Man sent behind bars for horrific assault

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - A man is headed behind bars after a horrific assault in 2012. Virgil Brown, 51, learned his sentence of 21 years to life behind bars Monday morning.

Brown was sentenced for luring a nine-year-old boy into a home on Howard Street and raping him. He was found guilty after 15 minutes of jury deliberations.

It was not admissible as evidence in his trial, but Brown is a registered sex offender from Washington. In 2007 he was released on parole after serving a 12-year sentence for forcible rape of another juvenile.
