Tomasso Dilillo has reportedly been sentenced to 32 years in prison for the abduction of two Borough Park girls, Yeshiva World reported. [In actuality, he was convicted of kidnapping and abusing only one of these two girls – please see the update below.]
The first abduction took place at 52nd Street between 19th and 20th Avenues in July 2007. The girl was 4-years-old at the time of the kidnapping and was found wandering on a street about 15 blocks away approximately 2.5 hours later.
In the second incident, a 14-year-old girl abducted in August 2008 at 14th Avenue near 41st Street.
Yeshiva World cites “highly credible [unnamed] sources” who told it that “a Misaskim volunteer found a key piece of evidence which was used to link the two abductions.”
Dilillo was reportedly arrested on other charges approximately one year ago and DNA on that piece of evidence allegedly recovered by Misaskim matched him.
Update 12:58 PM CST – Dilillo was charged and convicted on only one of these two kidnappings:
KINGS COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY CHARLES J. HYNES ANNOUNCES 32-YEAR SENTENCE OF DEFENDANT WHO KIDNAPPED AND SEXUALLY ABUSED A FOUR-YEAR-OLD GIRL
Brooklyn, December 6, 2013 – Kings County District Attorney Charles J. Hynes today announced the sentencing of Tommaso Dilillo, 35, to 32 years in prison for kidnapping a four-year-old girl outside her home, forcing her into his car, driving off with her, and sexually abusing her. He was convicted on November 12, before Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice William Harrington, of Kidnapping in the Second Degree and Sexual Abuse in the First Degree. Dilillo received 25 years for the kidnapping and an additional seven years for the sexual abuse. He was also sentenced to 10 years post-release supervision.
On July 16, 2007, Dilillo grabbed the girl from the front steps outside of her Borough Park home. He put her in his car and drove off with her. He later pulled the car over and sexually abused her. Dilillo removed the girl’s underwear and threw it out the car window. Then he drove her several blocks away and told her to get out of the car, which she did. A woman found the girl wandering on the street, and called police. Police recovered the underwear and found DNA on it in the form of saliva. However, at the time, they did not know whose DNA it was.
In July 2009, Dilillo and his sister were arrested in a sex trafficking case. In March 2011, the defendant pled guilty to Sex Trafficking in that case and was sentenced to a maximum of three years. As a result, he had to supply a DNA sample. The DNA matched the saliva found on the four-year-old’s underwear, and he was subsequently arrested for that case.
The case was prosecuted by Sarena Townsend, Deputy Bureau Chief in the Trial Bureau Red Zone.
