MINEOLA, N.Y. – Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas announced that a Roosevelt man was sentenced to 20 years in prison and 20 years post-release supervision today for the brutal rape and assault of a woman in Freeport in September 2018.
Ever Martinez-Reyes, 25, pleaded guilty on September 26 before Judge Teresa Corrigan to two counts of Rape in the First Degree (a B violent felony), two counts of Sexual Abuse in the First Degree (a D violent felony) and four counts of Assault in the Second Degree (a D violent felony). As part of the plea, he must also register as a sex offender at the time of his release from prison.
“This defendant showed no mercy when he brutally attacked and sexually assaulted a woman just steps from her front door,” DA Singas said. “After an extensive manhunt by our law enforcement partners this defendant was arrested and thanks to my prosecutors this predator will now spend the next 20 years of his life behind bars.”
DA Singas said that on September 28, 2018, at approximately 2 a.m., the defendant followed the victim down a Freeport street, struck her in the face, and rendered her unconscious. The defendant then dragged the woman to the side of her front lawn and repeatedly punched and kicked her about the face. While the victim was unconscious, the defendant sexually assaulted her. The attack ended when the woman regained consciousness and fought off her assailant.
The defendant was arrested on October 5, 2018, by members of the Nassau County Police Department. The Freeport Police Department assisted in the investigation.
Senior Litigation Counsel Emma Slane of DA Singas’ Special Victims Bureau is prosecuting this case. Joseph LoPiccolo, Esq. represents the defendant.
