Newark Man Who Raped Disabled Teen Gets 10 Years In Prison

On Friday Delaware Prosecutors announced that they secured a 10-year prison sentence for a man who raped and impregnated a teenager with developmental disabilities.

In June 2018, Britt Bowen, 45, of Newark sexually assaulted the victim while in his care. Bowen was arrested after DNA evidence revealed him to be the father.

In August 2019, Bowen pleaded guilty to Rape Second Degree. A Superior Court judge sentenced Bowen to 10 years in prison, including completion of the Transitions sex offender program, followed by 6 months of either home confinement or work release, then 3 years of probation.

Bowen must also register as a Tier 3 sex offender. DOJ social worker Lisa Rapko assisted with the case.
