Convicted Rapists Sentenced to More Than 100 Years
A man convicted of raping a 70-year-old Kansas City woman was been sentenced to 136 years in prison.
Federal prosecutors say 29-year-old Jason Berry was sentenced Thursday for the May 2014 rape. He was convicted in March of burglary, rape and first-degree sexual assault.
Berry's probation on a 2012 burglary conviction also was revoked, which means he will serve another six years in prison for that conviction.
Berry had denied raping the woman and his lawyer argued during the trial that evidence suggested someone else committed the crime.
