Woonsocket man draws 24 years for 2 rapes

October 17, 2012

PROVIDENCE (AP) — Rhode Island Attorney General Peter Kilmartin's office says a Woonsocket man has been sentenced to 24 years in prison after pleading guilty to sexual assault in two rape cases that had been unsolved for several years.
Armand Ferrio received a total of 40 years, with the balance suspended with probation.
The 25-year-old Ferrio must have no contact with the victims, undergo sex-offender counseling and register as a sex offender when released from the Adult Correctional Institutions.
Kilmartin's office says DNA led authorities to solve the cases.
Authorities say Ferrio raped a woman on the side of a road by a railroad track in Woonsocket in 2004 and raped a woman in her Woonsocket home in 2009.
