Marvin Otero, a 44-year-old Sterling resident, was sentenced to 20 years for one count of rape by Loudoun County Circuit Judge Gaylord L. Finch Jr. Wednesday, according to the Loudoun County Office of the Commonwealth's Attorney.

Otero pleaded guilty to one count of rape on Aug. 28, 2017. Finch imposed the total active sentence for the charge.

During the early morning hours of Feb. 26, 2017, the victim and Otero traveled with several other people to a club in Maryland. Around 3 a.m., the victim and Otero were dropped off at Otero's car in a parking lot in Sterling. Once inside the car, Otero threatened, strangled and repeatedly sexually assaulted the victim, according to the commonwealth's attorney's office.

After several hours, Otero allowed the victim to exit his car, at which time she called the police.

Upon his release, Otero will be placed on three years post-release supervision. He will be required to register as a sex offender per Virginia law.

Otero, an El Salvador native, may also be subject to a Federal Immigration Detainer, which would direct his removal from the United States upon his release, authorities said.


Mr. Sanford has hit the nail on the head. Enough is enough.

Concern Purcellville Resident - If we deport him now, he will be back in 2 months and on our streets.  if we work with his government to hold him, he will be back in 2 weeks and on our streets. At this way he gets the punishment he deserves despite it being at our cost.

This is what we have to deal with because Democrats refuse to deport people like this who are illegally in the country from El Salvador.

Not #MAGA.  He needs to go and never come back after his time in the slammer.

Hmmm, another non-native committing a crime, in Sterling no less.  I’m shocked!

Not may be, definitely removed from US.

Why not deport him now back to his home and work with that government to hold him in jail.
