Man pleads not guilty to attacking, raping prostitutes

By From page A3 | November 01, 2013

FAIRFIELD — A 28-year old ex-con pleaded not guilty Thursday to multiple felony charges relating to attacks and rapes of two prostitutes along North Texas Street.

Police arrested Adrian Lorenzana on Wednesday morning. He was booked into the jail, with bail set at $480,000.

In addition to several sexual assault charges, Lorenzana faces charges of assault with a deadly weapon. Both victims suffered knife wounds during the attacks.

Judge Peter B. Foor ordered Lorenzana to return to court Nov. 12 for a probable cause hearing.

The attacks occurred July 27 and Oct. 19, according to court records.

Lorenzana is on federal parole after completing a nine-year prison sentence for the 2006 abduction at gunpoint of a Fairfield women. The woman had obtained a restraining order against Lorenzana, but agreed to go grocery shopping with him the next day. The next time the woman’s family heard from her was when she called weeks later from Mexico, saying she had been taken at gunpoint and was staying at the home of Lorenzana’s grandparents.

She safely returned to Fairfield and FBI agents arrested Lorenzana, then 20, who faced a possible life sentence, but ended up taking a plea deal.

A condition for being released from prison on parole is giving authorities a DNA sample.

    Why waste the court's time by getting a restraining order, only to turn right around the next day and go grocery shopping with the person you want restrained?!?! IMO, the lady should have been brought up on charges for wasting the courts time and resources, along with the police for having to track her down in Mexico.
