Assistant District Attorney Allison Christian of our Family Violence and Sexual Assault Unit helped secure justice in a case involving a defendant accused of three stranger rapes that occurred in 2011, 2014, and 2015. The defendant, who was apprehended in 2019 after a CODIS identification linked his DNA to all three forensic kits, used a knife in one incident and a crowbar in another. The survivors testified at trial. He was found guilty by a jury and is scheduled for sentencing by the Hon. Anne Marie Coyle in January.
