A Federal Way Man was sentenced to 11 years in prison recently for second-degree rape and promoting prostitution in the first and second degree in King County Superior Court.

James Alan Delong, 67, who raped and pimped two severely developmentally disabled women over a four-year period, was charged on Feb. 21, 2014. According to court documents, Delong told police he had a sexual relationship with both victims, ages 51 and 56 and claimed the 51-year-old can’t read or write, tell time, hold a job and that she doesn’t know the alphabet.

The police reported Delong said he took the two women to his friend’s home in Gig Harbor so the friend could have sex with the victims. His friend gave Delong $100 each time he had sex with the women.

A person living with Delong and the victims at the time, reported the crimes to police Feb. 18. She said her 51-year-old roommate had been away from the house for more than a week and when she asked her about it, the victim said she is afraid of Delong and feels uncomfortable around him. The roommate also told police that Delong “groomed” the victim as he bought her children’s Snoopy books and toys, according to court documents.

Delong’s criminal history includes driving violations, three DUI arrests that resulted in two convictions, a conviction for marijuana possession and an arrest for patronizing a prostitute in 2005.

The court ordered Delong must have no contact with the two victims for life.

Within 30 days of Delong’s release, he must obtain a sexual deviancy evaluation with a state certified therapist and follow through with all the recommendations of the evaluator. He also is required to register as a sex and kidnapping offender with the sheriff of the county he resides.

Delong is currently appealing the case.
