New Haven man sentenced to 6 years for acid attack
The attack happened in January 2016. A police report said Rawls turned off the water in the woman’s apartment before he threw acid on her so she could not wash it off. She was treated at a hospital for third-degree burns on her face, neck and chest and was permanently scarred.
She said in a statement read in court that her scars “will remain a reminder of that terrible day forever.”
Rawls declined to make a statement during the hearing.
