WHITE PLAINS – A man, said to be homeless in Yonkers, was sentenced to up to 25 years to life in state prison on his May conviction after trial for raping a woman at knifepoint.
On September 27, 2011, Christopher Earl, 44, went to the victim’s home and asked if he could wait there a few minutes until his brother, also the victim’s cousin, came to pick him up. She allowed Earl to enter her apartment and wait while she continued to prepare dinner for her and her three-year-old daughter.
As she continued to prepare dinner, Earl picked up a kitchen knife and threatened her, forcing her into her bedroom where he raped her.
He then fled the location and after a police manhunt, New Rochelle officers arrested him.
Earl had been convicted of predatory sexual assault, violent rape, three counts of sexual abuse and criminal possession of a weapon, all felonies, and misdemeanor endangering the welfare of a child.
