UPPER MARLBORO – Juan Randolph of the District of Columbia was sentenced to 35 years in prison on June 6 after pleading guilty to first-degree rape and burglary.
On April 29, 2015, Randolph broke into a Chillum residence, said he had a gun and would kill the victim (who is a Catholic nun) if she didn’t comply with his demands. He then ordered her into her bedroom and raped her.
According to court records, after raping the victim, Randolph laid in bed with the victim for several hours before leaving with her cell phone and $40.
Within 24 hours, Prince George's County Police, along with Metropolitan police, were able to locate Randolph by tracking the cell phone. Police said after being arrested Randolph admitted to his involvement in the sexual assault.
“Mr. Randolph brutally attacked and violated the victim in this case and then continued to emotionally terrorize her after the physical assault ended,” Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Angela Alsobrooks said. “Due to the nature of his actions and the pain and trauma he inflicted on the victim, he deserved a sentence above his guidelines and we are pleased that the judge agreed with us.”
Randolph has an extensive police record in Maryland dating back to 2002. He also has been arrested multiple times in the District of Columbia for domestic violence.
