District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro’s office on Thursday (Dec. 10 secured its second rape indictment in a week against a New Orleans man, this time for a sexual assault allegedly committed more than two decades ago against a juvenile girl.
Raymond Pittman was charged with first-degree rape in the indictment handed up by an Orleans Parish grand jury. The victim, now 34, told New Orleans police sex crimes detectives that she was raped by Pittman in Orleans Parish sometime between 1991 and 1997, when she was between 4 and 11 years of age.
Pittman, 50, was charged Dec. 3 with another count of first-degree rape by the same grand jury. In that case, a sexual assault occurring in October 2019 was alleged by a 24-year-old woman. Pittman faces a mandatory lifetime prison sentence if found guilty of either count.
Assistant District Attorney Alicia Bennette presented the case to the grand jury.
