Sep. 09, 2015
HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (AP) — A South Florida man is facing a possible life sentence for his part in the brutal beating and rape of a teenage girl.
A Broward County jury found 20-year-old Jayvon Woolfork guilty Tuesday of sexual battery and kidnapping. His sentencing is scheduled for next month.
Four teens — two girls and two boys — previously accepted plea deals in the attack. The South Florida Sun Sentinel (http://goo.gl/oSOaxj ) reports they each received two years in prison.
Authorities say the girls invited the then-16-year-old high school student to a Hollywood home, about 18 miles north of Miami, in November 2013 and beat her until she agreed to have sex with Woolfork. Parts of the six-hour attack were recorded on a cellphone.
Woolfork previously rejected two plea deals that would have sent him to prison for 10 years or 15 years.
