Judge sentences serial rapist to civil commitment, despite split jury
Reporting Workshop | News
Juan Francisco Vega was apprehended by police while attempting to flee the scene of his last rape. Friday, 28 years later, a Judge struck down Vega’s efforts to return to the community.
The defendant, a Miami serial rapist who plead guilty to six counts of sexual battery, kidnapping and other felonies, finished his sentence in May 2011 and sat through a two week trial to determine his release, which ended with a 3-3 split jury last Friday.
