ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Special prosecutors have gotten the first plea from the rape kit backlog.

The victim's case had been left in the backlog until Bernalillo County launched the Sexual Assault Kit Initiative (SAKI) that has now screened more than 2,800 cases for prosecution. 

Rios will also serve 10 years probation and will have to register as a sex offender.
