A Kingston man who was found guilty of raping a 92-year-old woman has been sentenced to 30 years in prison.

Justice Vinnette Graham-Allen who handed down the sentence in the Home Circuit Court,ordered that 40-year-old Nigel Robinson must serve 25 years in prison before he is eligible for parole.

Prosecutors showed evidence that Robinson and the elderly woman lived at the same premises in the Kingston five area.

According to the evidence, he entered her home some time between July 1 and August 4, 2014, removed her from a bed, placed her on the floor and raped her.

Prosecutors say the woman reported the incident to the police and later pointed out Robinson to investigators.

Robinson was found guilty by a seven-member jury after a near two week trial that ended on April 11 this year.
