BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - A Buffalo man who terrorized local college students is going to prison for the next ten years.
Kahlil Peoples, 30, was sentenced Tuesday for breaking into homes near Canisius College and Buffalo State and sexually assaulting two female students. Police arrested him last summer when a public safety officer caught him peeping through a window.
Erie County Court Judge Kenneth Case told Peoples Tuesday, he deserves to be locked up.
"When you see what happened in Boston yesterday, you just think, 'What happened to decency?' And, 'Don't we have enough suffering because of people like you?' We don't need more hurt and suffering of innocent people anywhere," Case stated.
Authorities say DNA evidence tied Peoples to the crimes.
Police say they had the wrong man, and that Jerome Thagard, who spent four years in prison, didn't murder Steven Northrup in 2009. But the victim's family says otherwise.
