District Man Pleads Guilty to Sexually Assaulting Woman
In Attack Following a Gathering at Her Apartment
-Victim Was Unconscious at Time of Assault-

     WASHINGTON – Antawon Randall, 28, of Capital Heights, Md., has pled guilty to charges stemming from a sexual assault that he committed against a woman who was unconscious in her own home, U.S. Attorney Ronald C. Machen Jr. announced today.

     Randall pled guilty on July 25, 2013, in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia to charges of second-degree sexual abuse and fourth-degree sexual abuse. The Honorable Ronna L. Beck scheduled sentencing for Oct. 11, 2013.  Randall faces a statutory maximum of 20 years for the charges.  He must also register as a sex offender for at least 10 years.

     According to the government’s evidence, on Sept. 8, 2012, the victim and her husband hosted a gathering at their apartment in Southeast Washington.  At some point during the gathering, the victim became sick from consuming too much alcohol and passed out.

     When the victim’s husband went to work, Randall snuck into her bedroom and sexually assaulted her while she was unconscious.

     In announcing the plea, U.S. Attorney Machen commended the work performed by those who investigated the case from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Sexual Assault Unit.  He also praised those who handled the case for the U.S. Attorney’s Office, including Paralegal Specialist D’Yvonne Key and Assistant U.S. Attorney Mervin A. Bourne, Jr., who investigated and prosecuted the matter.
