Armed police arrest convicted rapist after sex attack on woman who feared she was going to die but managed to dial …

A terrified woman managed to dial 999 on her mobile phone as she was being sexually assaulted by convicted rapist David Diemer, a court heard.

N.J. Supreme Court: Teen Gang Rapist, Armed Robber Unfairly Sentenced

ESSEX COUNTY, NJ — The New Jersey Supreme Court has ruled that two juveniles convicted for their roles in violent crimes were unfairly sentenced to life in prison because the trial judges didn’t properly consider their ages.

On Wednesday, the state supreme court ruled that the two former youth offenders – now incarcerated adults – must be re-sentenced under the precedent set in the U.S. Supreme Court’s determination in Miller v. Alabama, which holds that “youth and its attendant characteristics” should be considered at the time a juvenile is sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole.

As a result, the two men – one who participated in two separate gang rapes and the other who took part in four armed robberies – may now have a chance to be released before they die in prison, according to the ACLU of New Jersey.

From the judges’ written opinion:

“The U.S. Supreme Court has
