Bethlehem Man Sentenced for Raping 11-Year-Old

Hector Otmo gets 5 1/2 to 15 years for December 2009 attack.

A Bethlehem man was sentenced to no less than 5 1/2 years in prison by a Northampton County judge for raping an 11-year-old girl in 2009, according to this Morning Call report.

The report says Hector Otmo, 25, apparently badmouthed the victim to his pre-sentence evaluators, saying the sex was consensual and the girl had provoked it. Judge Anthony Beltrami said he was offended by those comments.

If he was so offended why did he only give him 5 &1/2 years? Just think how offended the poor 11 yeard old is. Will she be OK in 5 & 1/2 years. What a crock this is.

Just by way of clarification, 5 1/2 was the minimum sentence. The maximum is 15 years, as it says in the sub-head.
