MAN GETS 50 YEARS IN ’96 RAPE OF TWO
Leroy Johnson, a 39 year old unrepentant sex fiend who raped Top Gun actress Kelly McGillis two decades ago, committed his first knifepoint rape at age 13. Only two years later, he tuned his knife on McGillis, savagely raping her and her roommate in their Upper West Side apartment.
A woman prosecutors say was raped by Johnson testified he told her he'd kill her if she didn't hurry up - and maybe he'd kill me anyway. I know what I'm doing is wrong, he allegedly told the 22 year old's roommate as he alternately raped and sodomized her at knifepoint in her West Village apartment. My mother raised me better than this. The attack happened almost 10 years ago, on November 18, 1996, but neither of the victims will ever forget it.
Johnson was told that whatever he said could be used against him a court of law and on June 12, 2006, it was. I haven't robbed nobody, raped nobody since...been around, its been three and a half years, a detective testified Johnson told him after his arrest on double rape charges last year.
Johnson was convicted of raping the women and could be sent to prison for 50 years.
On June 27, 2006, Johnson was sentenced to 50 years in prison.
