Posted by Fay Arfa | Nov 02, 2017 | 0 Comments

A 32-year-old man pleaded no contest today to sexually assaulting a beauty salon worker as she closed the store last year, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced.

Enrique Orozco entered his plea to one count each of assault with the intent to commit rape, forcible rape and dissuading a witness by threat of force. He was immediately sentenced to 20 years to life in state prison.

Deputy District Attorney Nathan Bartos prosecuted the case.

On March 29, 2016, the woman was closing down the shop where she worked when Orozco, who had previously been in the salon, returned. As she attempted to get the defendant to leave, he blocked her exit and forced the store door closed. He dragged her to the back of the store and sexually assaulted her, the prosecutor said.

Case LA083137 was investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department, Robbery-Homicide Division.
