A Boca Raton rape case dating all the way back to 1976 came to an end in 2018 with a verdict.

A jury on Monday found John MacLean guilty of raping a 15-yr babysitter in 1976 in Boca Raton.

DNA from the girl’s jeans tied MacLean to the crime decades later. The trial started last week.

The woman who claimed MacLean raped her testified. The 42-year-old woman said the man had a gun and a panty hose stocking over his head. She said she feared for her life. Her attacker told her, "Don't worry, I won't hurt you. Don't scream."

MacLean is a registered sex offender following a conviction in the 1990s in Arizona. He was in South Florida and went to prison for a $1 million jewelry heist at a Fort Lauderdale mansion in the 1970s.
