Alleged kidnapping suspect Ariel Castro could face death penalty

Cleveland's Chief Assistant Prosecutor Victor Perez joins Zoraida Sambolin on 'Starting Point' to discuss the charges brought against alleged Ohio kidnapping suspect Ariel Castro. Victor Perez read the official charges that Castro is currently being charged with; as of now Castro is charged with three counts of rape, and four counts of kidnapping.

Perez's main concern in this case is for people to understand that the acts of Ariel Castro do not reflect the entire Puerto Rican community in this country. Perez states, "the Puerto Rican community is a hard working community," and he hopes that that the country realizes there is more to this community then the acts of this one individual.
