Chicago man gets 54-year sentence for raping his 91-year-old neighbor while on parole

Chicago — A Cook County judge has sentenced a Chicago man to 54 years in prison for raping and violently attacking his 91-year-old neighbor while on parole in 2019. If Londre Brown behaves himself in prison, he’ll be released shortly after his 101st birthday.

A jury convicted Brown in December of two counts of aggravated criminal sexual assault causing bodily harm and one count of aggravated battery of a senior citizen. Last week, Judge Peggy Chiampas handed down his sentence: 27 years for each count of sexual assault to be served consecutively, plus a concurrent 10-year sentence for the aggravated battery, according to court records.

Brown was released from prison in August 2019 after satisfying half of a one-year sentence that he received for aggravated assault of a peace officer.

Four months later, just before Christmas, he allegedly entered his 91-year-old neighbor’s apartment on the 1200 block of South Throop around 8 p.m.

He punched the woman in her face, knocking her to the ground, and then raped her, prosecutors said. He bit the woman repeatedly on her face and thighs during the attack, then fled.

Chicago police officers who responded to a 911 call found Brown nearby, and the woman identified him as the attacker, according to officials.

Brown reported to Stateville Correctional Center on Tuesday. He is scheduled to be released on October 19, 2065, two months after his 101st birthday.
