In the early morning hours of February 14, 2017, Patton entered his residence in the 1000 block of East Palmer Street and violently physically and sexually assaulted his live-in girlfriend multiple times. The victim was able to escape the residence and go to a nearby gas station to call the police.

“It was only with the unfathomable courage of the survivor to escape, report, and then face her attacker that this conviction was secured,” Prosecutor Curry commented. “Because of her bravery, Mr. Patton will no longer be able to act out his violent and predatory behavior in our community.”
