A man who raped a disabled woman in a care center has been sentenced to ten years in prison.
Brian Sundin, 58, was sentenced on Wednesday, more than 15 years after the crime had taken place in Ohio.
Prosecutor David Fornshell says the 2000 rape case was unsolved for 16 years until the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation tested the 29-year-old woman’s diaper and found DNA that matched Sundin’s DNA profile.
Sundin was indicted this year and pleaded guilty to a rape charge in October.
The woman was nonverbal and required total support at the time she was assaulted. She died in 2011.
Fornshell says Sundin is believed to have entered the facility through an unsecured door.
Two other members of the care home are believed to have witnesses the crime.
The alarm was raised after a nurse discovered the woman with blood seeping from her diaper.
She was taken to hospital and underwent a rape test which confirmed she had been assaulted.
Semen was sent off to the FBI for testing, but the case went cold.
Sundin was constantly in trouble with the law. Years after the rape, he was caught selling $50 of cannabis to an undercover cop. He was later arrested for assaulting his live-in girlfriend’s 14-year-old son.
He would hide under his brother’s name when authorities were after him.
When officers ran his DNA through the system, it came up as a match for the rape case.
He was indicted earlier this year.
