Sentencings for sexual assault

Mead Valley, California - A 57-year-old man who sexually assaulted at least nine women he took to his home between 2001 and 2005, most of whom have developmental disabilities, was sentenced last Friday to 965 years in prison. The disturbing details of the case against Peter Frances Milosavjevi, who remarkably, had previous convictions in 1983 and 1995 for raping and brutalizing women, are here.

Ithaco, New York - A 65-year-old man has been sentenced to spend one year in prison for sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl with developmental disabilities, the Ithaca Journal reports. According to the assistant district attorney, Bernard A. Lamphere singled out and lured the girl, who has suffered nightmares and is afraid to be alone since the incident, to his home by promising to show her his stuffed animal collection. He was sentenced to one year in jail for endangering the welfare of a child and 90 days in jail for third-degree sexual abuse, to be served concurrently.
