Criminal Division | Department of Justice | Department of Justice Press Releases | Date Posted: Friday, December 27, 2019



Wilmington man sentenced for assault under I-95

Deputy Attorney General Monil Amin secured a 10-year prison sentence for a man who raped and impregnated a teenager with developmental disabilities. In June 2018, Britt Bowen, 45, of Newark sexually assaulted the victim while in his care. Bowen was arrested after DNA evidence revealed him to be the father. In August 2019, Bowen pleaded guilty to Rape Second Degree. A Superior Court judge sentenced Bowen to 10 years in prison, including completion of the Transitions sex offender program, followed by 6 months of either home confinement or work release, then 3 years of probation. Bowen must also register as a Tier 3 sex offender. DOJ social worker Lisa Rapko assisted with the case.

A 57-year-old Wilmington man who cut another man’s chest with a box cutter was sentenced to time in prison. Juan Rojas was sentenced in connection with the 2018 assault of a homeless man in the city. In August 2018, Rojas, the victim, and two other people were drinking under the I-95 overpass at Maryland Avenue and Liberty Street when the victim confronted Rojas about inappropriately touching a woman who was with them. As the two argued, Rojas cut the victim from his neck down to his stomach causing an 18-inch long wound. In May 2019, Rojas pleaded guilty to Assault First Degree and Possession of a Deadly Weapon During the Commission of a Felony. A Superior Court judge sentenced Rojas, who has 2 previous felony assault convictions on his record, to 12 years in prison followed by 3 years of probation. Deputy Attorneys General Monil Amin and Renee Hrivnak prosecuted the case.
