“Thank you so much for coming forward and speaking your truth,” Judge Kiyo Matsumoto told the woman, identified only a Jane Doe 3, before ordering ex-Corrections Lt. Eugenio Perez to prison. “You were heard by the jury.”
“All I did was tell the truth,” the woman sobbed in response
Former prison guard Eugenio Perez was convicted on 23-counts, including aggravated sexual abuse and sexual abuse of a ward, on Brooklyn on Wednesday
Four separate women testified they were forced to perform oral sex on Perez in 2016 while they were in custody at Brooklyn’s notorious Metropolitan Detention Center.
It was a strange case as his weapon of destruction turned out to be a huge giveaway.
The Brooklyn jail guard’s massive, hook-shaped phallus helped the feds id him for sexually assaulting inmates, it was revealed in court on the first day of the trial.
Prosecutors said they were able to identify him as a suspect when multiple accusers described his distinctive penis.
Former Lt. Eugenio Perez, 49, was busted after the women all gave corroborating statements regarding Perez’s distinctive genitals which he introduced to his victims as the “horse”.
Federal agents procured a warrant that forced him to drop his pants.
“He wasn’t circumcised. It was big, and it was like a hook…It was humongous and it curved,” one of his victims testified during his two-week trial. Another described Perez’s penis as having a “really strong smell” that made her want to throw up.
Jurors, who were forced to look at photos of his penis, later convicted Perez on 23-counts, including aggravated sexual abuse and sexual abuse of a ward.
Perez cried Wednesday as he begged the court for leniency and maintained his innocence.
“I ask for mercy, not just for me but for my family,” Perez said through tears.
While Matsumoto declined to sentence the former officer to the maximum,
He was facing up to life behind bars, however the judge noted that she was deeply troubled by his conduct.
“These women were vulnerable and they were told by Mr. Perez more than one time, don’t report this, and if you do, no one will believe you,” the judge said before sentencing him to 25 years in prison.
As part of the sentence, he will also have to register as a sex offender.
Perez said he plans to appeal.
