Sacramento man pleads no contest in Placer rape case

From Bill Lindelof:

A Sacramento man has pleaded no contest to rape, assault and car theft in Placer Superior Court.

Shirfraz Ali, 24, faces a prison sentence of seven years, eight months in state prison for raping a female acquaintance. He entered his plea Wednesday.

Placer County prosecutors said the woman drove Ali to Auburn to conduct business on May 29 but he sexually attacked her and choked her on a rural road.

The woman escaped by jumping from her car and flagging down a passing vehicle, a news release states. Ali then drove away in the woman's car, Deputy District Attorney Jeff Wood said.
