Rapist gets 24-year, 8-month sentence

A 28-YEAR-OLD Westminster man was sentenced to 24 years and eight months in state prison for rape and impersonating a police officer.

A 28-year-old Westminster man was sentenced to 24 years and eight months in state prison this week for the 2015 rape of an Anaheim woman.

According to the Orange County District Attorney, Raul Antonio Ramos received his sentence on Wednesday after pleading guilty to one felony count each of forcible rape, rape by threat to arrest, forcible oral copulation and impersonating a peace officer.

Authorities say the incident took place on Dec. 11, 2015 when he was working as a security guard in Santa Ana. He solicited a 19-year-old woman – referred to as a human trafficking victim – to commercial sex at a Ramada Inn hotel room.

There, according to the OCDA, Ramos showed the victim his security guard badge, telling her he was a police officer and that he’d arrest her if she didn’t had sex with him. He then raped the woman, using a video camera to record the incident.

Then, he forced the woman to orally copulate him, but the victim, clad in a towel, grabbed his keys and camera and ran out of the hotel room to a nearby store to summon help and the police. Ramos was arrested by Anaheim police.
