BROOKLYN — A man received a three-year prison sentence Tuesday after groping eight women and girls in a series of laundromat attacks, according to the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office.
Lowell Britt, of Bay Shore, Long Island, groped and fondled the victims at businesses in Brownsville and Canarsie between July 2010 and March 2013.
“This defendant degraded and violated innocent women and young girls repeatedly with his lewd, vile and reprehensible conduct, which will affect his victims for years to come,” Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson said in a statement.
“Fortunately, he’s off the streets now and in prison, where he belongs.”
The 29-year-old was convicted of rubbing himself against the women, exposing himself or acting in an “inappropriate sexual manner,” according to officials.
In one of the incidents on July 19, 2010, Britt pushed a 19-year-old’s head into a dryer at a Brownsville laundromat and forcibly rubbed himself against her. During another episode on March 18, 2012, he masturbated in front of a 13-year-old in Bushwick.
Police arrested Britt following an investigation by the Brooklyn Special Victims Squad.
He pleaded guilty in December to four counts of persistent sexual abuse, three counts of endangering the welfare of a child and two counts of public lewdness, among other charges, the DA said.
Britt will serve time concurrently with another three-year sentence he received in Queens for a similar case, according to officials.
