N.Y. man gets life for 1991 Md. rape after DNA test
A convicted New York rapist has been sentenced to life for a 1991 Maryland rape that was solved in 2008 through DNA testing.
Sixty-eight-year-old Leslie Maize was sentenced Tuesday in Worcester County Circuit Court.
Maize of Gowanda, N.Y., was convicted earlier this year of first- and second-degree rape, assault with intent to rape and first-degree burglary.
The conviction came after investigators came across the sexual assault kit from the victim and noticed it hadn't been added to a national criminal DNA database. Once it was added, investigators were led to Maize.
Maize will begin serving the Maryland sentence after he is released from prison in New York, where he was convicted of a 1993 rape.
