In England — a man is jailed for 14 years because he tried to rape a 94-year old DeafBlind woman during a burglary in her house after midnight. This happened several months ago and the DeafBlind woman has since passed away (not because of the incident, but of old age).
The rapist’s name is Gregory Willis and he got into the woman’s house after midnight through an open door while her family was inside. The family noticed that a door was open and found the man on the elderly woman’s bed — he had pulled her pajamas off, and seemed to be ready to rape her before a family member caught him and kicked him out of the house. He came back a second time, and police arrested him. He had a car key that belonged to the family in his pocket.
Terrible — it appears the woman did not realize what was happening to her — she was very frail and did not have short-term memory and appeared to not be able to communicate.
The rapist has apologized to the family and said he was under the influence of a substance and did not remember what happened.
The judge who ordered him jailed said it was a deeply shocking and horrible event.
He’s now in prison and will remain there for 14 years.
