Man Gets 35 Years for Attacks on 5 Women

October 06, 2000|CAITLIN LIU

A man convicted of sexually assaulting women and forcing them to withdraw money from automatic teller machines was sentenced Thursday to 35 years in prison, according to court officials.

Paul Brown of North Hollywood had pleaded no contest to robbery and forcible sexual assault for the attacks on five women, four of them from North Hollywood and one from Hollywood, during February and March 1998, Deputy Dist. Atty. Alan Yochelson said. The 23-year-old man was sentenced by Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Michael Hoff.

At his sentencing, two of the victims spoke. One woman "condemned him for the pain he caused the victims and the pain he caused his own family," who sat in the courtroom audience, Yochelson said.

A co-defendant, 24-year-old Tyshika Roberts of Los Angeles, has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to charges of robbery, kidnapping, rape and sexual assault.

Yochelson said Brown won't be eligible for parole for almost 30 years.
