Thirty-four year old Kenrick Domingo, also known as “Buck Dougal”, a resident of Courtenay’s Crescent who had fifty-nine previous convictions on various offences, received his sixtieth yesterday when a jury of nine found him guilty of rape. Domingo was sentenced to ten years in prison by Justice Troadio Gonzalez, who stipulated that the sentence should run consecutive to sentences Domingo is currently serving for convictions on charges of robbery and aggravated assault in an indecent manner. The rape occurred on the morning of August thirty-first, 2003 in the yard of a residence located on West Collect Canal. The victim, a twenty-three year old woman, testified that Domingo came from behind her, put a choke hold on her neck and dragged her into the yard. After she refused to cooperate, Domingo pulled off her clothes and forced her to engage in sex. After the rape Domingo threatened to kill her if she told anyone. Domingo, who was not represented by an attorney, denied that he committed the offence and said he was at home at the time. The prosecution, represented by Crown Counsel Kamar Henry, called four witnesses including the complainant. The trial began on Tuesday.
