D.C. man sentenced to 4 years for groping 12-year-old girl


WASHINGTON, D.C. – A 27-year-old man was sentenced Friday to 50 months in prison for sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl in Southeast, D.C., the U.S. Attorney’s Office says.

Davon Rashad Wood, 27, pleaded guilty in September to groping a minor as she was walking into a community aquatic center in June 2017.

Prosecutors say the victim was walking to William H. Rumsey Aquatic Center at the 600 lock of North Carolina Avenue SE. Wood held the door for the girl as she entered, then grabbed her from behind as she walked past him.

Officials say following Wood’s prison term, he will be placed on 10 years of supervised release, and he must also register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
