Man Convicted Of 2004 Frederick Rape Based On DNA

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — A Hagerstown man has been convicted of a 2004 rape in Frederick based on a DNA sample he submitted in Tennessee.

A jury convicted NaJarred, 28, Walker of first-degree rape and other offenses Thursday after two days of testimony. He faces the possibility of life in prison at his sentencing May 8.

The victim was attacked in November 2004 under a downtown Frederick bridge.

Walker later moved to Tennessee, where he was convicted in Davidson County of offenses including attempted robbery, aggravated assault and drunken driving from 2008 to 2010.

In March 2011, Maryland State Police notified Frederick police that Walker’s DNA in a national database matched evidence collected from the rape victim.

By then, Walker was living in Hagerstown and wanted for a Tennessee probation violation.
