Chadrus Brown, 40, of Atlanta, who served as his own attorney, was convicted of rape, aggravated sodomy and child molestation for sexual assaulting a 9-year-old girl, DA Paul Howard’s office said. Brown was sentenced to four consecutive life sentences, plus 60 years in prison, without parole following his conviction.
In December 2012, Brown fondled and then raped the girl after forcing her to sleep in a bed alone with him, according to prosecutors. The victim told relatives about the attack and was taken to a hospital for care. Brown was arrested after DNA evidence linked him to the attack, the DA said.
