Serial Esplanade rapist gets 18 to 22 years

Done

A Suffolk Superior Court judge today sentenced Alejandro Done, 49, of the South End, to 18 to 22 years in prison - but with much of that to run concurrently with, rather than after, a Middlesex County rape sentence he is already serving, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.

Suffolk County prosecutors had asked for a sentence of 25 to 30 years in prison for Done, who admitted last month he had been attacking women on the Esplanade for years. And they had asked that his Suffolk County sentence start only after he'd finished his Middlesex sentence of 10 to 12 years for raping a woman there after picking her up in his Uber car on Tremont Street in Boston in 2014.

Done pleaded guilty last month to two counts of aggravated rape, one count of rape, one count of assault with intent to rape, two counts of kidnapping, and one count of armed robbery for attacks on three women on the Esplanade in 2006, 2007 and 2010 - for which authorities had long warned women about walking on the Esplanade alone late at night.

What’s the point?

Of a sentence that runs concurrently? It absolutely diloutes the sentence, extending time served by only a half or third of what was handed down. Ridiculous- truth in sentencing!!

I'd settle for the judge not being allowed to thumb their nose

at the prosecution by rejecting their recommendations for both length of sentence and letting the sentence run concurrently with the one he's presently serving.

At the very least, the judge should be required to explain in a written statement issued to the public and the media why he made the decision he did.

I'd settle for ...

You ever bothering to learn that the judge does not work for the prosecution and doesn't have to answer to one adversarial party in a pair.

That, and this asshole never seeing the light of day.

Judge is supposed to work for

Judge is supposed to work for the public and it doesn't appear that they give a damn about the public nor the intent of the law.

The Judge worked for the prosecution? Where did he say the Judge had to answer to anyone but the public?
