Man sentenced to 20 years for attempted rape, kidnapping

  • Follow Crime & courts

An Augusta man who attacked a woman after hiding in the back of her vehicle pleaded guilty Friday to kidnapping and attempted rape.

Jairo Rosas, 23, was charged with rape and kidnapping after the Jan. 9, 2012, attack. Assistant District At­tor­ney Sam Nicholson said Fri­day that he agreed to reduce the rape charge to ensure a conviction and prison sentence.

Richmond County Super­ior Court Judge Michael N. Annis sentenced Rosas to 20 years in prison. Because Rosas is not a U.S. citizen, he could face deportation when he is released.

Last year, the woman finished her shift at a Wrights­boro Road restaurant and drove a couple of co-workers home before heading home herself. After she was alone, Nich­ol­son said, Rosas forced his way into the driver’s seat and drove to a wooded area near the airport. The woman told investigators that Rosas raped her and drove her home.

Rosas had a previous conviction of contributing to the delinquency of a minor in 2009, Nicholson said.

According to the sex offender registry law, a person convicted of aggravated assault with intent to rape must register as a sex offender.

There are plenty of responsible legal visitors in the United States who

are also :
" not U. S. citizens "

You do them a diservice lumping this human debris in them .

He is either here legal , or illegal , one ?

This is one instance where the absolute lowest common denominator

needs to be made known .

We should have a prisoner

We should have a prisoner exchange program where we swap one of theirs for one of ours. Let them rot in their own nasty jails and bring American's back to American prisons.

Mr. Nicholson. It wasn't "attempted rape" if he actually raped her. He should have been prosecuted and convicted of RAPE and KIDNAPPING and he should have gotten sentenced to 50 years with NO CHANCE OF PAROLE so that he would be so old when he got out his little thingy would only work as a water spout.....maybe if he was lucky.

Rape
Unpublished

I was once charged with attempted rape. Due to my extended age the charge was reduced to assault with a dead weapon.

More Jail Time

I agree with dichotomy, He should have been brought to trial or if he pleaded only maybe get 5 years off. He should have had 50 years or 25 with a castration.
