    FL - Angel Mariscal, HIV+, for sex abuse, child porn, Miami Beach, 2002

    A man who ran an international child pornography business out of a Miami Beach hotel room knew he was HIV positive when he videotaped himself having sex with children in Cuba and Ecuador, federal prosecutors said in recent court papers.

    In light of this, Assistant U.S. Attorney Barbara Martinez Wright is seeking a 100-year sentence for Angel Rafael Mariscal, 45, at his hearing on Friday.

    Wright said in court papers that Mariscal, of Ecuador, exploited more than 120 children, most of them girls between the ages of 7 and 17. A sampling of the more than 300 tapes and CD-ROMs seized during the investigation show Mariscal having sex with at least 10 girls, some apparently younger than 12.

    The court papers did not say whether any of the girls contracted HIV, and the U.S. Attorney's Office in Miami had no comment. Federal authorities have said they were able to identify some of the victims with help from government officials in Cuba and Ecuador.

    i haven't read the link yet, but that's attempted murder. and the citizens of florida will have to pay big bucks for all his medical treatment while he's a guest of the state...this is a huge problem in our jails and prisons, all over the country in fact. the costs of AIDS, hepatitis, pregnancies,etc. etc. , and an increasingly elderly prison population are enormous.

    From September 2004:

    http://articles.sun-sentinel.com/200...-judge-victims

    Finding his crimes against children were extraordinarily "heinous, brutal, cruel and degrading," a federal judge on Friday sentenced a child pornographer who sexually exploited more than 120 impoverished young girls to 100 years in federal prison.

    Angel Rafael Mariscal, 45, who has been HIV-positive since 1994, begged for leniency. "Please don't let me die in prison," he said...

    Prosecutors Barbara Martinez Wright and David Szuchman said the trial was the culmination of an investigation that identified 300 of Mariscal's U.S. customers, and led to 107 search warrants, 44 arrests, 26 convictions and three suicides. Four people were prosecuted in Cuba and one in Ecuador.
