Man convicted of rape more than 20 years after crime

Joseph Giardala, 46, was found guilty of rape, robbery, sodomy and sexual abuse Monday for the horrifying 1995 crime.

The victim told jurors at the Manhattan Supreme Court trial that Giardala had grabbed her as she walked along West Fourth Street, pushed her into a vestibule at knifepoint and brutally raped her.
