Karma is a rape victim!

Anti-American activist Tony Yapias — director of Proyecto Latino de Utah, an advocacy group for illegal aliens, and prominent Hillary Clinton supporter — has been charged with (wait for it!) first-degree rape in Utah.

What makes this a headline story is his attacks on GOP nominee Donald Trump for characterizing some Mexicans as rapists and murderers. Now Yapias finds himself in the slammer, facing charges of rape as well as misdemeanor tampering with evidence.

CBS Salt Lake City affiliate KUTV has the details:

According to charging documents, Adolfo Tony Yapias-Delgado, went to the home of a woman he had a four-year relationship with, 10 days after the alleged victim terminated the relationship, and had sex with her without her consent. He was was charged Monday in 3rd District Court.


Texts were recovered by investigators, according to the document, that showed the alleged victim “expressed strongly and repeatedly” that the relationship was over and she didn’t want anything to do with Yapias.

On March 21, he went to her home against her wishes. The documents quote the victim’s last texts to the defendant: “I said no. Don’t you get it.”

Yapias is said to have responded in three texts.

“No I don’t get it,” followed by “I’ll be there and then “I’m here.”

The victim in this ultimate crime of violence against women was, not surprisingly, an illegal immigrant who reported the sexual assault to authorities despite her immigration status.

She was examined by a forensic nurse and was found, according to the documents, to have multiple physical injuries consistent with her explanation of events.

Working with police, she also texted Yapias about the events of March 21, seeking an apology. He apologized for erasing the texts and, investigators said, “acknowledged that the victim told him ‘no’ multiple times and she did not want to have sex.”

When the case goes to court, the victim is advised to seek an attorney other than the one-time public defender who was brutal in her cross-examination of a 12-year-old rape victim in order to lighten her client’s sentence. It is unlikely that that attorney is available in any case since she is currently running for president. Her name is Hillary Clinton.
