Sentenced to 14 Years for Attacking 64-Year-Old Woman in Norwood
Bronx District Attorney Darcel D. Clark said, “The defendant forced himself into the victim’s apartment and raped her while threatening to kill her. Today’s sentence keeps a dangerous sexual predator off our streets.”
District Attorney Clark said the defendant, Unga Smith, 41, who was living in the Bronx Psychiatric Center at the time, was sentenced to 14 years in prison and 20 years post-release supervision by Bronx Supreme Court Justice Ralph Fabrizio.
Smith will continue to be registered as a sex offender upon his release from incarceration. The defendant pleaded guilty to first-degree Rape on January 24, 2019.
According to the investigation, on the evening of January 8, 2018, inside a building in Norwood, the defendant raped the victim inside her apartment.
Video surveillance showed Smith following the victim into her building and elevator. He then forcefully entered her apartment, dragged her into her bedroom and engaged in multiple sexual acts with her.
Smith intimidated the victim by telling her he had a gun and that he would kill her.
