Jan. 14, 2022 – Westchester County District Attorney Miriam E. Rocah announced the sentencing of a White Plains man who exposed himself to a woman and demanded she perform a sexual act on him after violently forcing himself into her White Plains residence.

Derrick Toone, 35, was sentenced on Jan. 13, 2022, to 10 years in state prison, with 10 years of post-release supervision on his pleas of guilty to Burglary in the First Degree as a Sexually Motivated Felony and Attempted Criminal Sexual Act in the First Degree, a felony. Upon his release from prison, Toone, a second violent felony offender, will be required to register as a sex offender.

In a victim impact statement submitted to the court, the victim said: “You are evil and a danger to women, you are a true sexual predator.... Today, I’m not standing here just for myself. I’m standing here for all the women that don’t or can’t, because of fear.”

On March 10, 2021, at approximately 1 p.m., the victim was entering her apartment when Toone, who was unknown to the victim, approached her from behind, placed her into a chokehold and pushed her into her home. Once inside, Toone threatened to kill the victim, exposed himself by dropping his pants and demanded the victim perform oral sex on him. The victim escaped her apartment and called the White Plains Police Department. Toone fled the scene, but was arrested by White Plains Police later that day.

The case was before Judge Barry Warhit in Westchester County Court, and was prosecuted by Sex Crimes Bureau Chief Wendy Parra.
