The defendant was a 39-year-old man who repeatedly raped a six-year-old girl without penetration. The Court sentenced the defendant, after finding him guilty of the charges, to three years in prison, following the applicable case law. Venezuelan case law differentiates rape crimes depending on whether there has been vaginal or anal penetration. In this case, as there was no penetration, the defendant was only sentenced to house arrest, which was located a few meters from the victim’s house.
