WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A Wichita man has been sentenced to 10 years and nine months in prison for his role in the rape and robbery of a 76-year-old woman.

A Sedgwick County judge on Thursday handed down the punishment to 19-year-old John Thompson Jr. He pleaded guilty in July to aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary and attempted kidnapping for the June 2013 crimes.

Thompson was also ordered to pay $3,750 in restitution.

His co-defendant, 18-year-old Marquatesz Redmon, was convicted last week of rape and six other charges. Redmon was a minor when the crimes were committed but was tried as an adult. He will be sentenced in November.

Police say the teens broke into the woman’s home and robbed her. She was sexually assaulted at gunpoint and authorities used DNA samples to help prosecute the men.
