A 19-year-old Macon man was sentenced Tuesday to 40 years, 15 of them in prison, for attacking a woman in 2012 and robbing a gas station in 2014.
In a Bibb County Superior Court hearing, Rayshawn Odom pleaded guilty to aggravated assault with the intent to rape and robbery by sudden snatching, according to the District Attorney's Office.
Odom was 16 when he was indicted, accused of sodomizing a woman on the porch of a house on Dec. 27, 2012.
The woman told police she was walking near the intersection of Napier Avenue and Robinson Road about 12:30 p.m. when Odom began following her, fondling himself and showing his genitals, according to a police report.
The woman said she knocked on a door, and the teen assaulted her on the porch.
Odom was arrested after a short foot chase.
Less than two years later he was charged in a July 6, 2014, robbery at the Raceway gas station, 6001 Harrison Road.
He allegedly reached across the counter and took money from the open cash drawer, according to the Bibb County Sheriff's Office.
Odom was later arrested at a nearby motel.
