(LOS ANGELES) -- A 39-year-old man has been convicted of raping a woman after he drugged her and sprayed her with a refrigerant chemical at his Pasadena Home.
Piotr Igor Dudkiewicz was sentenced to 40 years and eight months to life in state prison, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced on Monday.
Prosecutors say Dudkiewicz brought the victim to his house in April and attempted to force the woman to inhale the refrigerant gas. In the struggle the Freon burned her chest, face and hands, according to court testimony. Evidence at trial also revealed that the victim was then additionally drugged with ketamine, tied, and sexually assaulted by Dudkiewicz.
The following day the victim called 911 and eventually managed to leave the home, prosecutors say.
Dudkiewicz is now registered as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
