A SICKO creep who raped a dy­ing teen and texted ex­plicit pic­tures of her got off with a slap-on-the-wrist sen­tence! Brian Varela faces just 34 months in jail for the crime — and a judge blamed sen­tenc­ing guide­lines for the pun­ish­ment. Varela, 20, pleaded guilty to man­slaugh­ter, rape and un­law­ful dis­posal of re­mains af­ter Alyssa No­ceda, 18, over­dosed in his bed­room on Feb. 3 in Lyn­nwood, Wash. Cops said Varela was host­ing a party when Alyssa in­gested painkillers and liq­uid mar­i­juana be­fore pass­ing out.

In­stead of seek­ing help, Varela had sex with her, of­fi­cials said.

“LOL I think she od’d, still breath­ing. I’m smash­ing her to pass the time,” he texted friends, along with pic­tures of the semi-nude girl. The day af­ter, he re­port­edly went to his job and claimed he’d put Alyssa’s body in a crate that he planned to bury. Since Varela had no prior record, Su­pe­rior Court Judge Linda Krese said she couldn’t im­pose a harsher sen­tence and in­sisted her hands were tied.
