ANDERSON (May 5, 2014) – An Anderson teenager was sentenced to 50 years in prison for raping an elderly woman last summer.
Iquise Taylor pleaded guilty last month to burglary, criminal deviate conduct, criminal confinement and strangulation. A Madison County judge gave him the maximum sentence Monday.
In July 2013, Taylor—then 17 years old—broke into the home of 93-year-old Amelia Rudolf and sexually assaulted her. He was charged as an adult.
FOX59 does not typically identify rape victims, but Rudolf chose to share her story and said she didn’t think she’d live long enough to find closure.
A DNA match led investigators to Taylor.
