    Desperate Times...

    OMAHA, Neb. A Nebraska man who stole a painting of the Virgin Mary to finance an abortion for a teen he raped has been convicted of first-degree sexual assault and felony theft.</span>

    Aurelio Vallerillo-Sanchez, 39, of Omaha pleaded no contest to the charges Friday and faces up to 70 years in prison when sentenced in October, Douglas County prosecutor Brenda Beadle said Saturday.

    A call to the county public defender representing Vallerillo-Sanchez wasn't answered Saturday.

    Beadle said Vallerillo-Sanchez fled to Mexico with the 300-year-old painting worth $100,000 and the pregnant teen in March 2007.

    &quot;The plan was that when they got to Mexico, she was to undergo an abortion,&quot; she said.

    When an abortion wasn't possible, Vallerillo-Sanchez pushed to have the baby given up for adoption, Beadle said: &quot;He wanted to do everything he could to get rid of this baby 'cause it was evidence against him.&quot;

    The teen returned to Nebraska after giving birth, the prosecutor said.

    Vallerillo-Sanchez was arrested in February after DNA linked him to the September 2006 assault of the then-14-year-old girl.

    His children gave police information about the theft during the investigation into the sexual assault. His son told police he served as a lookout as his father stole the painting from St. Cecilia Cathedral in Omaha. Vallerillo-Sanchez sold the painting for $3,000 in Mexico, his daughter told police.

    Vallerillo-Sanchez has been linked to at least four other thefts in the Omaha area, but charges were not filed as part of a plea deal, Beadle said.


    Stealing a picture of the virgin Mary to pay for an abortion - the irony must have been lost on this guy.
    aka ChurchDude. I want that moniker back! Until then....
