(WMC-TV) – A 27-year-old man will spend the next 25 years in prison after pleading guilty to aggravated rape and robbery.

Demond Hughes and two other men entered a home on Malone Street armed with handguns in 2010.

The man and woman inside were robbed of money, jewelry, and prescription medications.

The woman was ordered to undress and lay of the floor while the men beat the male victim in the head with their handguns and demanded money.

The suspects reportedly shoved a broom handle into the male victim's anus, then fled the scene.

The victim was taken to The MED to be treated from the injuries sustained in the rape.

Demond Hughes pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated rape, one count of especially aggravated robbery and one count of aggravated robbery.

He was sentenced to 25 years in prison without the possibility of parole.
