A jury has found Jesus Oscar Dominguez guilty of rape and kidnapping
The conviction stems from a February 2010 case in which the victim said that a stranger knocked on the door claiming to be a friend of her father. The man claimed he ran out of gas and asked to use the restroom and borrow a gas can. The Hispanic man had a gun and forced himself on the woman. DNA evidence collected from the scene matched a felony database sample from Dominguez. Katie’s Law requires DNA to be taken from anyone arrested for a felony. The law is named after Katie Sepich, a New Mexico State University student who was kidnapped, raped and killed in 2003.
