MAN GETS PRISON FOR BREAK-INS, RAP­ING GIRL, 6

The London Free Press - - CANADA -

CLEVE­LAND An Ohio man has been sen­tenced to 35 years in prison with­out the chance of pa­role for break­ing into two homes and ab­duct­ing and rap­ing a six-year-old girl and at­tempt­ing to abduct a 10-year-old girl. Justin Chris­tian, 30, pleaded guilty Thurs­day to charges in­clud­ing rape, kid­nap­ping and bur­glary. He de­clined to say any­thing be­fore a judge sen­tenced him. Pros­e­cu­tors say Chris­tian care­fully planned the ab­duc­tion at­tempts and scouted the homes. In­ves­ti­ga­tors say he tried to take the 10-year-old from her bed­room in Elyria in Fe­bru­ary 2016, but she fought him off. They say a few months later he ab­ducted the sixyear-old from her Cleve­land home and raped her while hold­ing her for 17 hours else­where.
