An MS-13 member who stabbed two women and tried to rape a 2-year-old girl during a five-hour criminal frenzy two years ago was sentenced Wednesday to 26 years to life in prison.
Tommy Alvarado-Ventura, 33, pleaded guilty last month to a litany of charges in connection with the March 22, 2017 spree. He was arrested shortly thereafter. A Nassau County police official at the time described the case as “probably the most heinous criminal act” he’d seen in 28 years on the job.
“This defendant sexually assaulted a helpless toddler and brutally stabbed and attempted to murder two women, including the child’s mother, in a horrific and unconscionable spree of violence,” Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas said in a statement. “The depravity of this defendant knows few parallels, and he should spend the rest of his life in prison for these despicable crimes.” More

Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas: “Tommy Alvarado-Ventura is one of the most dangerous and vicious people we have ever seen in Nassau County and everyone is safer with him behind bars for life.”
How will they keep him from just wandering off and committing more crimes? Oh, wait, WALLS! Anyone suspect he will have a better standard of living in prison than he would have had back in his own native country?
