Look at him. All smiles.

From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

A Milwaukee man has been charged with sexually assaulting a 101-year-old woman in her home in September.

Antoine Devon Pettis, 20, faces charges of burglary, aggravated battery and second degree sexual assault, which carries a penalty of up to 25 years in prison.

According to the criminal complaint and Milwaukee police:

The victim was asleep at her home on the city's north side, where she lived alone, when she heard a noise and realized someone was in her bedroom. She asked who was there and why, but was only told "shut up" and slapped several times in the face.

The attacker then grabbed the victim's wrists, flipped her on her stomach, sexually assaulted her and left. The woman waited on her bed until she thought the intruder was gone, then went to her door and began yelling for help.

Police arrived to find the woman bleeding from her face and with blood stains on her legs and buttocks.

She was taken to a hospital and treated.

Pettis left behind DNA evidence at the scene. Detectives with the Milwaukee Police Department's Sensitive Crimes Division identified Pettis as a suspect on Thursday after his DNA revealed familial traits with those of a male relative, who was already in a DNA database. Investigators eventually matched DNA recovered from the woman's body and nightgown to Pettis' DNA.
Oh, my God.

Pettis is a monster.

Was it an invasion of the privacy of Pettis to use familial DNA to identify him?


I'm glad he's in custody.

Thank you, DNA database.
