Costa Rica News – When you have fame you can sometimes get away with murder, “no pun intended OJ”. But it seems that this Rock Star in Costa Rica got away with breaking the law by having intercourse with a minor.
According to Costa Rica’s Article 159 of the Criminal Code, the offence of having sexual intercourse with a minor between the ages 13 and 15 is between two and six years in prison.
However, Porras, member of the musical group Los Ajenos will not be going to jail, despite the prosecutor’s office requesting a 23 year prison sentence for two counts of sexual abuse and two counts of rape.
According to the indictment, the crimes occurred back in 2008 when the young girl, aged 14, was a student in the Escuela de Musica de La Sabana, where the Porras was a guitar teacher. The crime was not reported until 2011.
On Friday, the Criminal Court judge, sentenced Porras to 2 years in prison. However, given the man does not have a criminal history, he judge granted five years probation (beneficio de ejecución condicional de la pena, in Spanish), meaning he will not see the inside of a prison cell.
