Ringleader in 2008 Gang Rape of Lesbian in California Gets 400+ Years in Prison

Back in 2008 we reported on the horrific carjacking and gang rape of a lesbian in Richmond, California. The victim was walking to her apartment when she was struck with a flashlight, robbed, and ordered to take her clothes off, forced into her car, driven seven blocks and then sexually assaulted. She was targeted because she is a lesbian.

SalvadorThe ringleader in this inhuman, savage attack was sentenced this week, SFGate reports:

Humberto Salvador, 36, of Richmond was found guilty in December of rape in concert, forcible oral copulation in concert, kidnapping for sexual purposes and kidnapping for the purpose of carjacking.

At a hearing Friday, Judge Susanne Fenstermacher sentenced Salvador to 411 years to life. The victim wasn't in court, but prosecutor Melissa Smith read a statement by her partner.

"She has lost the will to live," the statement read. "Although she is alive, they killed her inside."

Two of Salvador's accomplices received 31-year and 24-year sentences. A third got 13 years.

  1. Poor girl.. As someone who has been sexually assaulted and have gone through the court process of convicting my attacker, I know how she feels. I really hope she can get some help so that she may regain her will to live. Life is beautiful girl, don't let these disgusting creatures destroy you.

  2. @ LUCAS,

    thanks for being so caring and thoughtful to share your memory (painful memory) with us. Some people can't even talk about such memories.

  3. I'm sure there will be a Christopher Meloni character who will make this turd and his turdette bitches fairly unhappy once they start bragging about how they raped a lesbian.

  4. I would not be upset if this became the standard for convicted rapist. Anything less than 20 years is far too lenient.

  5. Glad he's in prison, but 400+ years is an absurd sentence by any measure.

  6. Well, at least he proved he was a man. Now he'll get to prove he's a woman.

  7. @Randy : with time off for good behavior, he might get out (if very, very lucky) when he reaches an age of 100. That is, unless some of those 400 years are served concurrently.

    Such absurdly long sentences should mean that the chances of being paroled are zero.

  8. Since the sentence did not include the provision "without the possibility of parole" that may have been the reason for the long sentence. Prisoners have to serve a certain portion of their sentence to be eligible for parole. If he must serve at least 1/3 of the sentence to be eligible for parole, he can not be considered for at least 137 years thus insuring that his sentence is basically a life sentence.
