Justin Harris, 28, and Glendon Jackson,23, broke into the home on Sterling Place in the early morning hours of Aug. 30, 2007, with a third man, DeShawn Owens, 28, according to testimony from several victims. Mr. Jackson was convicted of rape; he attacked a 43-year-old mother and her 17-year-old daughter in a bathroom while another daughter, 5, looked on.
