Timothy West, 26, was cleared of four charges that he entered an Ozone Park home in 2009 through a window and raped and robbed a 21-year-old waitress at knifepoint in her bed.

One juror said the panel believed the victim must have known West, and that she let him into her home.

West has a history of break-ins and was on parole for robbery when arrested, but the jury did not hear that evidence: Buchter ruled it could prejudice the jury against him.
