NRI gets 4 years jail in U.S. for sexually abusing mentally-challenged girl
Friday, 14th May 2010
Shreya Lal, 21, of Lombard has also been ordered to register as a "lifetime convicted sex offender" upon his release from prison.
He was charged with sexually abusing a 20-year-old girl, who has the mental capacity of a 5-year-old, in June last year.
Lal's attorney John Donahue told DuPage County Judge Daniel Guerin that Lal was mentally ill and health experts have determined he suffers from "cognitive reasoning dysfunction".
Under the plea agreement that Lal has entered into for pleading guilty, he would receive treatment at a correctional centre for neurological, developmental and cognitive problems that stretch back to infancy.
