    Suspected Marine Rapist A Decorated Veteran

    Suspected Marine Rapist A Decorated Veteran

    WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) -- The 21-year-old marine charged with the armed robbery and attempted assault of an Arlington woman on February 10th, is a decorated three year veteran. He was working as an administrative clerk at the Pentagon when he was arrested at Henderson Hall barracks late Saturday night.

    According to the Pentagon, Marine Corporal Jorge Torrez of Chicago has several awards, including a good conduct medal, a War on Terrorism Service medal, a National Defense Service medal and a Naval Unit commendation.

    Arlington County Police say Torrez matched the victim's description of the assailant and the composite drawing made by the police sketch artist.

    A statement from Marine Corps Headquarters at the Pentagon says they take the allegations against Torrez "seriously...they are inconsistent with corps values of honor, courage and commitment."

    Naval investigators are trying to see if Torrez was involved in similar crimes that may have occurred at locations where he was previously stationed. Those postings include Camp Pendleton in California, Camp Lejeune in NC, Japan and the Philippines.

    Arlington County Police say Torrez is also a suspect in the armed abduction of two other Arlington women. In this case, the young victims were tied up in their Balston home. The suspect then abducted one of the women. He beat and raped her before dropping her off in a desolate stretch of Minnieville Road in Prince William County. Torrez is expected to be arraigned on April 19th.

    Ex-Marine Jorge Torrez won't contest death penalty for murder of Navy sailor

    If he were permitted to do so, Jenkins said he would argue that life in prison is the worst possible punishment the jury could impose on Torres, who is only 25. Jenkins said it is difficult as a defense lawyer to stand aside and do nothing to defend your client, but that he has no choice.

    Torres is already serving a life sentence for multiple assaults on northern Virginia women, including the rape and abduction of a woman he strangled and left for dead.

    Jorge Torrez prosecutors seek death penalty for ex-Marine

    ...execution is the only adequate punishment for a man who not only murdered Snell but killed two girls in his Illinois hometown. Torrez is charged but has not been convicted in those slayings.

    Speechless. But the death penalty is too good for him. 60 years of solitary confinement would be better. Jmo

    This is the most recent article I could find on the two girls murder trials. The alleged perp waits for the trial to start while being housed at the Lake County Sheriff's Jail facility. He also has a federal death penalty plus 5 life sentences for other murders and sexually related crimes. His first known crimes were committed in 2005, when the pos was 16. Reminds me of Ted Bundy. No conscience, total sociopath.
