Latino Activist ARRESTED RAPE – Criticized Trump Mexican Rapists Comment


Arrested RAPE

Utah Latino activist Tony Yapias, a native of Peru, has been charged with rape for assaulting a woman he had a relationship with up until a few weeks ago.

Yapias is reportedly an illegal alien himself originally who supports open borders and who harshly criticized Donald Trump for calling some Mexicans rapists.

Yapias, 50 was charged with one count of rape, a first-degree felony, and one count of evidence tampering, a class A misdemeanor.


NORTH SALT LAKE, Utah – Prominent Latino activist Tony Yapias spoke to reporters for the first time, Tuesday, after rape accusations surfaced against him by a former long-term girlfriend.

Yapias, director of Proyecto Latino de Utah and radio show host, was charged with rape and evidence tampering in the 3rd District Court Monday. He was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail on $250,000 bail but bailed out Tuesday morning.

The charges stem from an incident that occurred on March 21 when Yapias’ former girlfriend of four years claims she was assaulted by him in her South Salt Lake home.

Davis County Attorney’s Office will be prosecuting the case.

At about 2 p.m. Tuesday, the 50-year-old met with reporters outside his offices in North Salt Lake to make a statement regarding the accusations.

“These are very serious allegations,” he said. “I don’t wish them on anybody.”

Yapias said it’s a serious matter so at the same time it would be premature for him to say anything about the case or go into any details involving the matter.

Despite the nature of the charges, Yapias said, he has received an outpouring of support from the community.

“I’ve been here for over 30 years,” he said. “Working on issues of the legal system has been one of our, has been one of the issues I’ve been fighting for most of my life, but this time it’s my turn.”

As the case plays out in the judicial system, Yapias said, he has confidence in the legal system and believes his story will come out.

Yapias plans to continue his activist work in the community.
