Man sentenced to prison for sexually assaulting baby in Alicante

A MAN was sentenced to two years in prison for dragging his genitals across a baby's face in Alicante.

The incident occurred on Alonso Cano Street, where the accused, known only as Francisco Javier M.M, approached a woman and her baby and exposed himself while saying lewd phrases.

She and her 16-month-old attempted to leave the area, but were followed by the exhibitionist, who upon catching up with them, rubbed his penis across the baby's face.

The police were called and the man was arrested.

In court, the defendant claimed he had no recollection of what happened, but it was not his “usual behaviour”. He has a previous record for stealing, but not for sexual abuse.

The judge, however, found the woman’s testimony evidence enough to sentence him as she “has no reason to present these allegations apart from to reveal the truth of the events transpired.”

The court also rejected the notion to reduce his sentence as he is not “affected by a mental illness which nullifies, or significantly reduces his cognitive abilities.”

He was also not under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the incident.

Two years to reflect on his disgusting behaviour and the shame he's brought upon his family.
I hope the baby grows up with no recollection of this vile event, sadly the baby's mother won't forget.
