Prescott Man Convicted In Home Invasion And Sexual Assault

James-Elliot-VinsonA Prescott man who broke into his next-door neighbor's house and raped her last March has been sentenced to more than 31 years in prison. 

Police identified 38-year-old James Elliot Vinson after viewing surveillance tapes from another neighbor's home and from a grocery store minutes after the attack.  DNA evidence and Vinson's palm print on the victim's windowsill also linked him to the crime. 

The Yavapai County Attorney's Office says the majority of the sentence handed down Wednesday must be served without the chance of early release.
