  • Mr. Alexander (DOB 3/23/93) on June 14, 2016, in Division 12, entered into a guilty plea to all charges.  On November 28, 2011, he had approached a female in the parking lot of the Speedway at 8325 Preston Highway and forced her into her car at gunpoint, sitting behind her.  While still pointing a gun at her, he told her to drive to Chase Bank on Preston Highway and withdraw money.  He then forced her to drive to 8000 Preston Highway, climbed into the front passenger seat, put the gun to her head, forced her to perform oral sodomy on him and then vaginally raped her.  The case was without a suspect until Mr. Alexander was convicted on other charges and his DNA entered into the CODIS system; a match to the DNA in the rape kit was made in 2014, and this prosecution commenced.  After hearing his plea, the Court sentenced him to a term of fifteen years.  Elizabeth Jones Brown was the prosecutor.
