Charles Martinez Receives 20-Year Sentence for Heinous Rape of 9-Year-Old

A father of three will serve 20 years in prison, and will be eligible for parole in fifteen years.  32-year-old, Charles Martinez was sentenced today by Justice Ricardo O’Neil Sandcroft following a guilty verdict handed down on November 15 this year.  Martinez was tried for rape after he forced a 9-year-old child to perform oral sex on him in 2019.  Reports say that the child was in a house with her siblings when all of them went out, and left her with her cousin who was in the shower.  The child was watching television alone when Martinez dragged her from the living room to a bathroom outside the house, and forced the child to perform oral sex on him.  Once the heinous act was over, Martinez threatened to kill the child if she said anything.  At that moment, however, one of the child’s cousin walked in and witnessed the ordeal.  That cousin and the victim both testified in court, and in rendering his judgment, Justice Ricardo O’Neil Sandcroft said he found the witnesses’ statements to be credible.  In court today, Justice Sandcroft opined that Martinez showed no remorse, and that based on the evidence provided in the trial, Martinez had violated the child more than once.
