WASHINGTON — A 38-year-old Maryland man who pleaded guilty to multiple sexual assault charges stemming from a series of home invasions in 2016 has been sentenced to 39 years in prison.

Bryant Webster, of Suitland, pleaded guilty in July 2019 to two counts of first-degree sexual abuse while armed and one count of second-degree sexual abuse. The plea called for a sentence of 32-39 years. Judge Marisa Demeo handed down the max sentence. 

According to prosecutors, Webster broke into three different Capitol Hill homes and sexually assaulted or raped three men in their homes between mid-August and Oct. 1 in 2016. In the first assault, Webster photographed himself assaulting a man who was unconscious. Two weeks later, a man woke up to find Webster in his home pointing a gun with a red laser sight at him. Prosecutors said Webster tied the man's hands and feet, gagged him and raped him repeatedly. 

During the third assault, on Oct. 1, 2016, the man assaulted was able to alert his roommate who came home during the rape, which caused a struggle and allowed the victim to escape and call 911. DC Police arrested Webster at the house, and he has been in police custody since. Police said a backpack filled with knives, gloves, screwdrivers, duct tape, a hammer, binoculars, and condoms was found at the house.
