Suspect indicted in 2008 rape of Sanford teen

SANFORD, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Sanford police say a man who's currently serving a federal prison term has now been indicted for the rape of a 14-year-old, who was walking to school, three years ago.

Dane Wilba Bosley was indicted for Gross Sexual Assault, Kidnapping, Assault and Criminal Threatening by a York County Superior Court Grand Jury.

Police say the teenager was walking to school on a wooded path behind the Sanford Armory around 7 a.m. in October of 2008, when Bosley approached her with a knife.  They say he forced her into a secluded area, and raped her.

The victim told officials at Sanford High School, and they called police.  While there were few leads at the time of the crime, police did collect DNA evidence from the victim and from the scene.  That evidence was processed by the state crime lab and entered into a database.

Police say Bosley was required to give a DNA sample when he pleaded guilty to federal robbery charges, after he robbed the Sanford Maine Bank and Trust in February 2010.  His DNA also went into the database, and matched that of the victim's attacker.

Bosley is currently in a federal prison, serving his sentence for the bank robbery.
