Rapist's Family Wear Insensitive Shirts At Court Hearing

Alex Francisco-Sebastion was 18 when he was arrested in 2014 for rape and robbery. At his trial last week, he pleaded guilty to charges of rape, strangulation and robbery. Yet, his family seemed to think he was the victim as they all wore shirts that said "Free Alex" inside the courtroom.

In August, Francisco-Sebastion attacked a 54-year-old woman who was walking her dogs. He pulled her into the bushes close to the street and raped her.

Four days later, he attacked a pedestrian on a bridge over I-5. He stole an iPhone but eventually was caught by police after they used the “Find My Phone” app. When the victims read their statements, Francisco-Sebastion could be seen smirking and holding back laughter. A friend of the rape victim read her statement saying:

“I am praying that over the next 22 years, you are stripped of every ounce of power and control you think you have acquired, that you will be taught both by other prisoners and by authorities how powerless you actually are, and that you will personally experience all the pain you have inflicted on others."

When Francisco-Sebastion is released, he will have to register as a sex offender. The presiding judge was not too happy about the family's shirts. He said, "His family's T-shirts are appalling. They're misguided at best, but to act like he's some kind of political prisoner in a 'Free Alex' T-shirt is totally inappropriate for today's sentencing. He's admitted to violent crimes that he committed and he's expecting an extremely long sentence and to have T-shirts asking for his freedom has no place here. I'm appalled by it."
