Rapist gets life

No break for man who sodomized elderly victim

COURT TODAY BLOCKCarl Robert Maloney will have to spend the rest of his life in jail for the brutal rape of an 80-year-old woman back in 2011.

Earlier this week, the Court of Appeal, led by Chief Justice Sir Marston Gibson, dismissed Maloney’s appeal of the 2012 sentence handed down to him by Justice Margaret Reifer.

Justices Sandra Mason and Kaye Goodridge also comprised the panel with Sir Marston, which heard the matter on March 30 this year.

At that time, Maloney’s attorney Rita Evans conceded that the crime was “an atrocious one”.

However, she contended that the sentence of life imprisonment was too harsh and suggested that a 25-year jail term was more appropriate for her client, who had pleaded guilty to the charge of rape and had expressed remorse for his actions.

Appearing on behalf of the Crown, Donna Babb-Agard, QC, argued that a life sentence was neither imposed “lightly” nor “frequently”, adding that when it occurs, the circumstances leading to it must be carefully examined.

Babb-Agard referred to the seriousness of the offence and submitted that a sentence of 25 years would neither be in the interest of justice nor the vulnerable elderly.

Based on the facts presented in the case, Maloney’s elderly victim had suffered a stroke six years before the incident and could only move around with the assistance of a walker.

On the night of September 3, 2011, the 80-year-old woman, who was a pastor and a virgin, secured her home as best as she could and went to bed around 8 p.m.

Early the following morning, she was awoken by the sound of her front door opening before she saw a shadow in her bedroom and soon after a naked man jumped on top of her.

As she tried to fight him off, the woman screamed for help and begged for mercy. However, she was overpowered by Maloney who raped her both vaginally and anally.

He also told her: “I does do this to old people. . . . I was watching you . . . . I love you.”

The victim fell into an unconscious state during the ordeal, but reported the matter to police after she regained consciousness.

When police arrived at Maloney’s home to investigate the matter, he told them: “I know that wunna did coming for me, I know that it ‘bout the old woman ‘cause I rape she.”

Asked why he had committed the offence, Maloney replied: “I did want some sex . . . I rape one old lady before you know.”

Maloney had been convicted and sentenced for raping a 65-year-old woman in 2009.

While describing the events as “distasteful and shocking”, the trial judge said she considered that the offence was serious and violent, and deserving of a long custodial sentence.

Justice Reifer took into consideration when sentencing the fact that Maloney had quickly admitted to the offence, cooperated fully with the police and pleaded guilty at the earliest opportunity.

Howebver, she felt that Maloney, who was 36 years old at the time, posed a real threat to society; therefore sentencing him to life in prison was one way of protecting society from him.

      No Prince Trémaine , I said exactly what I meant. And meant exactly what I said.

    I’m having some trouble with the facts. The prior rape happened in 2009, the article reports that he was sentenced for that but he was free to commit the later crime in 2011?

    Does this mean that despite the conviction he served less than 2 years? Or was he sentenced for the 2009 rape only after the 2011 offence for which he was convicted in 2012? I understand that a conviction can be recorded and the offender can receive bail pending appeal, but I am quite confused here.

    In any event, it sounds like an appropriate sentence has been confirmed. What a monstrous fiend.

    What kind of justice this is? Who in their right mind would do something this horrible? He was mad in 2009 and even madder in 2011 and he is at his maddest in 2016. Call a spade a spade and get this man in a mental institution and on drugs. What is the sense them put him in jail only to be back on the street in 10 years for good behaviour or whatever the reason they let out those criminals for earlier this year. He should spend the rest of his miserable life in a mental institution cause the public will not even receive warning when he is back on the streets again. These poor helpless women. It seems like anytime you reach past the ripe old age of 70, you should go get a Welder to fit you with a Chastity belt. If you can’t protect yourself one way, you must protect yourself another way from these sick Demons out there.

    Am what happen to his family, I feel fah them. But at this point he should of been put on the gallows or injected or brutally beaten by police … Rapist, thieves, killers should all get the same treatment ..

    • Sue Donym May 21, 2016 at 10:22 am

      “… brutally beaten by police” @Nicole Johnson would you really be comfortable with police being free to do this? And if you or one of your family members were charged, would you want it to happen before or after the conviction?

  8. BoBoThe Clown May 21, 2016 at 12:51 pm

    Dah is one sick puppy .I put “SICK” in capital letters ,because there is no other word that could adequately describe such action .
    I am sure that any bleeding hearts should know that he might have done what he did to anyone ,even a child.
    If putting him away for life prevents him from doing any such thing to any other human being ,then he might be in the best place.

    Yet the Guyanese who kill the lil white girl up in St Phillip, after torturing her for two hours or more , then hanging her from a rafter out side her own bedroom, get next to nothing, an is appealing now, he sentence too light.

    Hurah for the DPP Leacock.

    YESSSS SUE DONYMN He want executing… in the worst way. Did u really read and understand what he did? This is one of the worst crimes that could be committed. Did u listen to his responses when the police came for him . he aint care about jail. He is the devil. he need killing

    • Sue Donym May 21, 2016 at 11:00 pm

      @CHARM, bloodlust is interfering with your vision and your comprehension. I asked whether one would want a police force to freely carry out brutal beatings, and at what stage would it be okay. This particular rapist “care bout jail” because he wants to get out – the entire purpose of the appeal.

  11. maxjustina May 23, 2016 at 10:22 pm

    He suffers with a split personality. At times he used to sleep in dark holes and fantasize of having a wife with two children. I am happy that he can no longer be on the streets.
