Greg D. McFarlane, 27, was connected to the rape through DNA evidence collected during the investigation.

An Orlando man pleaded guilty Thursday to raping a woman last year in the Duckpond area and was sentenced to 30 years in prison.

Greg D. McFarlane, 27, was connected to the rape through DNA evidence collected during the investigation.

Darry Lloyd, spokesman for the State Attorney’s Office, said Judge William Davis designated McFarlane as a sexual predator. He must serve at least 10 years of the 30-year sentence.

The incident took place about 2 a.m. Oct. 9, 2016, police reported at the time. The woman had been walking from downtown to her home, when McFarlane approached her near East University Avenue and First Street and asked to borrow her lighter.

The woman let him borrow her lighter and noticed he was following her and asking her name. He followed her to the 600 block of Northeast Second Street, the report said. McFarlane then grabbed the woman from behind, put a gun to her head and raped her, the report said.
