Famous rappers have it all -- booze, bucks and broads. Phony rappers, on the other hand, take what they can get. And criminal phony rappers do it by force.

Which brings us to Fernando Archuleta, who's accused of using bogus rap credentials to rape a fourteen-year-old.

According to the Jefferson County District Attorney's Office, Archuleta, a forty-year-old who goes by the name "Marz," hung out a lot at Water World in the summer of 2009 -- and he appears to have had intentions that went beyond wholesome family fun.

He allegedly approached a fourteen-year-old girl at the wave pool and offered to teach her surfboard tricks. And those weren't the only youthful activities in which he claimed to be adept. He's said to have told her he was an artist who painted clothing, as well as an "aspiring rapper."

Oh yeah: He also claimed to be 28.

The Water World intro did the trick: Police reports say Archuleta and the girl met at an area mall and an arts festival, and began texting as well. Then, one evening, Archuleta sent her a message saying he had some CDs he wanted to show her.

The girl told cops she responded by inviting Archuleta to her Westminster house, letting him in through a window -- at which point he raped her.

Archuleta has been charged with sexually assaulting a child in a pattern of conduct, a class three felony -- and Westminster police aren't convinced the girl was his only victim. Anyone with additional information is encouraged to phone the department at 303-658-4243. If more accusers come forward, this aspiring rapper could wind up with quite a rap sheet.

His face looks like ground beef. He's so ugly, maybe he won't have to worry about getting raped in prison.

Yooo! I know him! When did he get arrested for this? This is crazy!

Me!
Me!

As opposed to Queens, which has a higher robbery crime rate than the national US average and is a dirty, noisy, armpit of a city?  Your "profile" says that you've made about 3,200 comments on crime-related news articles.  Do people in New York not have jobs or hobbies other than talking shit behind the protective barrier of internet anonymity?  Do people in New York not realize that they are really obnoxious and unwelcome in most other parts of the country?  I'm guessing that the answers to those questions is a big "NO."

you also have a police department who fabricates evidence in order to lock up Black people so that you can claim New York City is a nicer place now, to a bunch of susceptible White People.

How do you do this? Your NYPD handed charged 50,000  people with Marijuana offenses last year.

Wow, what a great place to live. I would rather enjoy freedom and get raped by Marz then live in the shithole you do. LOL.
