Rapist Who Taunted Victim Over Lasting Impact Of Being Raped Sentenced

An Alaska man who used deception, from posing as a retired Marine to pretending to have stomach cramps, in order to get his victim where he could rape her was convicted.

When Edward Pezel held down and raped a 22-year-old member of the U.S. Air Force last May, he told the woman how the rape would affect her. Pezel told the woman that she would think about it every day.

He was right.

Now Pezel, 42, has a 20-year prison sentence to also think about the rape. In an emotion-filled hearing at the Rabinowitz Courthouse on Tuesday, Superior Court Judge Robert Downes imposed the punishment along with another 10 years of suspended time.

From the way he so easily used deception throughout the process of this crime I doubt this is this man's first rape even though this was the first time he was charged with rape.
