so campus security was already looking for him when the report came in Friday about the rape.

She was approached by a man outside a restroom and was taken inside to a stall where he forced her, over her cries, to blow him before raping and digitally penetrating her.
The woman was on her period. At the time of his arrest, authorities claim, Barrientos had her blood on his hands, clothing and penis.
The OCDA statement below gives a name and number to call if you saw anything or believe you have been victimized by the accused.

MAN TO BE ARRAIGNED FOR RAPING AND SEXUALLY ASSAULTING WOMAN WITH SEVERE DISABILITIES IN MEN'S RESTROOM ON COLLEGE CAMPUS
SANTA ANA - A man was charged today with raping and sexually assaulting a woman with severe mental and physical disabilities in a men's restroom on a college campus. Raul Barrientos, 22, Anaheim, is charged with 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. If convicted, he faces a maximum sentence of 150 years to life in state prison. The People will be requesting Barrientos be held on $1 million bail at his arraignment today, Tuesday, May 3, 2011, in Department CJ-1, Central Jail, Santa Ana. The time is to be determined.
On April 29, 2011, Barrientos is accused of approaching and following a female student on the campus of Fullerton College. The uncomfortable female student reported the defendant to campus security, who began to look for him as a suspicious person on campus.
Meanwhile, Barrientos is accused of approaching a second female, 19-year-old Jane Doe, outside of a restroom on campus. Jane Doe and the defendant did not know each other. The victim takes special education classes at the school and is severely mentally and physically disabled. Jane Doe has a developmental level of a 5 to 6-year-old child, wears leg braces on both legs, and has impaired speech.
The defendant is accused of putting his arm around the victim and leading her into a stall in the men's restroom. He is accused of forcibly sexually assaulting Jane Doe as she cried including forcing the victim to orally copulate him and raping and digitally penetrating her.
Barrientos is accused of then leaving Jane Doe in the bathroom, where she was found shortly thereafter by a teacher. The defendant was contacted on campus by security, who were searching for him after the initial complaint from the first female student.
Jane Doe was menstruating at the time of the sexual assault, and Barrientos is accused of having the victim's blood on his hands, clothes, and penis.
The Fullerton Police Department investigated this case. Anyone with additional information or who thinks they have been a victim is encouraged to contact Supervising District Attorney Investigator
