Judge sets trial date for accused rapist

FAIRFIELD — An October trial date was set Monday for an ex-con accused of attacking a pair of prostitutes last year at a North Texas Street motel.

Adrian Lorenzana faces a dozen felony charges that include rape and assault. He has pleaded not guilty.

Lorenzana is suspected of driving up to a woman in the parking lot of the Solano Lodge motel on the night of July 27, 2013, and inviting her to a party in Rancho Solano, where cocaine was going to be served. She refused and went to her room, according to testimony at Lorenzana’s probable cause hearing in March.

Lorenzana is suspected of going to her room with a knife, forcing his way into the room and raping her twice before leaving.

Authorities suspect that Lorenzana picked up another prostitute the night of Oct. 19, 2013, pulled a knife on her and choked her until she passed out – again at the Solano Lodge. When she came to, Lorenzana was grunting and pulling off her clothes, according to police testimony at the March hearing.

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 sample on file with authorities.

Judge Peter B. Foor on Monday set a jury trial to start Oct. 7. Lorenzana remains in custody.

    Bit off track here, but it is crazy to me how open prostitution is on that part of town. Could have sworn that was illegal....

    B, yeah it's illegal. When I become mayor I'm going to petition for a permit to make it legal then put it next door to my marijuana dispensary downtown on West Texas Street. $Cha-ching!$ The city limits will be a zero tolerance zone!

    Sounds like ''The Solano Lodge'' is a crime magnet and the whack-a-mole crime sledge hammer needs to land squarely there if the porker pigs can pry themselves away from the Parkway Gardens apartments.
