Man faces life sentence for part in gang rape; previously rejected 2 plea deals


HOLLYWOOD, Florida — A South Florida man is facing a possible life sentence for his part in the brutal beating and rape of a teenage girl.

A Broward County jury found 20-year-old Jayvon Woolfork guilty Tuesday of sexual battery and kidnapping. His sentencing is scheduled for next month.

Four teens — two girls and two boys — previously accepted plea deals for their parts in the attack. The South Florida Sun Sentinel (http://goo.gl/oSOaxj ) reports that they each received two years in prison.

Authorities say the girls invited the then-16-year-old South Broward High School student to a Hollywood home in November 2013 and then began to beat her until she agreed to have sex with Woolfork. Parts of the six-hour attack were recorded on a cell phone.

Woolfork previously rejected two plea deals that would have sent him to prison for 10 years or 15 years.
