A man learned Friday he will spend more than 42 years in prison for a 2011 attack on a woman in Charlotte.
Jurors found 46-year-old Doran Arthur Atkins guilty of first-degree rape, first-degree sex offense, second-degree sex offense, first-degree kidnapping, assault by strangulation, and assault on a female.
The judge sentenced Atkins to 509-640 months in prison, which comes out to more than 42 years. Upon release, the judge ordered Atkins be placed on satellite-based monitoring for the rest of his life.
Atkins' conviction stems from February 26-27, 2011. That's when he and his girlfriend got into an argument. Atkins accused the woman of cheating on him. He pulled her into an alley, where he beat and strangled her. Then Atkins dragged the woman under a bridge near uptown Charlotte, where he put a belt around her throat and strangled her some more. When the belt broke, he used his hands. He then sexually assaulted and raped her.
The woman survived and testified at trial. The DA says she was fearful of Atkins, but she testified anyway because she didn't want to see another woman hurt by him. Copyright 2013 WBTV. All rights reserved.
