Buffalo man sentenced to 8 years for brutal rape


BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A man who followed a couple home and then brutally raped and sodomized a female in front of her boyfriend is going to spend nearly a decade behind bars.

Police in Amherst say Darrell Carthon, a 25-year-old Buffalo man, and an accomplice followed a Williamsville couple home from a drug deal in 2013. Police say he followed the young woman and her boyfriend back to their Williamsville home for several miles.

As the young couple entered the home, police say the two men held up the couple with guns and raped the female and sodomized her before leaving. Her boyfriend reportedly could only look on while terrified.

Carthon admitted to the crimes to Amherst Police and pleaded guilty to lesser charges of first degree attempted rape and first degree attempted robbery. Friday a judge sentenced him to eight years behind bars with seven years of post-release supervision.
