Carlos Delfin Maes - Repeat Sex Offender - Gets 32 years

A registered sex offender who was already on supervised parole has been sentenced to 32 years in prison for kidnapping and sexually assaulting a woman he met on a telephone chat line, prosecutors said.

Carlos Delfin Maes, 32, of Denver, was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty in the case in March, according to a media release from the Jefferson County District Attorney's Office.

Maes, who was a registered sex offender, conversed with a 36-year-old Arvada woman on Livelinks in July of 2009, prosecutors said.

The pair talked for a while and Maes asked to meet the woman. She told him to call back, which he did, and they agreed to meet at a Wheat Ridge restaurant near West 45th Avenue and Kipling Street.

The two talked for a while outside the business before Maes "physically picked the woman up and forced her into his truck," the district attorney's office said.

Maes drove to a nearby apartment complex, dragged the victim behind trees and "sexually assaulted her."

Maes was on "intensive supervision parole" at the time he assaulted the Wheat Ridge woman, the DA's office said, for raping a 14-year-old girl in Denver in 2005.

On March 30, Maes pleaded guilty to kidnapping and attempted sexual assault in a plea agreement in the Wheat Ridge case.

Jefferson County District Judge Stephen Munsinger sentenced Maes to the maximum term - 32 years.
