(Golden, CO – February 28, 2020) Angelique Cassandra Lopez, DOB: 6-30-90, was sentenced yesterday to 30 years in prison for her role in the kidnapping and assault of a 33-year-old woman in Lakewood.
In January 2020, a Jefferson County jury found Lopez guilty of Aggravated Witness Intimidation (F3); Second Degree Kidnapping (F3), Menacing (F5); Third Degree Assault (M1); and False Imprisonment (M2).
Lopez was one of six codefendants charged in this case. Four have previously pled guilty and been sentenced to prison. One case is pending.
On May 13, 2019 Lopez and another woman forced the victim into a room at the Big Bunny Motel at 6218 W. Colfax Avenue. She was secured to a chair with duct tape and zip-ties. Over a period of three hours the young woman was threatened with a handgun, assaulted, and burned with cigarettes and large sticks of incense. She was then injected with a cocktail of methamphetamine and heroin and dumped in a parking lot. Someone found her and called 911. The victim was found barely conscious, bleeding, with duct tape on her wrists, and a needle mark in her arm.
The codefendants believed she had given information to police about a crime.
