Prosecutors say Rodolfo Hernandez-Suazo, 54, lured his daughter to a south Arlington hotel room, raped her and then prevented her from leaving.

Hernandez-Suazo and his daughter had been estranged for about 20 years after his departure from El Salvador. They were reunited when she came to the states to live with her mother in 2009.

Hernandez-Suazo’s sentence also includes a five year sentence for incest and a $25,000 fine.
