Miami – February 21, 2020

“Today, Carmen Barahona accepted responsibility for the atrocities she inflicted on two innocent children placed in her care and eventually adopted by her and her husband and co-defendant, Jorge Barahona.

By allowing her to enter her guilty plea today and assist in the prosecution of her husband, we are one step closer to helping the surviving child victim in this case see justice prevail for him and his deceased twin sister, Nubia.

My prosecution team remains vigilant in obtaining justice against Jorge Barahona for the horrific acts he is responsible for against these innocent children.

Today’s sentence of life in prison is being deferred until after her full and truthful cooperation against her co-defendant, Jorge Barahona.

If she fails in this requirement, she will be facing a sentencing hearing before a jury.”

Katherine Fernandez Rundle,
State Attorney

State Attorney Fernandez Rundle will be available for an interview after 2 PM this afternoon. Please call 305-547-0535 to schedule a time.
