On Aug. 14, 2010, Smith approached a 35-year-old woman walking near 80th Street and Cottage Grove Avenue, and asked if she wanted to get a drink, prosecutors said. The woman agreed and got into Smith's car.

Smith then pulled into a parking lot, where he proceeded to repeatedly punch the victim before raping her, Planey said. The woman was found unconscious and partially naked about 5:30 a.m. in the 1000 block of East 80th Street. Her underwear had been pulled down to her thighs, prosecutors said.

Smith, of the 7000 block of South Indiana Avenue, has two living children, ages 14 and 15, and works odd jobs to make money, his public defender said Friday.

    DNA Links South Side Man to 3 Cold-Case Rapes, 1 Murder

    This young man is a poster of how African American men in Chicago are systematically unemployed and involved in stick ups, shoot outs and other anti- social community destabilizing criminal activities for survival. This past summer/fall in Chicago, as a so-called sanctuary city, we witnessed undocument, non-english speaking Hispanics had been placed on street side walk repaving jobs in Bronzeville, thereby taking those jobs with support of the city administration from indeginous African American males!

    These are planned regentrification tactics.....
