Guam - After spending the last six years behind bars, Carlo Borja issued an apology to the girl he abducted at knifepoint and raped when she was 9 years old. Borja was sentenced to 15 years behind bars with credit for time served with the possibility of parole.

This means he will spend another 9 years in jail and then face deportation to the Philippines.

Prior to receiving his sentence Borja expressed regret and remorse saying he is sorry for the hurt and suffering he caused the victim. He said, "I wish things that happened didn't happen. That I could have stopped myself and I have no greater hope than for her to be happy on this day. That she's a normal kid going to school."

Borja said he hopes the victim will forgive him someday and he hopes to better himself and be a productive member of society. In exchange for his guilty plea to a single charge of first degree criminal sexual conduct, the government dropped about a dozen other charges against him involving separate cases.
