A teenager with a history of sexual assaults has been sentenced to three decades in prison, for raping a woman at gun point.

The Herald Palladium reports that 17-year-old Derrien Brown was sentenced on four felony charges for crimes committed over several weeks in January, shortly after he got out of jail.

The teen has a criminal history that began at age 11.

Most recently, he was convicted of breaking into a Benton Harbor home on Vineyard Street and raping the woman who lived there, while her 11-year-old brother was forced to watch.
