A MAN who raped a 71-year-old who suffers from senile dementia has been sentenced to 11 years in prison today (Friday).
Michael Ramnel Williams, 55, of Quex Road, Kilburn, attacked his defenceless victim, who lives in a care home, and left her to wander the streets in a state of partial undress on August 11 last year.
When she was found by a member of the public in Willesden High Road at 9.30pm she had been reported missing from the care home where she lived for more than 12 hours.
Officers said the woman was in a state of confusion with bruises on her body and subsequent hospital tests concluded she had been raped.

He was found guilty for rape and sexual activity with a person with a mental disorder, impeding choice at Harrow Crown Court.
DC Stuart Coutin, of the Met’s Sapphire Unit that deals with sex crimes, said: “This has been a particularly difficult case to investigate because the victim gets confused and has no memory of the incident.
“I’m very grateful that the court has recognised the guilt of the defendant.”
“It was thanks to the tenacious attitude of everyone involved we were able to prove a crime had been committed and to ensure Williams was brought before the courts.
