Serial rapist, Patrick Green, has been sentenced to 40 years in prison for the rape of five females in Irwin Point, St James.
Patrick Green, the man who on Monday pleaded guilty to the 2012 rape of five females, including an eight year-old girl in Irwin Point in this parish, was yesterday sentenced to 40 years in prison when he appeared in the Western Regional Gun Court.
As part of the sentence handed down by Justice Martin Gayle, the 27-year-old Green — who has been labelled a serial rapist of a May Pen, Clarendon, address — is expected to continue receiving psychiatric treatment.
Green, who had been in custody in relation to several similar unsolved offences committed in western Jamaica, Clarendon and other sections of the island, was charged in January of this year after his DNA matched samples found by investigators at the Irwin Point crime scene. Twelve charges were laid against him as a result.
Green was arrested and charged last September after his DNA matched samples investigators found at the scene of the rape.
Following the guilty plea on Monday, the director of public prosecutions entered a nolle-prosequi in relation to 10 other matters against Green, meaning those matters have been discontinued. Six of those matters were of a sexual nature.
He was convicted and sentenced in the past for other offences, including rape.
Two brothers, Kerron and Sheldon Brissett, were initially prosecuted for the crime but were later freed after DNA tests did not return a match.
On September 24, 2012, men armed with guns invaded a house with five females, including an eight-year-old girl.
The females were taken to an open lot where they were sexually assaulted.
The incident generated widespread condemnation. Green has previously served time for rapes he committed in Clarendon.
