Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson today announced the conviction of Cyril Cutting, 28, in the sexual assault of a 14 year-old girl in an East New York motel in 2012.  Cutting was convicted on the top charge of Criminal Sexual Act in the Second Degree. 

“Sexually assaulting a child is an utterly reprehensible act. When an adult abuses an innocent child, this type of crime demands that society send a swift and strong message that those who prey on children will be held accountable for their horrendous actions. We commend the jury for seeing that justice was done in this case,” said District Attorney Kenneth Thompson.

Prior to the incident, the Defendant Cyril Cutting and the victim, who were acquaintances, spoke via telephone. During the early morning hours of September 23, 2012, the Cutting drove to the victim’s home and threatened to wake up her family if she didn’t come outside.  The victim, who was 14 at the time, complied and the defendant drove her to the Oasis Motel in East New York. Once at the motel, the victim told him she did not feel comfortable and unsuccessfully tried to call her mother. Defendant Cutting made her remove her clothes, and following an act of oral sex, the Defendant engaged in sexual intercourse with the victim twice.

After the incident, Cutting drove the victim back to her home where she told her mother. They went to the 75th Precinct and filed a complaint.

Defendant Cutting faces a maximum of seven years in prison when he is sentenced before Judge Alan Marrus.
