A former Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight title contender has been sentenced to more than three years in prison after being convicted this week of sexually abusing an underage female student at his Clackamas martial arts school.

Hermes Franca Barros, 37, pleaded guilty in Clackamas County Court on Wednesday to one count of unlawful penetration and one count of first-degree sexual abuse. He was sentenced to 3½ years in prison.

He was arraigned in May on seven counts of first-degree sexual abuse and two counts of second-degree unlawful sexual penetration. The remaining counts were dismissed.

Barros will also have four and a half years of post-prison supervision and must register as a sex offender.

Good job you purple haired idiot. I hope the brothers ride a train on your ass.

I don't feel bad anymore for Franca being screwed in a fight by a non-sanctioned event/promoter a few years ago.

I wouldn't be surprised if that happened... But Franca should have known better.

I'm not sure many more facts will come out considering he's already been convicted *and* sentenced.

What I mean is, do we know the age of the girl and whether or not it was consensual? I'm not condoning his behavior, but there's a huge difference in actually sexually abusing a minor, and having sex with a 17 year old. We don't know how old the victim was or the circumstances behind the conviction.

Well, usually when a person agrees to a plea bargain, it is usually because he or she is guilty. Would you agree to a plea bargain if you never committed the crime? There are some sensitive civil and abuse/harassment cases where the defendant may choose to plead guilty to avoid a heftier punishment but I doubt this is the case.

This is a serious charge and if Franca did not commit the crime, there should be no reason for him to plead guilty. My gut tells me he got off easy.

I suppose that's all a matter of opinion.

And in my opinion, a 37 year old having sex with a 17-year old is downright disgusting.

you mean "drinking, UNDER AGE-woman, parties, all part of a lifestyle that has led to my failing as a husband, a father, a dreamer,"

fuck this guy, even if it was consensual he still should know, as a grown-ass man, that its wrong to have sex with a 17 year old. and only getting 3.5 years? wtf man, sexual crimes should be a mandatory 10+ year sentence.

I have to agree here. There is 0 excuse for this. The guy is scum no matter what the circumstance is.

It's a despicable act by Hermes, no excuses can be made for it, he deserves more than 3 & 1/2 years but oh well, hopefully he learns his lesson while inside.
