Delaware Man Pleads Guilty in Old North Dakota Rape Case

Posted:

WILLISTON, N.D. (AP)- A Delaware man has pleaded guilty to raping a 14-year-old girl in North Dakota nine years ago.
    
Forty-six-year-old Robert Venker late last week pleaded guilty in state court to gross sexual imposition, felonious restraint and indecent exposure. His deal with prosecutors calls for him to serve 12 years in prison.
    
Judge David Nelson must agree. He ordered a presentence investigation and did not immediately set a sentencing date.
    
Authorities say Venker, of New Castle, Delaware, raped the teenager in a Williston driveway while she was walking home from a friend's house in September 2006. He was working for an oil company at the time.
    
Authorities say DNA taken from Venker when he was jailed in Missouri last year linked him to the Williston crime.
