Minnesota Man Sentenced for Raping Burglary Victim

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – A Minnesota man has been sentenced to more than 25 years in prison for raping a woman he had previously burglarized.

Eighteen-year-old Curtez Deshawn Graham of St. Paul was sentenced Tuesday.

Prosecutor C. Ryan Tennison said in court that Graham “earned every day of this lengthy prison sentence.”

Defense attorney Murad Mohammad says Graham never minimized or deflected his behavior.

Reports say Graham pleaded guilty Sept. 30 to first-degree criminal sexual conduct, first-degree burglary and kidnapping.

Authorities say Graham was on furlough from prison when removed an ankle bracelet that monitored his whereabouts, returned to the home of his prior burglary victim and raped her.

The victim told police that Graham was mad with her because she sent him away for 14 months.
