SANTA ANA (CBS) — A 23-year-old man was sentenced to 30 years in prison Monday for raping a mentally and developmentally disabled 19-year-old woman at a community college last year.

Raul Barrientos of Anaheim pleaded guilty to two counts of forcible digital penetration and one count each of forcible rape, forcible oral copulation, rape and kidnapping, which are all felonies, according to Deputy District Attorney Mark Birney.

On April 29, 2011, Barrientos assaulted the woman in a men’s bathroom stall at Fullerton College. The victim is at the developmental level of a 5 to 6-year-old child, wears leg braces and has a speech impairment.

A teacher later found the victim in the bathroom.

A security guard, who was responding to another Fullerton College student about a suspicious man, found Barrientos on campus.

The victim’s parents told the judge how the attack has left her with difficulty trusting others, Birney said.

Through his attorney, Barrientos has expressed remorse to the victim and her family, according to Birney.

Barrientos must serve at least 85 percent of his sentence and register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
