A St Lucian man has been sentenced to 36 years in prison for separate incidents of rape and other sexual offenses.

The man who lives in Forestiere man has been sentenced to 36 years in prison for separate incidents of rape and other sexual offences.

On August 5, 2011, Kirby Lima, of Forestiere, was accused of sexually assaulting a female who was at the time 12 years old.

According to reports, forty-one days later, he raped a 23-year-old woman. And again on February 1, 2013, Lima again raped a 28-year-old woman and finally, on July 12, 2013, raped a 17-year-old female.

Loop News reported that in each of the sexual encounters, Lima “entered the homes of his unsuspecting victims at night, waited till they were alone and promptly blindfolded his victims and, with or without the aid of a weapon and had vaginal and anal intercourse with his victims.”

Lima was ultimately connected to the offenses through DNA evidence.

On 22 October 2021, Lima pleaded guilty to three counts of rape and one count of unlawful sexual connection.

“For the two sexual offences which occurred in 2011, he was sentenced to a term of 18 years imprisonment for each count of rape. These sentences were made to run concurrently (That is, they will be served together). In relation to the offences which occurred in 2013, he was sentenced to a term of 18 years imprisonment for the count of rape and 10 years of imprisonment for the offence of unlawful sexual connection,” according to Loop.

These sentences were made to run concurrently.
