COURT NEWS: Child Pornography Distributor Abraham Razook Sentenced to 20 Years in Federal Prison for Rape, Assault of Children

ARLINGTON, VA. – After months of delays in what would be an inevitable indictment for some of the most horrific series of years of depraved abuse, rape, and sexual torture of children, an Arlington man’s attorneys worked a plea deal with federal prosecutors that resulted in him being sentenced to federal prison for twenty years. The official court records show that Abraham Daniel Razook of 3900 16 Street South, Arlington, Va., committed a long series of sexual assaults on a child in Virginia and in Pennsylvania. Razook took the child to a Holiday Inn Express in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania where he raped her, sexually assaulted and videoed the gruesome attacks. Further, Razook produced the video productions which he distributed on the internet to thousands of other sexual predators.
While the death penalty is not available for the crimes committed by Razook, his sentence of twenty years in prison followed by lifetime supervised probation with restrictions that, if followed and or enforced, would virtually ensure he would never come in contact with a computer or a child.

JUDGE SET CONDITIONS WHICH ARE RIDICULOUS AND EASILY DEFEATED ONCE THIS MONSTER IS FREE FROM PRISON

ROSSIE D. ALSTON, JR.U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia


Despite the court actions described in the record to prohibit his use of computers, the reality is that Federal District Court Judge Rossie D. Alston Jr., who imposed the restrictions, has his head stuck in some pre-internet hole of obscurity and has complete and total ignorance of the availability of free Wi-Fi and free access in public libraries.
Once Razook is released from prison, he is, according to studies cited in the court proceedings, four times more likely to re-offend than those convicted of non-violent crimes. Life in prison or the death penalty is the only outcome that would protect the community from this monster.

“The defendant engaged in devastating acts of sexual exploitation against a defenseless child and produced videos of her sexual abuse for his warped gratification,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Raj Parekh for the Eastern District of Virginia. “He escalated his conduct over the course of years, from viewing and amassing child sexual abuse material to becoming an abuser himself. For his crimes against children, the defendant will now serve a significant prison sentence where he can no longer prey on the most vulnerable members of our communities.”
