A 20-year-old Buffalo man faces a lengthy prison sentence after admitting to robbing a man at gunpoint and then minutes later forcing himself sexually on a woman last November, the Erie County District Attorney’s Office announced Tuesday.

Jesse Buchanan, of Woltz Avenue, pleaded guilty to first-degree robbery and first-degree criminal sexual act before Erie County Judge Kenneth F. Case, according to District Attorney Frank A. Sedita III.

Buchanan was linked to the crimes by DNA evidence.
