Twin Sentenced To Life


Twin sentenced to life for sexual assault

A man who tried to blame his identical twin brother for the rape of a nine-year-old girl has been sentenced to life in prison.  Jurors yesterday took less that an hour to agree on the maximum sentence for the aggravated sexual assault and kidnapping charges.

DNA tests had pointed to both brothers.  However, jurors got to see a videotaped statement to police that showed Aldo Rene Penaflor using body motions to describe how he raped the girl in the back of a car.  Penaflor says he was "manipulated and coerced into a confession" by Houston police.
