Georgia Teen Gets Life Plus 110 years for Burglary, Rape

Published January 23, 2009

A Georgia teen convicted of nine burglaries and the rape of a 15-year-old girl was sentenced to life in prison plus 110 years.

Darrian Bryant was a 17-year-old Parkview High School student when he was arrested for the crimes two years ago. Prosecutors charged Bryant in connection with nine daytime burglaries in Stone Mountain between June 2006 and March 2007; one of the break-ins involved the brutal rape of a 15-year-old girl.

Assistant District Attorney Dawn Taylor said the girl was attacked after getting off the school bus and entering her home alone on March 28, 2007. She said that a masked man put a bag over her head, bound her arms and legs and raped her, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

“He then led her around the house, shoving her into walls and smashing a vase over her head,” the paper reported.

Bryant never denied his involvement in most of the burglaries, but he said he never broke into the girl’s house or raped her.
