Barrientos is accused of taking the woman -- who is at the developmental level of a 5- to 6-year-old child, wears leg braces on both legs and has a speech impairment -- into a men's room stall, where he allegedly raped her, Birney said

Barrientos could face up to 150 years in prison if convicted of the charges which include kidnapping, rape of an incompetent person and sexual penetration by a foreign object by force.
