Man gets life in rape, robbery at Arundel laundromat

November 19, 2009

A Baltimore man with a history of psychiatric problems rambled about himself for nearly an hour Wednesday before Anne Arundel County Circuit Judge William C. Mulford II told him he was self-absorbed and sentenced him to life in prison for raping and robbing a 62-year-old woman as she was about to close the laundromat where she worked. Christopher Parr, 31, said nothing about the July 19, 2006, attack on the woman at the Village Laundromat in Brooklyn Park or about wanting mental health treatment, though his lawyer unsuccessfully sought a recommendation for an evaluation for services at Patuxent Institution. His trial had been delayed because in 2007 he was considered mentally unfit for trial. "I think that you showed no remorse. ... I think you are entirely self-centered," Mulford told him.
