Police: Rape suspect who was freed from jail due to pandemic kills accuser

Associated Press

 

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — Police in Virginia say that a rape suspect released from jail in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic went on to kill the woman who had accused him.

The Washington Post reports that Ibrahim E. Bouaichi was tracked down by authorities on Wednesday. But he shot himself and was in grave condition on Thursday.

Bouaichi was indicted last year on charges that included rape, strangulation and abduction. He was jailed without bond in Alexandria.

The woman testified against him in Alexandria District Court in December.

When the pandemic hit, Bouaichi’s lawyers argued that he should be freed awaiting trial because the virus endangered both inmates and their attorneys. He was released on $25,000 bond over the objections of a prosecutor.

Circuit Court Judge Nolan Dawkins released Bouaichi on the condition that he only leave his Maryland home to meet with his lawyers or pretrial services officials.

Alexandria police say that Bouaichi, 33, fatally shot the woman in late July.

Authorities said that federal marshals and Alexandria police spotted and pursued Bouaichi in Prince George’s County on Wednesday. He crashed his vehicle and apparently shot himself, authorities said.

Judge Dawkins retired in June. He did not respond to The Washington Post’s request for comment. Judges are often prohibited from commenting on pending cases.

Bouaichi’s attorneys, Manuel Leiva and Frank Salvato, said in a statement that they were “certainly saddened by the tragedy both families have suffered here.” The lawyers said they “were looking forward to trial. Unfortunately the pandemic continued the trial date by several months and we didn’t get the chance to put forth our case.”

Police said the woman was a native of Venezuela and did not have family in this country. The Washington Post reported that very little information about her was available. The Associated Press does not identify persons who may have been sexually assaulted.

Really? Both families suffered? Sounds like only the woman (and her family) who was raped, strangled and abducted and then brutally murdered felt any suffering. These 2 attorneys should feel the same pain as this woman and then let's see if they think the perpetrator felt any suffering.

People in prison will take care of him.

Woman killers are treated less kindly. Ask Whitey Bulger.

They all have blood on their hands. They are 100% responsible for her death. The fact they let a rapist out of jail is ridiculous. Who gives a fuck if a rapist gets covid.

Alright, so the woman does the right thing and testifies.  The system fails her and people expect rape victims to continue to come forward? Believe all women, right? Until it comes to criminals then believe and set them free!

Its OK guys, we all know that if he were released because of a no bail law that he would not have gone out and committed and even worse crime.

 

Fuck lefties. Theyre a goddamn cancer to society. Progressives? More like regressives.

Judge should be charged and his attorneys should be disbarred. But of course nothing will happen other than wishing they all get ball cancer.

On a positive note, we're going to end up with a flood of sweet vigilante movies like the 1970s

Why can they just wear masks in jail? Why let them back on the streets?

No they won’t ...this isn’t like the movies or back in 80s and 90s ...today nobody gives a shit and no inmate takes the risk of injuring or killing another inmate ...unless you’re a high profile child rapist/killer , unfortunately, nothing will happen

Because this is the lengths they're going through to get as much mandatory mail in voting as possible, poor girl, so sad.

Here's what should happen, execute the lawyers, judge and whoever else that was involved in letting that POS out of prison. They have innocent blood on their hands and yet in America in 2020 "................".

Godfuckingdamn! smh!

Why on earth would someone vote you down for this?

Regarding his lawyers... that's their job. To represent the clients best as possible. I blame the judge but not the lawyers. that's our system.

Some defense attorneys do their job with good intentions.  A lot do it for the money and are huge pieces of shit.  This guy’s lawyers fall in the second category.

Because some people in this board are fucking snowflakes and I'm an asshole I guess for saying what most of us felt??
