Utah: Muslim migrant who raped two women when he was 14 spared adult prison despite pleas from victims
A Somali refugee who raped two Utah women when he was 14, has been spared adult prison despite pleas from one of his victims.
Mohammed Ali Mohammed, 20, has spent almost six years at a Salt Lake Valley juvenile detention center after pleading guilty rape, sexual assault and kidnapping charges in 2012, the Salt Lake Tribune reports.
He was due to age out of the juvenile system when he turns 21 next month, leaving Judge Vernice Trease with a choice; sentence him to serve time in an adult prison for his crimes, or release him on five year?s probation. She chose the latter.
The sentence comes as a bitter blow to his victims and prosecutors who sought to keep him behind bars.
One woman, who was attacked and raped in her own Salt Lake City home by Mohammed, who then forced her at knife point to take money out at the ATM, said she is terrified? at the thought her rapist will be free to walk the streets where she lives.
