The 51-year-old man who tied up his wife’s secret boyfriend before cutting off his privates has been sentenced to 20 years behind bars.
Alex Bonilla had been charged with aggravated assault with a firearm, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, burglary while armed, and kidnapping to inflict bodily harm for the July 14, 2019 incident.
He previously entered a plea deal of no contest on the charges but let the court determine the punishment.
The father-of-five from Florida was handed a 20-year jail sentence, ordered to pay over $251,000, and 10 years of probation.
He has been imprisoned since 2019 when he was arrested for mutilating a 32-year-old man in the Gainesville suburb of Bell.
His wife’s lover was rushed to a hospital but doctors said they could not re-attach his penis, leaving the married father-of-two unable to have sex with his wife or urinate properly, court documents reveal.
According to Gilchrist County Sheriff’s Office, the 32-year-old victim called 911 and said Bonilla had broken into his home.
The furious husband reportedly tied the victim up then “forcefully cut off the victim’s penis with a pair of scissors.”
A pre-sentence report filed by the Florida Department of Corrections in January revealed that the incident started to unfold on July 14, 2019, two months after Bonilla caught his married neighbor having sex with his wife.
According to documents, Bonilla told his neighbor: “You need to stay away from my wife and leave her alone.” His words allegedly angered the man and he physically tackled Bonilla.
“The defendant stated he then blacked out and doesn’t remember anything from that point until he was at work and was arrested,” the document added.
However, the victim’s statement gives a different story.
The mutilated neighbor said that Bonilla barged into his home while he was making breakfast for his children. Bonilla allegedly declared: “I cam here to fix something,” then led him to a bedroom where he made the victim sit on the bed as he pointed a gun to his head.
“You are not going to die, but you are going to have something to remember for your whole life,” Bonilla told him before using a pair of scissors to cut his private organ.
Bonilla was arrested at the Alliance Dairies where he worked. The victim’s private organ was never recovered.
