It has been a long time coming, but justice has finally been served. According to a statement from the Berkshire District Attorney’s Office, a state prison sentence was eventually handed down for the perpetrator of a sexual assault that took place in 2003.

The Berkshire District Attorney’s Office on Friday secured a conviction for Juan Harry, 54, on three counts of indecent assault and assault on a child and one count of child rape.

Harry fled prosecution over ten years ago. The North Adams Police Department arrested Harry for sexually assaulting two 11-year-old girls in 2003, and Harry fled the area on the first day the court planned to start the trial in 2010.

Then, just a few months ago, in August, police in Nassau County, New York, arrested Harry on the default warrant. Judge John Agostini sentenced Harry to eight to 10 years in state prison, in line with state sentencing recommendations.

Here’s what Berkshire District Attorney Andrea Harrington had to say:

We are happy to finally bring to the victims, now adult women who have waited a long time for this day, a little closure with this long sentence. The district attorney’s office will always fight for the victims, however long it takes. I thank the North Adams Police and the multidisciplinary team who investigated this case and provided us with sufficient evidence to secure a conviction. I thank the brave victims for reliving these horrific events and for sharing their powerful victim impact statements with the Court.
