12 years for Md. sex attack attempt

By the Baltimore Sun

A man who broke into a woman's home and attempted to sexually assault her and her 6-year-old niece has been sentenced to 12 years in prison.

Nineteen-year-old Juan Carlos Conseco-Figueroa said through a translator at sentencing Monday in Anne Arundel County Circuit that he had asked God to forgive him for what he did.

Prosecutors say on Feb. 16, 2009, Conseco-Figueroa broke into a woman's apartment, threatened her with two knives in front of three children.

He cut the woman several times before she broke free. He took off a 6-year-old's clothes and forced her into a bedroom. Police broke the door down.

Conseco-Figueroa will be deported to Mexico at the end of his sentence.
