Man Sentenced for Sexual Assault at Ashburn Restaurant

Man Sentenced for Sexual Assault at Ashburn Restaurant

Luis Fernando Ore, 21, pled guilty in Loudoun County Circuit on Jan. 31 to one count of abduction with intent to defile and two counts of aggravated sexual battery as a result of an assault on two juveniles at the Elevation Burger restaurant in Ashburn on Nov. 13, 2016.

Judge Jeanette A. Irby imposed a sentence of life in prison with all but fifty-four years suspended, according to a Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney release.

“While Mr. Ore could have been exposed to a mandatory life sentence if convicted at trial, the notion of these two young girls, ages 7 and 8, having to relive this horror in a public courtroom was a compelling reason to make this agreement,” said Commonwealth’s Attorney Jim Plowman. “Further assurances were put into the plea that will likely see Mr. Ore the subject of a civil commitment to a secure facility for sexually violent predators, thus ensuring the public’s safety after his prison term.”

Upon his release, Ore will be placed on supervised probation for the remainder of his life. He is prohibited from any contact with the victim, any unsupervised contact with minors, and will be evaluated for civil commitment as a sexually violent predator. Ore also agreed that he will not contest any sexually violent predator designation that may be imposed after an evaluation, according to the release.

Ore is a registered sex offender who had been previously convicted of two counts of aggravated sexual battery and two counts of abduction with intent to defile in July 19, 2012.
