WINDSOR LOCKS, CT (WFSB) -

An elderly woman’s rapist is already behind bars but now she is suing the hotel where the attack happened.

The 83-year-old victim has filed a federal lawsuit against the company that manages the Quality Inn on the Ella Grasso Turnpike in Windsor Locks.

On June 5, 2014 the woman said 43-year-old former state trooper Jeffrey Laporto sexually assaulted her.

The lawsuit claims the desk clerk on duty at the hotel that night allowed the rape to happen.

The victim is asking for $110 million in damage.

Laporto pled no contest to first-degree sexual assault and was sentenced in June to two years in prison.
