A man was sentenced to at least 60 years in prison for two rape cases that happened over 30 years ago, according to a release from the District Attorney's Office.
Friday, a jury found Roger Dale Honeycutt, 62, guilty in connection with the 1981 rapes of two women in Charlotte.
Honeycutt was tried for two counts of second-degree rape, two counts of second-degree sex offense, and two counts of first-degree burglary. The jury convicted him of all charges.
On January 24, 1981, Honeycutt entered the first victim's home, covered her mouth with his hand and then raped her, the release states.
Less than a month later, on February 21, 1981, Honeycutt entered another victim's home and raped her while her family slept upstairs. The victim was pregnant at the time of the assault.
Honeycutt told both women he wouldn't hurt them if they didn't scream, officials said.
Honeycutt was connected to the crimes decades later when the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department's Sexual Assault Cold Case Unit found that DNA evidence in the sexual assaults matched Honeycutt's DNA, which had been entered into a national database.
Officials said that because the offenses occurred in 1981, Honeycutt had to be sentenced under the Fair Sentencing Act, which preceded the current sentencing system in North Carolina that was established by the Structured Sentencing Act.
Honeycutt was sentenced to 10 to 20 years each for the Second-degree rape and Second-degree sex offense charges, and 10 to 30 years each for the First-degree burglary charges.
