A Maryland man was convicted Friday of sexually assaulting a fellow U.S. Marine while the woman slept.

Pedro Javier Orellana, 24, was serving in the U.S. Marine Corps and based at Camp Pendleton north of San Diego at the time of the attack.

It took jurors just one day of deliberation to convict Orellana.

He admitted to investigators he didn’t really know the woman and had only seen her in passing a few times.

However, on Nov. 2, 2014, Orellana took advantage of the active-duty Marine who was “too drunk to know what was going on” as he explained to Navy investigators.

He entered the Marine’s apartment without knocking, found her in a bedroom where she was sleeping and sexually assaulted her.

Orellana told NCIS investigators had received training through USMC regarding sexual assault prevention.

Orellana, who is no longer a U.S. Marine, will be sentenced in November on one count of sexual abuse of an incapacitated victim.

I cannot add much to that statement other than I wish that female Marine the best in life and I hope she is able to move past this tragedy.

This is sad and hope he gets the Max. I don't understand it why do it you know it is wrong. The worst part is peopel will see this and go see look then military breeds this behavior. When really we are a small microcosm of what happens in the civilian population but they won't admit that.

It's the 10% that gives us a bad reputation and he is part of that 10%. When I was active duty, we all were ( and still are) brothers and sisters. We might argue some among ourselves, even throw a few fists here and there, but we always had each others back. Of course the morals the world had back then was of a higher caliber than the morals of the world today. I hope he gets the max sentence also.
