Up to life for predatory sexual assault and rape

ALBANY – A Niskayuna man was sentenced to 22 years to Life in State Prison in Albany County Supreme Court this morning.  On April 4 Salam Al Haideri, 24, was found guilty following a jury trial of one count of predatory sexual assault and one count of rape in the first degree. Both crimes are felonies. 

The Court additionally sentenced Al Haideri to 22 years in State Prison, to be followed by 20 years of Post Release Supervision, on the First Degree Rape charge to be served concurrent to the 22 years to Life in State Prison sentence on the Predatory Sexual Assault charge.

On June 2, 2013 in the area of Central Avenue and Vly Road in the Town of Colonie, the defendant forcibly raped a 19 year old victim by a dumpster behind a pizza shop.  During the assault Al Haideri repeatedly slammed the victim’s face in to the ground.

The victim suffered multiple physical injuries during the assault including a fractured orbital bone, fractured nose and broken ribs.
