WASHINGTON — More than a decade after a Georgetown University student was sexually assaulted off campus, the man responsible is now learning his sentence.
Benjamin Paz is facing 12 years in prison for his connection to the 2004 sexual assault. Paz was arrested in March 2018 and pleaded guilty.
For 14 years, investigators say sex offender Benjamin Paz lived a “double life,” working construction and attending church with his wife in Montgomery Village, Maryland, while frequenting the row houses near Georgetown University in the middle of the night, where he would peer into the homes of young women and often climbed inside.
The sentencing documents say, “The residents of these homes believed the intruder to be the same person each time and called the police many times.”
Sentencing documents also say the D.C. Police Cold Case Sexual Assault Unit recently linked a previous victim’s report of her attacker’s license plate to Paz, whose DNA matched that of the rape kit taken after another student’s sexual assault in 2004.
