ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) -- A man convicted of home invasions, burglaries and forced sex acts upon women has received a life sentence.
A Montgomery County judge sentenced 34-year-old Kevin Ray on Tuesday to life in prison plus 220 years. Ray was convicted in April of crimes including burglary, first-degree assault, sex offense and false imprisonment.
Prosecutors say Ray committed crimes across the Washington area in early 2012. In one case in Bethesda, prosecutors say Ray tied up residents and sexually assaulted a housekeeper before getting away. A day before, authorities say he stole cash and a vehicle during a home invasion in Silver Spring.
Montgomery County State's Attorney John McCarthy says Ray "is a career violent criminal" who deserves a life sentence.
