Man Receives Life With 25 Years to Serve for Home Invasion And Sexual Assault of SCAD Students

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA -

The Office of Eastern Judicial Circuit/Chatham County District Attorney announces that on July 12, 2013, Chatham County Superior Court Judge Timothy Walmsley sentenced Raynard Lamar Lexie, (age 20) of Savannah, to Life with 25 years to be served in prison and the balance to be served on probation. On May 9, 2013, a Jury found Lexie guilty of: Aggravated Assault (3 counts), Kidnapping, Aggravated Sodomy, Burglary and Armed Robbery for his involvement in the home invasion and assault of two SCAD students in 2012.

During the trial, Assistant District Attorney Jenny Guyer detailed to the Jury that on the evening of September 21, 2012, the victim, a student at SCAD, arrived home at approximately 7:25pm to her Waldburg Street address in downtown Savannah. As she approached her front door, she was assaulted by two men wielding guns. The men forced her into her home and led her into a back bedroom.

The pair then began ransacking the house for items to steal; finding a phone, laptop computers, a camera and cash money. While being held in the back bedroom against her will, one man sexually assaulted the victim at gunpoint. As the men were exiting the residence, the victim's roommate was arriving home. The fleeing men burst through the front door; running into the roommate. The roommate subsequently fell backwards onto the sidewalk, breaking her leg. The roommate's cries for help were heard by a neighbor, who called police. Lexie was apprehended minutes later at a friend's apartment in Frazier Homes and positively identified by the victim.

The State was represented by ADA Jennifer Guyer, ADA Christy Barker served as Second Chair and the Lead Detective on the case was Detective Lord of the SCMPD.
