A 19-year-old man convicted of raping and assaulting a woman during a burglary at her Stevenson Ranch home was sentenced Monday to 43 years to life in state prison.
Jerry Moon was sentenced in San Fernando by Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Lloyd Nash as part of a plea deal agreed upon in December, said Deputy Dist. Atty Julie Kramer.
The woman was assaulted after Moon, who lived in Stevenson Ranch, broke into her home on Jan. 8, 2012. Los Angeles County sheriff's detectives arrested Moon about a month afterward and he has remained in custody.
Moon pleaded guilty to rape and sexual assault charges and admitted that the victim was tied up while he committed the crimes. He also admitted the sexual assaults occurred during a burglary.
