NEW ORLEANS, Sept. 22 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Former Deputy City Attorney Henry A. Dillon III, 48, of New Orleans, has been sentenced to life imprisonment, U.S. Attorney Jim Letten of the Eastern District of Louisiana announced today.
On May 4, 2006, Dillon was found guilty by a federal jury of two counts of deprivation of rights under color of law against two separate victims. In addition, the jury made special findings that the offenses involved aggravated sexual abuse. Federal law defines aggravated sexual abuse as knowingly causing a person to engage in a sexual act by using force against that person.
According to the indictment, Dillon violated the civil rights of both victims while he was a Deputy City Attorney for the City of New Orleans by sexually assaulting each victim. Dillon lured each of the victims to his private law office in New Orleans after meeting them at Municipal Court by asserting that their presence was necessary to complete some court business. Once inside his office, he then forcibly raped each victim.
"Today, a ruthless and dangerous predator is beginning a lifelong federal prison sentence because he committed unspeakable acts of violence against innocent women while disguising himself as a public servant," stated U.S. Attorney Letten. "We in federal enforcement will continue to use all means at our disposal to protect all of our citizens, however young, disadvantaged or vulnerable, from corrupt and dangerous individuals such as Dillon."
U.S. Attorney Letten praised the courage of the victims identified in the indictment as well as those who testified or agreed to testify at trial for their courage in coming forward and providing critical testimony.
This matter was investigated by Special Agents of the FBI and the New Orleans Police Department. This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Michael McMahon and Mark Miller, as well as Julie Cullen, a Louisiana Deputy Attorney General who has been appointed Special Assistant U.S. Attorney.

I had always been given to understand that people read *ahem* Penthouse for the pictures.
I understand what you're saying...and the rape itself certainly isn't the federal issue...but the threat to use his office is the deprivation of rights.
I understand what you're saying...and the rape itself certainly isn't the federal issue...but the threat to use his office is the deprivation of rights, if carried forth.
