(This is how it should look, buddy.)


Veteran lightweight and former Ultimate Fighting Championship competitor Hermes Franca has been arrested in Oregon on alleged charges of sexual abuse.

Franca, 36, previously resided in the state and operated Team Hermes Franca Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Clackamas, Ore. The fighter allegedly flew to Oregon on Monday from Florida, where he now resides, and turned himself in to Clackamas County Jail on seven counts of sexual abuse in the first degree and two counts of unlawful sexual penetration in the second degree.

The news was first reported by Examiner.com on Thursday; Sherdog.com confirmed the news with the Clackamas County Jail and a source close to Franca shortly thereafter. According to a Clackamas County Jail official, Franca’s bail has been set at $250,000, and a trial is scheduled for July 12 at 9 a.m. in the Clackamas County Courthouse in Oregon City, Ore.

7 counts of sexual abuse? Wow.
"unlawful sexual penetration" ....is that a legal term for rape?

I believe that it implies rape without a penis (insertion of a foreign object)

From the 1998 Criminal Code of Oregon:

163.408 Unlawful sexual penetration in the second degree.

(1) Except as permitted under ORS 163.412, a person commits the crime of unlawful sexual penetration in the second degree if the person penetrates the vagina, anus or penis of another with any object other than the penis or mouth of the actor and the victim is under 14 years of age.

(2) Unlawful sexual penetration in the second degree is a Class B felony.



Franca is toast. Pack it up, it's over.

The worst part: Chael will most likely receive a harsher punishment than him.
