Nazario Enrique Cruz-Sanchez
A Santa Ana man whose girlfriend watched as he raped her 9-year-old niece and who had sex with a separate live-in girlfriend's 12-year-old relative, was recently sentenced to 70 years to life in state prison.

Jurors on April 23 found 43-year-old Cruz-Sanchez guilty of two counts each of having sex with a child younger than 10, oral sex with a child younger than 10, sexual penetration of a child younger than 10 and lewd acts with a child younger than 14, while also finding true sentencing enhancements for multiple victims. Estela Garcia, the girlfriend who watched, cut a deal to exchange a guilty plea for a 20-year prison sentence.

Nazario Enrique Cruz-Sanchez Guilty of Sex Crimes with Girls Ages 9 and 12

Cruz-Sanchez told the 12-year-old not to tell his then-live-in girlfriend about the molestation that happened in 2006-2007 because it could jeopardize her pregnancy. The 9-year-old, who was victimized in 2010-12, was exposed to pornography and Garcia and Cruz-Sanchez having sex in front of her.

Garcia told investigators Cruz-Sanchez claimed because she was not a virgin when they got together, his Jehovah's Witness faith required him to have sex with her niece. Garcia claimed she feared he would leave her and cut off financial support if she did not convince the 9-year-old to perform sex acts on Cruz-Sanchez. Garcia said she initially lied to investigators about her involvement in the sex abuse because she feared deportation and losing custody of her children.

This  Garcia character needs to face the judge too.  To claim she convinced the 9 year old to have sex with the dude because she feared he would leave her and cut off financial support is criminal.

70 years, hell yes!! That is excellent. Bastard. Jehovas Witness can't celebrate a birthday or a holiday, but they can do this to a child if their baby's mama wasn't a virgin? Wtf. Human waste. I'm cool with a 27-stab wound suicide, yes, I am. Strength and love to the little girl, she has a long hard road ahead of her. If his 27 wound suicide happens soon enough, she should get a portion of the money we'll save on housing this human vulture. 70 years! Awesome.

Not to worry, child molesters (288) get killed rather quickly.

This "man" should be put down and the "woman" who facilitated his rape of her niece should also meet the same fate. And this view is coming from someone who is a longtime advocate for prisoners's rights and critic of the many injustices within our legal system. There is no excuse for his and her behaviors and for the continued cycle of abuse they have helped perpetuate.

What's that? He woke up with 27 stab wounds one morning during role call? Worst case of suicide I've ever heard of..

Most state prisons in the United States allow convicted child rapists the option of serving their time in general prison population or administrative segregation. Child sex offenders who choose the risk of being housed in the general inmate population must sign a legal waiver of liability provided by correctional staff.

What the F is wrong with people!!!!! He needs to have his crimes tattooed on his body for all of his fellow inmates to know! That would lead to true justice!

Not the first time I know of regarding Jehovah's Witness's molesting/raping within the family. If you report or leave the family, they shun you. Some messed up ideals.

When a dog scars a child for life, it is put down. Why does the same not go for child molesters?

A child predator that actually received significant jail time for their vile acts. Let's hope this becomes a trend.

You do realize that the virgin thing was a BS story he MADE UP to con his stupid helper, right? The JW's have some crazy beliefs, but they don't preach institutional child-rape.

@lisamfletcher seems like he was using some twisted ideas on marriage to get in the sack with this girl. a predator is a predator no matter what faith they ascribe to, they are twisted in their thinking to manipulate others into committing their heinous acts
