Recently, police arrested 33-year old Kennith Robinson for the 2007 incident.
According to police reports, Robinson had been 22 years old when he raped the woman and lived across the street from the location where the crime occurred. While at a party, the victim had fallen asleep in her vehicle and woke to find a man forcing himself on her.
After reporting the incident, the women underwent a sexual assault examination.
The report was not sent to the Florida Police Department of Law Enforcement until July 2018.
In October 2018, police confirmed that one man, the friend of the victim, had revealed that “Scooter,” his neighbor who lived across the street, bragged about having sex with the woman.
Police have singled out this case as evidence of rape kit backlogs.
Sex Crimes in JacksonvilleOverall, rape is one of the most serious crimes in the State of Florida and is automatically tagged as a felony, no longer being separated from sexual battery charges. To prove a rape crime, court officials must provide evidence of the sexual act (oral, anal, or vaginal) with a victim against this individual’s will. If a rape victim is a minor, the culprit can face charges of statutory rape.
