A Bay Shore man who drugged and sexually abused young women while also stealing their belongings has been sentenced to 25 years in prison, with 20 years of post-release supervision, Suffolk County District Attorney Raymond A. Tierney announced.
Raul Guaman, 44, who pleaded guilty in June to eight felony counts and two misdemeanors, was sentenced Monday.
"Over and over again, this defendant preyed upon young women simply seeking safe passage home after a night out," Tierney said in a statement.
Authorities said that while investigating a November residential burglary and sexual abuse case in Brightwaters, Suffolk County police obtained a home surveillance video showing Guaman as he tried to "unlawfully enter the residence." It also showed his car parked nearby, authorities said.
Investigators interviewed Guaman on Nov. 18, at which time the district attorney's office said Guaman admitted he'd broken into the home — and also "entered a bedroom where he had sexually abused a female victim while she slept."
During the investigation, the prosecution said Guaman allowed police to search his cellphone — a search that revealed photos of victims' driver's licenses, as well as videos.
Some of those dated to 2015, authorities said — and included video of Guaman "engaging in sexual acts with unconscious females."
Guaman pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree criminal sexual act, one count of second-degree sexually motivated burglary, one count of second-degree burglary, one count of first-degree sexual abuse, two counts of third-degree sexual abuse, four counts of second-degree unlawful surveillance and one count of failure to stop at a stop sign, which is an infraction.
As part of his plea agreement, Guaman also was ordered to undergo testing for HIV.
