Man Learns His Fate After Raping A 82-Year-Old Woman

A 20-year-old man has been convicted for breaking into an 82-year-old woman's home and repeatedly sexually assaulting her.

Asa Robert will now serve up to 122 years in prison given his convictions for rape, criminal sex act, burglary, robbery and criminal trespassing.

Acting Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez commented: “This defendant committed a reprehensible and terrifying assault on a vulnerable elderly woman who had the courage to face her attacker in court. This defendant has now been brought to justice and held accountable for his actions.”

According to court testimony, Robert broke into the Brighton Beach home in 2015 armed with a knife and demanded money from the victim.

Robert then tied up the home owner, raped her for several hours and told her to not call police.

The police report highlighted that it took four days to apprehend Robert, as he managed to hide out in several homes in the neighborhood before he was finally trapped in a home he had broken into.

Despite the overwhelming evidence, jurors took a long time deliberating and debating whether Robert used the knife in the sexual assault or not.

The jurors eventually decided to not convict Robert on the charge of predatory sexual assault, so he did not have an extra 25 years to life tacked on to his sentence.
