FAIRFIELD — A Fairfield ex-con was ordered Monday to stand trial on 12 felony rape, assault and other charges for a pair of attacks on prostitutes at a North Texas Street hotel.

Adrian Lorenzana drove up to a woman in the parking lot of the Solano Lodge motel on the evening of July 27, 2013, and invited her to a party in Rancho Solano where cocaine was going to be served. She declined his invitation and went to her room, according to testimony at Lorenzana’s probable cause hearing.

There was a knock on her motel room door a few minutes later. She opened the door and Lorenzana was standing there, allegedly holding a knife. He said, “Let’s do this,” and forced himself into her room, according to testimony at the hearing. After allegedly raping her, she tried to flee. He grabbed her, they tumbled to the ground and he sliced her thumb with the knife, according to hearing testimony. Lorenzana gave her a towel for the bleeding and then allegedly raped her again before leaving.

Nearly three months later, on the night of Oct. 19, Lorenzana picked up a prostitute and gave her a ride to the Solano Lodge. Once in her room, he allegedly pulled a knife, blurted out “You are going to do this,” and then choked her until she passed out. When she came to, Lorenzana was grunting and pulling off her clothes, according to police testimony.

Lorenzana had been on federal parole after completing a nine-year prison sentence for the 2006 abduction at gunpoint of a Fairfield women. Lorenzana was arrested after a DNA sample from a sexual assault exam matched his DNA sampled on file with authorities.

Judge Dwight Ely ordered Lorenzana to return to court April 7 for the setting of a date for a jury trial. He remains in jail with bail set at $480,000.

    Good lord! More evidence of the ineffective laws and punishments for violent sex crimes against women which devalue the lives of victims and do little or nothing to prevent recidivism. Maximum sentence, PLEASE!
