Meriden man sentenced in rape case


A man from Meriden has been sentenced for sexually assaulting a teenager, police said.

Luis Concepcion, a registered sex offender, was arrested in May 2013 and entered a guilty plea late last week, according to officials.

Concepcion was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Police said a teenage female was forced into a vacant building on Springdale Avenue and sexually assaulted in December of 2011.

They said this happened as the victim was walking to a bus stop.

Investigators credit modern forensic science like DNA and the Combined DNA Index System with Concepcion's arrest.
