Career criminal charged with rape of 100-year-old woman, burglary

A career criminal from Kansas has been charged with the sexual assault and burglary of a 100-year-old woman during a break-in at her home.

Kasey Nesbitt, 35, made his first court appearance in a Wichita courtroom Wednesday and was charged with rape and aggravated burglary.

The woman, who lives alone, told police that intruders forced open the door of her home on September 29 while she was asleep.

According to police, forensic evidence linked Nesbitt to the rape. He is being held in the Sedgwick County Jail on $250,000 bond.

The suspect, a documented gang member, has a lengthy criminal record going back to 2000, which includes multiple convictions on burglary and theft charges. Court records obtained by The Wichita Eagle showed that he was released from prison in January 2013.

Nesbitt was arrested Monday in connection to an unrelated burglary and was already in jail when he was named a suspect in the rape case.

The disturbing incident took place on the night of September 29 when a group of men broke into the house in the 800 block of South Crestway in Wichita, police said. .

At around 7am the following day, the alleged rape victim walked to a neighbor’s home for help.

The elderly resident said that she was awakened at around 9pm by strangers, who forced their way inside through the back door.

A medical examination determined that the woman had been sexually violated.

Wichita Police Captain Troy Livingston said that the victim is ‘a very strong and brave woman’ who was able to give them information on the suspects. .

Nesbitt is due back in court October 29. The station KWCH reported that if convicted, prosecutors plan to ask for a harsher sentence for Nesbitt because the victim was particularly vulnerable.

‘All rape is a deplorable crime, but when you look at the age of our victim it becomes a little bit more concerning and a little bit more disturbing,’ Livingston said.
