Local child rapist sentenced to life imprisonment for raping five-year-old girl

The Provincial Commissioner of the Police in Mpumalanga, Lieutenant General Mondli Zuma, said he was elated over the sentencing of a child rapist on Monday, 16 October.

This came after the Secunda Regional Court sentenced a 69-year-old man to life imprisonment for the rape of a five-year-old girl in September 2011.

Aaron Baloi, who was well known in the neighbourhood, lured the victim into his room by enticing her with sweets, then pounced on and brutally raped her.

After he was done, he threatened and instructed her not to reveal the gruesome ordeal to anyone.

In the meantime her family was looking for her and when they could not find her where she had been playing with other children, including Baloi’s own grandchildren, they called for a lookout for the missing girl.

Later that evening, they found the child who looked distraught, scared and in pain.

When asked where she was, she told her parents

‘Sexual predator’ Larry Stiff sentenced for drugging, raping 2 women

MUSKEGON COUNTY, MI – A “sexual predator” who began raping when he was 14 was sentenced Tuesday for drugging and raping two women, though according to the prosecutor the number of victims was likely much higher.

Larry Stiff was sentenced to 24 years to 51 years in prison by Muskegon County Circuit Judge Timothy Hicks. He received the sentence for each count, but they will be served concurrently.

The judge gave him 458 days credit for time already served in jail. He also ordered Stiff to a lifetime of electronic monitoring “if and when he leaves” prison.

Stiff, 32, was convicted by a jury last month after four women testified their drinks were drugged before they were sexually assaulted. Two others said they were drugged but managed to escape being assaulted. The jury deliberated for less than a half hour.

Rapist who attacked jogger sentenced to 40 years | New York Post

A predator who viciously beat and raped a 26-year-old jogger in East River Park was hit with a 40-year prison sentence Tuesday.

Paul Niles, 30, dragged the woman into the park’s bushes in 2015 before attacking her and warning her to beware of psychopaths, she testified last month at a Manhattan trial.

“This was a brutal stranger assault, and I commend the victim for her bravery in bringing her attacker to justice,” said Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. in a statement.

The victim told jurors that Niles had strangled her until she started to black out in November 2015 then raped her without a condom.

He kept putting his hand across my mouth saying, ‘Shut up or I’ll f—king kill you,’” she told jurors.

“After he was done, he threw my running shorts at me. He started searching my pockets and said, ‘Where’s the cash? Where’s the money?’” she testified.

Nantucket serial rapist sentenced | masslive.com

BARNSTABLE – A man who preyed on women as they slept in their Nantucket homes over the course of seven years was sentenced to serve 20 years in prison Tuesday in Barnstable Superior Court, the Cape Cod Times reported. 

David Matterson, 37, accepted a plea bargain with prosecutors last month. Judge Gary Nickerson sentenced Matterson to serve his sentence at the Cedar Junction facility in Walpole followed by 10 years of supervised release.   

Cape and Islands Assistant District Attorney Tara Miltimore said in each of the four incidents Matterson was accused of, he entered the homes of women at 4 a.m. They awoke to find him on top of them and armed with a knife. He tied the women and sexually assaulted them. Three of those attacks resulted in rape charges. The fourth woman fought Matterson off, screaming and waking her neighbors. He finally ran off but not before he struck her with a piece of

‘Pedophile’ sentenced to 25 years

TRAVERSE CITY — A local judge looked far past sentencing guidelines as he ordered a convicted child molester to a minimum of 25 years in prison for “disturbing” sexual contact with an adolescent girl.

“Even if the guidelines were lower I’d give him that much,” said 13th Circuit Court Judge Thomas Power, ignoring a recommended sentence of about 10-18 years because of the “danger” the man poses to society.

Guy Louis Shelton, 46 of Grawn, will spend at least the next few decades with the Michigan Department of Corrections after authorities said he inappropriately touched multiple young girls. Two girls told Grand Traverse County sheriff’s deputies Shelton repeatedly touched them sexually dating as far back as 2003.

One was between 5 and 7 years old at the time, according to court records. The other was a 7-year-old.

Shelton last month pleaded guilty to first-degree criminal sexual conduct. Prosecutors — as part of a plea
