Sex offender gets 12 years in prison; two shot in Lake Edward


Christopher Santos Orlina, 47, formerly of the 200 block of Ash Avenue in central Virginia Beach, was sentenced last week on a charge of object sexual penetration, according to Virginia Beach Commonwealth's Attorney Colin Stolle.

Circuit Court Judge Glenn R. Croshaw sentenced Orlina to 30 years in prison, with 18 years suspended, leaving 12 years to serve and he must register as a sex offender, for life.

At the trial, which occurred on August 1 and 2, 2018, the evidence showed that on August 15, 2017, the victim, a young woman in her early 20s, went to Orlina's office to receive a massage for shoulder pain she was experiencing.

During the massage, Orlina touched the victim inappropriately and without her consent. Orlina was repeatedly told to stop, but he continued.

The victim was eventually able to get up and leave and Orlina apologized to her for what he had done. During a phone sting conducted by police and the victim a few days later, Orlina did not deny the events happening and further apologized to the victim.

On Sunday, January 27 at 9:55 p.m., ​Virginia Beach Emergency Communications began receiving multiple 911 calls for reports of gunshots being heard in the Lake Edward area of Virginia Beach.

Two adult victims were located in the area of Pickering Street and Redkirk Lane, suffering from gunshot wounds. Both had what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries and were transported to a local hospital for treatment.

According to PilotOnline.com, a Virginia Beach police officer inadvertently shot one of the people, while shooting at a suspect.

Investigators are not seeking any suspects at this time.
