Franklin Carcamo Giron Sentenced to 50 Years For 2001 Rape Of A Child in Loudoun

Judge Douglas L. Fleming of the Loudoun County Circuit Court handed a fifty-year prison term to Franklin Carcamo Giron for the 2001 assault of a twelve-year-old. After his indictment on December 10, 2001, Carcamo Giron was released on bond and subsequently left the U.S. He remained elusive until being extradited from El Salvador in August 2022. By March 23, 2023, he admitted guilt to the crime involving a minor below 13 years.

While the Virginia Sentencing Guidelines proposed a sentencing span of 9 to 19 years and 4 months, Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Jaweria M. Siyal advocated for a stiffer penalty. She emphasized the severe nature of the crime and Carcamo Giron’s escape as reasons for a longer sentence. Siyal also reminded the court of the contrasting life experiences of the perpetrator and the victim, the latter living with a tarnished childhood.

Deputy Commonwealth’s Attorney Anna Hammond and Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Jaweria Siyal directed the prosecution efforts.

In line with Virginia’s regulations regarding sex offenses, Carcamo Giron will be mandated to enlist as a sex offender. Details regarding the registry and its listed individuals are accessible via the Virginia State Police website.
