13 years for man in girl's rape

By The Frederick (Md.) News-Post

A Frederick man has been sentenced to 13 years in prison for the New Year's Eve rape of a 14-year-old girl.

Thirty-three-year-old Demond Coleman was also ordered to register as a child sex offender for life at Tuesday's sentencing.

At Coleman's trial last month, the girl, now 15, testified that she was hit in the face and told to be quiet during the attack. She did not report the rape until March 29.

In court on Tuesday, she called Coleman cruel, but said she will pray for him.

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned

What in Hades are you trying to say, joejack65? No woman was SCORNED in this article; a very young girl was ASSAULTED. A scorned woman is one who unsuccessfully makes romantic overtures towards a man. You can't be implying that happened in this case, can you?

And, to the Washington Post editors, don't you think a nice, full color, picture of Demond Coleman (and others of his ilk) would be a legitimately useful and vital piece of information for his potential future victims to have in order to avoid him once he's inevitably released?
