CHICAGO (jGLi) – An unemployed American, who lured a Filipina to come to the United States with a promise of marriage, was sentenced Friday, Oct. 5, to be jailed for 20 years for kicking her several times after every time he raped her for 24 days ending on April 26, 2010 when she escaped from his Seattle, Washington State suburban home.
Patrick John McAllister, 49, of the 300 Block of Seamount Drive, Brinnon, Washington, was sentenced by Judge Craddock Verser of the Superior Court of the State of Washington at Jefferson County to 250 months in jail, according to Jefferson County Prosecutor Scott W. Rosekrans of suburban Port Townsend.McAllister, who was free on $100,000 bond, was placed in custody on Aug. 10 when a jury returned a verdict that found him guilty of 31 counts of rape in the second degree – domestic violence, rape in the third degree – domestic violence and assault in the fourth degree – domestic violence.
McAllister’s private defense lawyer, Lance Hester, in an email to this reporter, said McAllister was “broken hearted” when the Filipina identified only by her initial, “S. L,” left him. And now even two years later, he remains aghast that she would go to the extremes that she has, for maintaining U.S. residency and probable (U.S.) citizenship in years to come.“ He (McAllister) maintains that he is the true victim in this case and is sorely disappointed the jury did not agree with his testimony. He filed his notice of appeal before leaving the courtroom at sentencing.”
Hester said, “S. L.” attended the sentencing and was “emotional,” and testified, saying “the whole matter was shameful” to her. She was accompanied by her new boyfriend and her brother-in-law, Temur Perkins. “S. L.” is now “23 or 24 years old.”
For his part, Prosecutor Rosekrans told this reporter in an email, “Mr. McAllister did not apologize (after the sentencing). He accused her (S. L.) of lying. He has a pending case filed in the United States District Court-Seattle. Mr. McAllister was lucky to get only 20 years. He could have gotten a Life sentence.”
According to court documents, McAllister was introduced to “S. L.” by her brother-in-law, Temur Perkins, who described his profession during his testimony to the case as someone “who works from home.” He is married to S. L.’s sister, Rosemarie, and they live at Port Townsend, 60 miles northwest of Seattle. McAllister began a relationship with “S. L.”by calling her several months when she lived with her family in the Philippines.
McAllister MET “S. L” IN THE PHILIPPINES IN 2008
McAllister went to the Philippines on March 15, 2008 and stayed there until March 28, 2008 to meet “S. L.” and spent time with her. After McAllister returned to the U.S., he told “S. L.” he would give her a good life, be a good husband and he loved her and wanted her to be his wife. “S. L.” arrived in Seattle, Washington on March 14, 2010 and went to the residence of McAllister at the 300 Block of Seamount Drive in Brinnon, about 66 miles west of Seattle. Four days later on March 18, 2010, McAllister raped “S. L.” The following day and almost daily until April 25, 2010, McAllister would force her to perform oral sex to him and raped her and after forcing her to have sex, he would kick her three to six times. On April 26, 2010, “S. L.” escaped and later filed a complaint against McAllister.
Attorney Hester said McAllister “was in love with “S. L.” and that he never raped her, and never assaulted her in any way shape or form. He was looking forward to marrying her. And he believes that she and her brother in law, Temur Perkins, masterminded a method for helping “S. L.” get to the U.S. at McAllister’s expense (250 months of prison!).
Hester added “S. L.” is now in the U.S. with a “U” visa, which means that instead of going home (to the Philippines) after her and McAllister’s relationship broke off, the (U.S.) government allowed her to remain (in the U.S.) on a U visa when she claimed to be the victim of domestic violence. A U visa status was created by the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act of 2000. It is designed to provide lawful status to (U.S.) non-citizen crime victims who are assisting or are willing to assist the authorities in investigating crimes.
Applicant for U visa must have suffered substantial physical or mental abuse due to a criminal activity in at least one of the following categories: rape, torture, trafficking, incest, domestic violence, sexual assault, abusive sexual contact, prostitution, sexual exploitation, female genital mutilation, hostage situations, peonage, false imprisonment, involuntary servitude, slave trade, kidnapping, abduction, unlawful criminal restraint, blackmail, extortion, manslaughter, murder, felonious assault, witness tampering, obstruction of justice, perjury or attempt, conspiracy, or solicitation to commit any of the above mentioned crimes.
“S. L.” never became pregnant,” according to Mr. Rosekrans. McAllister was initially charged with 19-count second-degree rape charges; 10-count third-degree rape charges; and 11-count fourth-degree rape charges. A second-degree charge of rape is characterized by “forcible compulsion,” whose conviction calls for a penalty of a maximum life in prison and/or $50,000 fine; a third-degree rape charge involves an unmarried person, who did not consent to the sexual assault and calls for a maximum of five years imprisonment and/or fine of $10,000; while a fourth degree rape charge involves “intentional assault” and carries a one year imprisonment or $5,000 fine or both. It was reported that investigation of the case took more than a year because of language difficulties. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
