State Prison Time for Albany Man Who Raped UAlbany Student

The Guilderland man who raped a UAlbany student he found sleeping in her dorm room is sentenced to 37 years in state prison.

Franklin Casatelli was found guilty last December for breaking in to Stuyvesant Tower in 2016 and attacking a 19-year-old student who was sleeping.

He was convicted of rape, burglary and criminal trespass.

Casatelli was paroled 10 days before the attack for serving time for attempted drug possession.

It was after his third parole violation, stemming from a 2012 drug conviction case.
