Anthony raped the teen on Nov. 17, 2005, and was sentenced in October 2007 to 25 years to life in prison.When he entered the elderly woman’s Santa Rosa home on Oct. 20, 2005, Anthony was wearing a mask and was armed with a knife, Ravitch said.He grabbed the woman from behind, dragged her to the garage door and shoved her into the garage, causing her to fracture her wrist, Ravitch said.

DNA evidence collected during the investigation into the teen’s rape was matched to DNA evidence found on the elderly victim, Ravitch said.Anthony was convicted of forcible rape, forcible oral copulation, forcible sexual penetration, first-degree burglary and elder abuse, Ravitch said.The jury also found to be true special allegations of kidnapping, use of a deadly weapon, commission of the sexual offenses during a burglary and infliction of great bodily injury on a victim over the age of 70.Anthony now faces another life term. A sentencing date has not
been set.
