A Brooklyn man Devone Jefferys, 28, has been slammed with 18 1/2 years in prison for posing as an NYPD cop member to rob a drug dealer, and then rape the sister of the drug pusher.
The criminal who goes by the nickname “Moneybags” was charged and convicted of the trial of robbery conspiracy, attempted robbery of heroin and cash, and the unlawful use and possession of a firearm for the July 31, 2015, home invasion and rape in Williamsburg, Brooklyn according to reports.
Moneybags is a reputed Bloods gang member, his co-defendant impersonated police officers when they both stormed the apartment, pointing their guns at a pregnant woman who was already in labor and the dealer’s mother and sister.
Moneybags and his partner ordered them to lie on the floor and bound them with duct tape. Jefferys ransacked the apartment in search of drugs and money, while he and his friend maintained aiming their guns at the victims’ heads and the pregnant woman’s stomach.
Shortly after Jefferys realized that the drug dealer’s sister threw a bag of heroin out of a window, he immediately dragged her outside to an alleyway and raped her, according to federal prosecutors.
“Today’s substantial sentence will protect the community by incapacitating this violent predator, who inflicted injury and terror upon his victims before he was brought to justice,” Acting U.S. Attorney Seth DuCharme stated after U.S. District Judge Kiyo Matsumoto handed down the sentence in Brooklyn federal court.
