The man who pleaded guilty to raping an elderly woman in Central Park last year was sentenced Wednesday to 30 years in prison.

David Mitchell was charged with rape and robbery for the attack that happened last September 12 near Strawberry Fields.

The 43-year-old admitted to knocking the 73-year-old victim to the ground, sexually assaulting her, and stealing her camera bag.

Mitchell will also face 10 years of post-release supervision.
