Court documents reveal that a man from Montgomery, who previously served time in prison for a felony murder conviction, has been arrested and charged with first-degree rape. This is a serious offense, and it’s important that justice is served. It remains to be seen how the legal proceedings will unfold, but the victim and their loved ones deserve support during this difficult time.
According to court documents, Tramaine Jovon Patterson, aged 35, allegedly sexually assaulted a woman in the wee hours of July 30th at an apartment in Montgomery. It was mentioned in the filings that the apartment belonged to Patterson himself. The victim immediately received medical attention after the incident, and the police were notified.
Montgomery police took Patterson into custody and moved him to the Montgomery County Detention Facility where he faced charges of rape.
In 2012, Patterson was arrested along with two co-defendants for the murder of Devontay Patterson, who was only 20 years old and happened to be Tramaine Patterson’s younger brother.
According to official court documents, Patterson acknowledged his guilt and pleaded guilty to the charge of felony murder back in 2014. The judge subsequently sentenced him to 20 years of confinement, five of which were to be served in prison while the remainder were suspended. Additionally, he was to serve five years of probation upon release. Although the exact date of his parole remains unknown, it is clear that he was granted early release at some point.
