Colombia's 'Big Bad Wolf' sentenced to 60 years for raping 274 children

by Adriaan Alsema February 13, 2019

“Big Bad Wolf,” one of Colombia’s most active serial rapists in history, was sentenced to 60 years in prison on Wednesday for raping at least 274 children between 2007 and 2008.

The mass rapist was arrested in Venezuela in December 2017, almost 10 years after he allegedly raped children on a massive scale in the area around Barranquilla in northern Colombia.

The computer engineer was initially suspected of pedophilia in 2005 and arrested for sexually abusing a 14-year-old in 2008, but was released in spite of six victims testifying against him, according to weekly Semana.

In the following years, dozens of reports of child abuse emerged in different municipalities along the coast. But the authorities treated them as isolated cases, and no one thought of connecting the dots and thinking of Sanchez as one of the possible culprits. The Big Bad Wolf’s tracks disappeared on the road to impunity and inefficiency for years.
