HIV-infected Child Pornographer Gets 100 Years

CATHERINE WILSON

Associated Press


MIAMI
- An HIV-infected child pornographer was sentenced Friday to 100 years in prison for recording his sex acts with at least 120 children as young as 7 in Cuba and Ecuador and distributing videotapes and CDs to at least 300 U.S. customers.

U.S. District Judge Cecilia Altonaga, who heard the trial of Angel Rafael Mariscal without a jury, borrowed from the remarks of another judge when she said the crimes were so morally reprehensible "that it gravitates at or near the bottom rung of human behavior."

After Mariscal's arrest at a Miami Beach hotel, the Ecuadorean national "rather defiantly told me, 'You'll never find the victims,'" former U.S. Postal Service lead investigator Elizabeth Bendel testified.

He was proved wrong. The Cuban government cooperated with U.S. investigators and tracked down nine victims using nonpornographic still images lifted from the porn tapes and disks. Cuba prosecuted three women and a man who helped recruit girls and boys for the illicit productions. Ecuador identified three victims.

At sentencing, the judge watched excerpts from about 10 tapes as a pediatrician with expertise in child abuse estimated from their sexual development that eight victims were under age 12 and 13 more were under 16. Mariscal, 45, did not watch the tapes and busied himself writing notes.

"It was difficult to watch," she said, adding it was hard to keep from leaving the courtroom. Noting the girls were poor and paid off with offers of a bicycle, clothing or small amounts of cash, the judge said, "These are vulnerable victims, by any stretch of the imagination."

She took pains during the trial and sentencing hearing to make sure the pornographic images were not publicly disclosed. But she mentioned expressions of pain or discomfort on the faces of some of the young girls during intercourse and use of a dog collar and leash on victims.

"You saw so many victims that it is difficult to count," prosecutor David Szuchman said. "When he went to these countries and abused these poor kids, he knew he was HIV positive."

Mariscal allowed customers to order custom videos made to their specifications for as much as $975 per film, investigators said. The judge said he was able to "perfect the business" as actor, producer and distributor by preying on poor children on his regular travels to foreign countries.

With federal sentencing rules in legal flux, Altonaga sentenced him three different ways and came up with the same 100-year result each time, agreeing with prosecutors that the crimes were "heinous, brutal, cruel and degrading."

Mariscal spoke at length as he asked for something short of a life sentence, saying he doesn't have long to live because he tested positive for HIV in 1994. He said he became a sex addict after coming to the United States in 1980 and blamed easy access to porn in New York's Times Square.

"I am not a freak of nature. I'm just an average guy," he said. "Addiction to pornography is not something society is willing to accept."

After two years away from pornography, he said he knows how damaging his addiction was.

"When I was engaged in sexual activity with these girls, I really thought I was somehow helping them," he said. "I knew it was illegal. I didn't think it was wrong."

But he denied sexually penetrating "the younger victims" and insisted he did not intend to infect the children with HIV. None of the 12 children who have been tracked down tested positive for HIV in their initial exams, which Mariscal said proves that his use of soap and water, mouthwash and in some cases gloves was effective in preventing transmission.

But Szuchman said the victims now face a lifetime of fear and HIV testing.

Investigators believe Mariscal was in the child porn business for 10 years. Agents tracked Mariscal to a storage facility, where they uncovered 500 videotapes, customer lists of 300 people and photo equipment. With the huge volume of porn in hand, federal agents set up a mail-order sting and filled fresh orders.

The probe evolved into Operation Lost Innocence, which so far has resulted in 107 search warrants served, 44 arrests, 26 convictions and three suicides. Defendants include police officers, teachers, a fire department lieutenant, a college professor, school custodian and school bus driver.

Defense attorney David Hodge, who plans to appeal, acknowledged: "It's a horrible crime. It's a sad crime."

Or hanged, drawn and quartered. Before all that, to be put on a rack which is turned by the children he abused. Then two savage rats to be put on him.

Oops, I'm getting quite graphic now. Better stop while I'm ahead.

That bastard deserves to die.

How could anyone be against the death penalty after hearing that?

Death in this case would be too good and too easy an escape. They ought to make sure he is taken care of, healthy and lives a long life, in jail. Maybe he'll meet a few Bubbas.... that's a much better sentence than getting out of it so easily by being killed. :hmmm:

It's terrible, I know. I seem to get the same reaction to this horrifying news story wherever I go. He certainly won't live anywhere close to 100 years.

Screw death. Slow insanity from solitary is what's needed. Damn moral conscience, damn compassion - bring back the old "eye-for-an-eye" mentality.

What a self deluded piece of trash. It's pretty pathetic to see him rationalize. But I'm against the death penalty. I'm sure "bubba" and friends will be sure to accomodate him for years to come.

Or we could cut a diffrent body part off each month? Maybe he'll get the point eventually.

Child molesters don't last very long in prison - period. Even the worst of the worst criminals have a line they draw when it comes to morals and child molesting.

So he will not live long will he???
Well in that case I hope his last days are not too comfortable and hope I am not considered to be going overboard by suggesting a slow acting type of acid or similar be injected into his joints to make his remaining time a little bit more painful.
Another point is that in the current climate it is considered cruel and barbaric to test drugs on animals, well why not use this type of criminal to test them on?.
The death sentence is too good for them.

I saw this episode of The Twilight Zone or Outer Limits or something where this criminal in the future was strapped down to a table and plugged into a virtual reality machine (kinda like the Matrix) and the doctors would load a different program everyday where a murderer was after him and at the end of the day the murderer shot him and he actually felt the pain. Then suddenly he would be in another scenario going through it all over again like Ground Hog Day and the cycle just kept repeating and he was stuck in that virtual reality suffering the same crime that he committed. This would be appropriate for this case.

I can't beleive that they finally caught this guy. Back in 1994, my friends and I met Angel Rafael Mariscal at his Miami Beach residence (75th and Abbott). He asked us if we would like to model in bikini's and make some cash. We were 12 & 13 years old at the time and were crazy out of control teens so we did it. When we were changing in his bathroom, I found a hidden camera in between a stack of porn magazines. I freaked out and could not beleive what was going on. I wanted to run out crying but my friends at the time begged me to stay and so I did. We then exited the bathroom and entered his bedroom where he had cameras set up and lights, looked like a set of a movie. We were all very shy at first and very uncomfortable but he would calm us down by giving us marijuana. After we were all high, we would then model for him in our bikini's.

The next day we arrived at his house, he offered us more money if we would model topless. Keep in mind that we were children at this point and did not have much breasts!!! However, we did it and he would give us lots of money and drugs. Then he asked if we would do it completely nude! I remember that I ran into the bathroom to put my shirt on and my friend followed me into the bathroom and convinced me to do it. We started doing it daily, and we were always at his house, eating, smoking, and modeling. He was not a mean person. He was actually a very nice, easy to get along with guy who did not force anything on us (ofcourse now that I am grown up I realize he is a sick pervert fuck).

I remember a time that Angel took us to a sleezy hotel somewhere in N. Miami Beach (163rd area) and had sex with my 13 y/o friend in front of me. I was a virgin at the time and I would sit on the bed while he had intercourse with my friend and he liked to look at me. Afterwards, he took us to the 163rd Street Mall and took us on a shopping spree. All of this happened over the summer of 1994.

One day we showed up at his house and he told us that he was leaving. He said that the cops were on to him and that he burned all of our pictures and video tapes, which I do not beleive. I never saw any of my pictures or film. He disappeared and we never heard from him again. Detectives showed up at my house and asked me all types of questions. My mom did not know that I was doing 'Nude' modeling so ofcourse I lied to the cops and told them that we all were doing bikini modeling only. There were 7 of us, we were all friends from middle school. I wonder if our pictures or tapes were included in this trial? We are all grown up now and have tried to put this behind us and move on in our lives. I am happy to know that this pervert has finally been caught and I'm sure that Justice will be served.

What stumps me though, in the article it states that investigators tried to find all of his victims. They most certainly did not!!! They only looked in Cuba and Equador. Why didn't they look in the U.S. Why didn't they look in Miami Beach, where he lived?

Hang in there oldschool305 and forensicexaminer. I believe the board will not let you private message until you have made 5 posts here. Perhaps a Mod can help facilitate your correspondence. Good luck.
