Young man sentenced in sexual assault

Posted: Tuesday, January 05, 2010

ANCHORAGE - An Anchorage man convicted of raping his mother's elderly friend has been sentenced to 32 years in prison.

Prosecutors say 22-year-old Romeo Iyapana choked the man and sexually assaulted him in September 2007.

At last week's sentencing, Judge Jack Smith said Iyapana showed little or no remorse for what he had done.

Iyapana was also ordered to spend 15 years on probation and will have to register as a sex offender for life.
