Jury seeks multiple 24-year sentences in 1991 rape of teen
KANSAS CITY (AP) - A Jackson County jury is recommending seven 24-year sentences for a Kansas man convicted of raping a 17-year-old girl more than two decades ago.
Prosecutors say 43-year-old Maurice Parnell Webber of Overland Park, Kansas, was found guilty last week of three counts of rape and four counts of sodomy for the 1991 assault of a woman in Kansas City's Swope Park. The same jury on Monday recommended the sentences.
Police say the victim was driving home from a concert and pulled over into an apartment complex parking lot to sleep. She says she awoke in a different car occupied by four males and was sexually assaulted by three of them.
Webber was linked to the assault through DNA. He is scheduled to be sentenced next month.
