An Akron teen was sentenced on Wednesday to 11 years in prison after breaking into an apartment and robbing a young woman.
Doriante Sutton, 19, pled guilty in January to two charges -- Aggravated Burglary with Gun Specification and Robbery, both felonies.
Sutton and an accomplice broke into an apartment in Akron’s Highland Square neighborhood August 11. While Sutton ransacked the home, a 16-year-old accomplice held the victim at gunpoint and sexually assaulted her.
As Akron police were investigating the incident, Sutton reportedly drove by the apartment in the victim’s stolen vehicle, prompting officers to chase and apprehend him shortly afterwards.
Sutton’s unidentified accomplice faces charges of Aggravated Robbery, Aggravated Burglary, Abduction, Gross Sexual Imposition, Theft, and Carrying a Concealed Weapon.
He’s scheduled to appear in juvenile court on March 11. If found guilty of all charges, he could receive a maximum sentence of five years.
