John Garrison – Repeat Sex Offender

Kings County District Attorney Charles J. Hynes today announced the sentencing of John Garrison, 37, to 20 years in prison for the October 2007 rape of a 13-year-old girl. He was convicted in February of Rape in the First Degree, Rape in the Second Degree, Sexual Abuse in the First Degree and Endangering the Welfare of a Child. He was sentenced today before Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice James Sullivan.

On the evening of October 3, 2007, the 13-year-old girl was running an errand to a nearby store. As she walked down Glenwood Road in East Flatbush, Garrison was standing in an alley with his penis exposed and tried to engage the victim in a conversation. He grabbed her by the arm and pulled her into the alley between two houses, where he raped her. The girl eventually managed to run to a friend’s house where she told her friend what happened. They went back to the victim’s home where the girl’s father called police.

During the investigation, police found some of Garrison’s DNA on the victim’s jeans which led to his arrest. He was a registered sex offender and was found through the DNA database because he has numerous previous convictions for public lewdness.
