Thug Justin Washington, 25 Offered Light Sentence For Allegedly Carrying Out Five Sex-Related Attacks Was Awaiting Sentencing For Another Sex Charge At The Time
On September 15, Justin Washington, 25, allegedly attacked four women and a man near a homeless shelter where he was residing in the Bronx. According to the New York Post, Washington initially climbed through a window and groped an 18-year-old man’s buttocks while demanding money before fleeing empty-handed.
A woman apparently saw Washington masturbating on a fire escape while pounding on the window of her apartment around 40 minutes later. Shortly after, according to sources who spoke to the New York Post, Washington broke into another apartment in the same building and attempted to rape a different woman.
The alleged victim bit scratched and hit Washington in the head with a hammer during the alleged attempt at rape. Washington allegedly masturbated and grabbed a pair of panties from another woman’s bathroom around 15 minutes later.
The Post claims that the last victim of Washington’s crime was a homeless lady who was found sleeping in the foyer of the apartment complex where the underwear theft took place. According to reports, he molested the woman by pulling down her pants, caressing her buttocks, and masturbating in front of the camera.
Washington was arrested at a homeless shelter two days later. He is charged with attempted rape, burglary, forcible touching, and a sexually-motivated felony.
Law enforcement sources told the Post that at the time of last week’s incident, Washington was awaiting sentencing for a rape involving a teen relative. Washington was arrested in February after the victim said he sexually assaulted her while they watched television.
While Washington was originally charged with first-degree rape and first-degree sexual abuse, the charges were downgraded to third-degree rape after prosecutors determined they had insufficient evidence. The Post reported that his bail was reduced from $25,000 to $12,000.
In August, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg offered Washington a plea deal that required him to plead guilty to second-degree coercion in exchange for a 30-day jail sentence and five years of probation. He would not have to register as a sex offender, according to the news outlet.
Washington was to be sentenced a week before the September 15 incident in the Bronx. Bragg’s office is reportedly reconsidering the plea deal in light of his latest arrest. That case has been postponed until September 28, The Post reported.
Washington remains jailed on $50,000 bail.
