Victor Pena sentenced to 29-39 years in prison for the rape, kidnapping of Boston woman


Victor Pena was sentenced to a minimum of 29 years in prison Monday morning for kidnapping and raping a young woman in 2019.

Pena was convicted on one count of kidnapping and 10 counts of aggravated rape last week. His sentence, ruled by Judge Anthony Campo, is between 29 and 39 years.

The survivor gave a victim impact statement regarding her life since the three-day captivity in Pena’s apartment in January 2019.

“There will never be an end to the number of ways this has destroyed my life,” the woman wrote.

“After three and a half years, I wasn’t sure if this nightmare would ever end,” she wrote. “At every update there seemed to be another disruption or delay, making me feel trapped, as if I never truly escaped at all.”

The Herald is not naming the woman because the paper as a matter of policy withholds the identity of sexual assault survivors unless they request otherwise.
