Re-Sentencing scheduled in 2008 Chico rape case

Jan 16, 2014 5:57 PM

A convicted rapist will have a re-sentencing next week.

Butte College student Alexander Solis was convicted of three counts of raping his girlfriend in 2008.

He was sentenced to 20 years in prison, a sentence his mother found cruel and unjust.

Now she's on a mission to see her son set free.

She said her confusion lies in the fact that she saw what she thought was a healthy relationship two days before her son was arrested.

“Here is a boy that has no priors, raised in a small town, was in what I could see a loving relationship with his girlfriend…” Solis said.

Testimony from the victim and a previous girlfriend of Solis' claim he was violent, abusive, and controlling.

Next week’s re-sentencing will be next Tuesday at 8:30 at the Butte County Courthouse.

Butte County District Attorney Mike Ramsey tells Action News Now that at best, Solis will only have his sentence reduced by three years for this "brutal, serial rape."
