Dumas Behind Bars 

On Monday, a judge sentenced Albert Dumas to40 years behind bars, but Dumas could serve only 34 years with good time. He’d remain on probabtion until he’s 80.

Dumas grabbed a teenager last August, at knifepoint. He bound her wrists, threatened to kill her, then raped her several times.

District Attorney Evert Fowle is pleased with Justice Nancy Mills’ decision and says there’s not a single person who deserves the sentence more than Albert Dumas Junior. Fowle adds, the victim’s courage and intelligence was key in this conviction.

The young girls parents addressed the court Monday, pleading with Justice Mills to impose the harshest sentence possible.
