JASON QUINONES SENTENCED TO 20 YEARS IN PRISON FOR TWO UPPER EAST SIDE SEXUAL ASSAULTS LAST SUMMER

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance, Jr., announced the sentencing of JASON QUINONES, 22, to 20 years in prison and 10 years of post-release supervision for raping a woman in her East 90th Street apartment on August 13, 2011, and for sexually abusing another woman in her East 83rd Street apartment on July 2, 2011. On May 8, 2012, QUINONES pleaded guilty to Rape in the First Degree and Sexual Abuse in the First Degree.

“The defendant sexually assaulted two victims in their own homes, violating their sense of security in the place where they should feel most safe,” said District Attorney Vance. “I commend the victims for their bravery in coming forward, and hope that today’s sentencing gives them a measure of closure.”

According to the defendant’s guilty plea and documents filed in court, at approximately 4:30 a.m. on August 13, 2011, QUINONES crawled into the victim’s ground-floor window at her apartment building on East 90th Street, while she slept. The defendant took the victim’s cell phone to prevent her from calling the police, and then he raped her.

In a separate incident, at approximately 3 a.m. on July 2, 2011, QUINONES approached a victim from behind in her apartment building on East 83rd Street. QUINONES followed the victim into her apartment, despite her refusal to let him enter. He then pushed her onto a couch and sexually abused her.

Assistant District Attorney Samuel David prosecuted the case under the supervision of Martha Bashford, Chief of the Sex Crimes Unit; and Audrey Moore, Chief of the Special Victims Bureau.
