Teen sentenced for home invasion, rape

HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - A Butler County teenager was sentenced to 31 years in prison for his involvement in a home invasion and rape of a Middletown woman.

Michael Miles, 17, who was bound over from juvenile court, pled guilty to charges of aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary, kidnapping and rape, with firearm specifications.

Police say Miles, along with co-defendants, Jad Holmes, 20, and Cory Isreal, 19, all of Middletown, forced their way into the victim's home on Arlington Avenue at gunpoint wearing masks. The victim, in her early twenties, was robbed and raped. According to the prosecutor's office, the sexual assault nurse described the injuries sustained by the victim as the worst she'd seen in her career.

"A home invasion by three guys, resulting in the brutality of rape, is the kind of horror that nightmares are made of," said Butler County Prosecutor Robin Piper. "Some criminals are just blood-thirsty cannibals who need to be put away. Miles deserves every day of his 31 years in prison."

Cory Isreal has received a 43-year sentence for his involvement. Holmes is scheduled to be sentenced by Judge Noah Powers on August 24, 2010.
