OC Man: 11-Year-Old Cousin Initiated Heated Sexual Affair

Matus: I'm sexy and she knew it
Convicted of horrible sex crimes, Filberto Morales Matus is presently serving a prison sentence in Ironwood State Prison at Blythe, but he believes he's incarcerated because of a mistake.

R. Clayton Seaman, Jr,, a lawyer representing Matus argues that veteran Superior Court Judge Carla M. Singer botched her instructions to jury by failing to read them a provision about how to evaluate conflicting evidence.

Guess what?

Seaman and Matus are right.

This week, a California Court of Appeal based in Santa Ana ruled that Singer failed to give the proper instructions.

But Matus isn't jumping for joy.

The justices--Richard D. Fybel, Kathleen E. O'Leary and William W. Bedsworth--also opined that the error wasn't prejudicial to the defense.

Upshot: Matus, 23, will continue to serve his 26-year prison sentence, which is probably terrific news for one of his cousins. During a 10-month period in 2006 and 2007, he repeatedly fondled, raped, sodomized and ejaculated into the minor's mouth. The unconscionable abuse ended one day when his aunt found him molesting her daughter and contacted authorities.

Wondering about Matus' trial defense?

The fifth grade girl wouldn't stop pulling down his pants and demanding sex when they were alone, he claimed.

An Orange County jury didn't buy it. They convicted him on eight felony charges and agreed with prosecutors in the District Attorney's office that he was guilty of committing an enhancement involving prolonged sexual conduct with a minor.

Listen up, dudes: It is against the law for an adult to have sex with a minor. If you think you can cleverly claim that the kid initiated the sex, that will never, ever work (unless you are a female molester). By state law, a child can't consent to sexual relations.

Unless you're a female molestor?  Is this another whiny man story?

There seems to be a pattern of child rape in the Mexican community. their tribal instincts, like picking fruit from a tree, kick in when they smell vagina. Incest is as common as salsa on pancakes.  There is no denying the truth that hispanics are direct descendants of apes. Their heads have that slant in the back and brown eyes is the norm.

Too young to consent.Absolutely agree.What is the difference from THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA Claiming child consent makes it OK,  bribing 12 year old girls with i-pads to inject them with who knows what that the package insert says doesn't really work, for a disease that may or may not be related to a different kind of cancer than the very rare one that it doesn't protect from. . . THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA claims child consent is OK THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA bribes children with I-pads to obtain child consent.Parent's be damned,THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA Doesn't have to tell 'em!Vaccines are considered UNINSURABLE risk.That means when those little girls are hurt with those shots parents know nothing about, The makers of those shots will be off the hook, and you and me and THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA  are on it!WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?BOTH are wrong.Why isn't THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA Right there in prison with him?

I hope Matus'  IRRESISTIBLE sexual attraction CONTINUES to be irresistible once he gets to State Prison. I'm sure they're lining-up as we speak in order to pull down his pants for a quickie as soon as he gets there. Except in THIS case the ejaculations will be coming (pun intended) in the OPPOSITE direction! 

Open W-I-D-E Matus; payback's a biatch!

I think I'm seeing a pattern here-- Anglo pervs target people through social networks -- Mexicans keep it in the family.

There should be a special prison for garbage like this...the kind they have in Mexico, where you fight the rats for your food and you shower once a month...other than that? Should be the death penalty for raping children. End of story.

Child molestors don't fare well in the prison system.  By now, this pervert has been adopted by some big "Bubba" and is getting a taste (excuse the pun) of his own medicine.

You hope that rapists in prison get to commit more crimes and further develop their violent tendencies.  Good thinking there, champ.

 Yea, he's a real winner, wonder how many times HIS mouth will be used for the same purposes in prison...let's hope they throw a party for his mouth.

The picture you see above is a picture of HUMAN GARBAGE and should be disposed of as such.

You know how it goes, grasp at any grain that appears to reinforce their prejudices, ignore all evidence that contradicts.

You're opposed to sexual abuse so you're advocating sexual abuse?   You want to provide an opportunity for the worst offenders in prison to have fun by raping someone?  I don't think that's very clear thinking.

These guys are sequestered. I understand that they're too scummy for even the average loser in prison and don't last long in general population.
