Louie Lucero, accused of torturing women, insists relationships were consensual

This arrives a little late for Valentine's Day, but Louie Lucero has an unusual approach to romance that's bound to send any female into orbit -- and probably to the hospital.

The southwest Colorado man, who has a history of domestic violence cases and is currently on trial for assault and false imprisonment charges involving three women over a dozen years, is claiming it's all a big misunderstanding -- because Louie the Love Bug practices consensual abuse.

In attempting to establish a pattern of domestic violence by Lucero, prosecutors are presenting claims dating back to 2000 (some past the statute of limitations) to establish that Lucero has made a habit of beating, strangling, abusing and otherwise humiliating women. According to this account of opening statements in the Durango Herald, two of his partners ended up with broken arms. Two were branded with a hot iron, though at least one allegedly agreed to the procedure. One got motor oil poured on her.

"This case is about relationships that are hard for a lot of us to understand," public defender Katie Telfer told the jury. She argued that methamphetamine fueled some of the consensual weirdness and that none of the victims felt compelled to report Lucero to the police.

Lucero's defense, if successful, could set domestic violence victims back a few centuries. But he may have a hard time selling broken limbs to a jury, and an even harder time convincing them that a dog owned by one of the women also agreed to be abused. He's facing animal-cruelty charges for allegedly keeping the dog chained up in freezing weather, dousing it in ice water and breaking its leg.

The trial could last up to three weeks, during which the details of Lucero's romantic adventures might possibly get the entire jury aroused. Just not sexually, if you know what I mean.

This monster is a narcissist and a sociopath Extremely dangerous ,self centered, ignorant, violent with no regard for other human beings. He thinks he is the center of the universe, and has nothing to offer except terror. Short man complex, with an extreme hatred for women. Which brings a conclusion this retard is gay. Prison will end up being a playground for him on e he accepts his homosexuality. There isnt one single positive quality about this creep. He has no empathy at all. This selfish thing just takes what he wants and is such a cheap cheapskate freeloader


He really want people to believe that the women want to get beaten while having sex. He;s a sick individual, to even think that this kind of abuse towards women is ok. He want a jury of his peers to believe that he did nothing wrong.All cases that are presented in court,you are innocent until proven guilty. In alot people eyes you are guilty.Just because of what type of crime it is.Hope for your sake that woman agree to this.If you did the crime you deserve the time.

Typical American.  If he's not hurting women, he's hurting animals or small children.  F'n sicko.  Should be in Afghanistan with the rest of his type.


 typical American? Like this type of abuse doesn't happen in other countries? What about that Austrian guy who kept his daughter in cellar for over 20 years, or the German guy who kept a female slave for her entire childhood?
