Former Ore. guardsman gets 37 years for rape of girl, 11

BEND, ORE. — A former Oregon National Guardsman who raped a fellow guardsman’s 11-year-old daughter has been sentenced to more than 37 years in prison.

Last week, Judge Stephen Forte found 35-year-old Florentino Allen Valdez of Bend guilty of rape and sexual assault.

The Bend Bulletin reports that on Tuesday, the judge sentenced him.

Oregon’s mandatory minimum sentencing law requires 300 months — 25 years — for rape. The judge sentenced Valdez to two terms of 75 months each on sexual abuse charges. He was arrested in March 2012

Stephen Bomar, a spokesman for the Oregon Military Department, says Valdez received a general discharge from the Guard in September 2012 for reasons unrelated to the criminal case.
