ANDERSON, Ind. - A teenager has been sentenced to spend the next 50 years behind bars for the rape of an Anderson woman.
Iquise Taylor (17 years old when he was charged last year) was sentenced Monday morning in Madison County to half a century in prison for the July 2013 attack on Amelia Rudolf, 93.
Taylor was taken to Logansport State Hospital in October after two mental health experts found he was borderline mentally disabled, but he was later was charged with rape, burglary, criminal confinement and strangulation, and was waived to adult court.
RTV6 does not usually identify victims of sexual assault, but Rudolf and her family opted to attend and participate in an Anderson Police news conference back in 2013.
"I didn't think I would live long enough to see who did it. I'm happy it turned out the way it is," Rudolf said when Taylor was charged last year.
According to the probable cause affidavit, investigators found Taylor's DNA on Rudolf's body.
Police said Taylor lived within in a block of Rudolf's house near Pulaski Park, but they don't know if he targeted her specifically.
