Felon who raped "girlfriend's" disabled niece sentence to 12 years imprisonment

A California felon who had a previous federal conviction for bank robbery received a 12 year sentence for the rape of his girlfriend's developmentally disabled niece. Bruce Joseph Clemmons, 54, of Seaside, CA, was caught after his "girlfriend," the victim's aunt and guardian, called police on October 9, 2007, suspecting that he had sexual intercourse with her 27 year old developmentally disabled niece. These issues prevented police from questioning the victim in-depth, though she was able to tell investigators about the sexual contact with Clemmons.

Clemmons admitted the sexual contact, and knowing about the victim's issues. The conviction is his 2nd strike, and he will be on the sex offender registry for life.
