Paroled Shooter Charged with Assault, Rape

SCRANTON -- A man is locked up in Lackawanna County accused of forcing his way into a woman's home, strangling her until she passed out, and then raping her.

Court papers show Robert France attacked the woman last week in Scranton.

He is currently on parole for shooting a woman in the face in 2015 in Luzerne County.

    Another Parole success story! He’s not returning to jail on the same charge, so the recidivism rate stays down?
    Go Johnny Go! Your doing a great job emptying our jails. Problem is law abiding citizens suffer with your blind attempts to make our DOC look awesome.

    This guy is scum. fine. But 99% of the horrendous, sickening, twisted crimes on these news pages are by creepy white folks. Trash is colorblind. Sad and ironic thing about haters — your hatred poisons yourself and society more than it harms others. If the only way you can feel you can feel good for 10 seconds is to lob hateful rants into the internet, you have my sympathies. Why don’t you try smiling and saying hello to the next person you see (regardless of their color) — it might make your day and make our community stronger….How can we “make America great”, when we can’t even look each other in the eye?

    JUDGE AND PAROLE BOARD SHOULD BE NAMED AND FACE THESE SAME CHARGES..SYSTEM IS A JOKE. IF YOU PUT YOUR NAME ON IT YOU OWN IT..

      The woman he shot is Silvia Murati. He actually shot her with a .357 magnum while they were in a car. (Betcha that made the ears ring) He must REALLY not like her. Or, that’s how she likes it. Trash, both of them.

    how in the heck is he paroled after less than 2 years for shooting someone in the face? great job there people who decided he deserved parole. their names should be made public and they should lose their jobs

    Jail is no deterrent….hard labor is …Stop pussy footing around with these criminals and we might have less repeat offenders.
    And start from the the first offense

    Shot a woman in the face in 2015 and he’s out on parole???? Is this a misprint? If not, the judge and or the parole department need to be prosecuted. Parole as a whole needs to be abolished.
