White Plains Man Gets 13 Years to Life in Knifepoint Rape

Woman attacked walking home from work in White Plains.

A White Plains man who admitted the knifepoint rape of a woman in White Plains in March has been sentenced to 13 years to life in state prison.

Alberto Gomez Ojeda, 29, of 125 Lake St., who arrested on April 1 following the March 30 attack, pleaded guilty in Westchester County Court in White Plains to first-degre predatory sexual assault.

The attack took place shortly after midnight as the 26-year-old female victim was walking home alone from work in the are of Lake Street in White Plains. Ojeda was accused of putting a knife against the victim's throat and face, then dragging her down a darkened driveway.

Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore said Ojeda sexually assaulted and raped the victim at knifepoint, and then left the area. She said White Plains police were immediately notified of the attack and conducted a search of the area for the attacker.

"It is every woman's nightmare to be walking home from work and accosted at knifepoint and forcibly raped," DiFiore said. "Aggressive detective work and forensics quickly tied this defendant to the crime, leading to his arrest and conviction."

Assistant District Attorney Wendy Parra of the Sex Crimes Bureau prosecuted the case.

Karen Foricble rape is not a term or words that Janet Difore just picked out of the top of her head.. its a legal term ... "In some jurisdictions, the term "rape" has been phased out of legal use " GOOGLE i do agree its silly and offensive.. but its a legal term and not one she just decided to say......
