This punk needs to be sent to prison for life. A "senior prank"!!! Yeah, right, David! It's 3 hots and a cot for you for life, baby!!! Unfortunately, at taxpayer expense, but anything to keep sickos like you off our streets, and out of our neighborhoods. : (

If it actually was a prank, it's what we used to refer to as "felony stupid in public." In either case he deserves to do time.

Pranks don't usually involve the victim trying "to escape six or seven times..."

Pranks don't usually involve trying "to pry open her legs..."

Pranks don't usually involve knives.

Pranks don't usually take "five and eight minutes" of terror.

If you read the article and see this criminal's obsession with this teacher, the real objective becomes quite clear. I hope he does some serious jail time.

He was under the influence of his own psychopathy.

Five-eight minutes of that terror? That seems endless when you're being attacked. What the hell did this monster do during that time? Sounds like his first assault w/a weapon- he was pretty inefficient.

Prank? He'll learn about real pranks in prison.

I hope that Ms. Doe continues to recover & Velazquez is convicted.
