Man Steals A Virgin Mary Painting. To Pay For An Abortion. For The Girl He Raped.
This is one of those stories that involves so many layers of nastiness that it sort of resembles a rotten onion. In 2006, a Nebraskan dude named Aurelio Vallerillo-Sanchez raped a 14-year-old girl. When he found out that the young girl was pregnant, he realized he was in deep trouble and was very likely going to get caught. So he asked his son to serve as a look-out while he stole a 300-year-old portrait of the Virgin Mary worth about $100K from Omaha’s St. Cecilia Cathedral. He then grabbed the girl he’d raped and fled with her to Mexico, where he sold the painting for $3K and took the girl to an abortion clinic. When he discovered an abortion wasn’t an option, he kept the girl there until she gave birth and forced her to give it up for adoption. Luckily, this horrible guy got caught, and plead no contest to the charges of first-degree sexual assault and theft. Hopefully, when he’s sentenced this week, he’ll get the full 70 years. [Fox News]
