Annapolis man gets 20 years for 2000 rape
A man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for raping a woman in Annapolis in 2000.
Twenty-seven-year-old Michael Albert Brandford of Annapolis had pleaded guilty to second-degree rape. He was sentenced on Monday and will be required to register as a sex offender when he is released.
Prosecutors say Brandford, masked and wielding a handgun, accosted the victim outside her home on Aug. 26, 2000. He forced to walk behind some homes, ordered her to disrobe and raped her.
Police found a condom with DNA evidence at the scene, but a match was not made for years because Brandford's DNA was not on file until he was convicted of a burglary charge in 2008.
