Rapist Gets 180 Years Behind Bars

Last updated on Thursday, September 27, 2007

(INDIANAPOLIS) - A man who raped a pregnant woman and molested a 7-year-old girl is headed to prison for 180 years.

Jonathan Castillo plead guilty to both cases in court. The 28-year-old admitted to attacking a woman who was five months pregnant in far Southside apartment complex last winter.

Indy Metro Police also connected Castillo to an assault on the little girl in May.

Judge Patricia Gifford heard from the victims' families during the sentencing hearing. The girl's father says he cannot forgive Castillo for his actions.

Castillo says he chose to plead guilty to spare his victims the pain of going through a trial.
