Orange County Man Charged with Rape in Spiritual Cleansing Scheme

Posted By Los Angeles Criminal Defense Attorney || 26-Apr-2012

Alberto Ramirez was arrested on charges of rape and making criminal threats after allegedly raping a woman in what started as a spiritual cleansing.

Ramirez allegedly met the victim on a social networking site. He told her that he could help bring her children from Mexico to the United States by performing a spiritual cleansing ceremony that involved a raw egg.

When the first cleanse didn't work, Ramirez said a second cleanse was needed, and that the woman would need to take her clothes off. The victim then stripped down to her underwear. During the cleansing, Ramirez allegedly jumped on the bed, grabbed her and choked her. The victim tried to fight, but he told her to stop or he would kill her.

If you, or someone you know has been charged with criminal threats, rape, sexual assault or any other type of crime, it is essential to hire an aggressive Los Angeles criminal lawyer who will fight for your rights.
