CSAO: 30-Year Sentence in New Britain Sexual Assault

30-Year Sentence in New Britain Sexual Assault

A New Britain man was sentenced today to serve 30 years incarceration for a 2006 sexual assault.

Luis Rodriguez, age 36, was sentenced by Judge Julia DiCocco Dewey in New Britain Superior Court, where he was convicted by a jury on March 16, 2018, of three counts of Sexual Assault in the First Degree.

He was charged in an April 30, 2006, incident where a woman walking on Lafayette street in New Britain was forced into a car by two males. They drove her to the area of Marimac road and repeatedly sexually assaulted her. 

The case was solved thanks to the diligence of the New Britain Police Department and the state Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection Forensic Science Laboratory.

In 2016, a DNA database search conducted by the Forensic Science Laboratory identified Rodriguez as a suspect. A confirmatory sample was subsequently obtained by the New Britain Police Department and Rodriguez’s DNA was found to be consistent with genetic material recovered from the victim in 2006.

The case was prosecuted by Senior Assistant State’s Attorney Brett J. Salafia.
