Robert N. Patton Jr. who has raped at least 37 women asked for and received a longer sentence that he had plea bargained for. Patton who has admitted to 43 rapes, received 68 years in jail instead of the 50 he would have under his initial plea bargain, and fined 2.5 million dollars. His victims had ranged from 13 to 30.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- It was on Christmas night that Candy Brewer heard a "shave-and-a-haircut" knock on her apartment door. As she opened the door with the safety chain still on, a stranger burst in, pushed her down and raped her as her 2-year-old son lay asleep beside her.

It's Daddy, she told the boy when he woke up. Go back to sleep.

Brewer was attacked by Robert N. Patton Jr., who raped at least 37 women -- 13 of them in the 2 1/2 years that a DNA sample that could have identified him sat in storage, waiting to be entered into a crime database. Federal funding to test felons' blood samples had run out five weeks before Patton's sample was taken.

Patton, 42, pleaded guilty this week, a day into the first of an expected four trials, admitting even to 43 offenses that had been dropped because they were too old. On Wednesday, he was sentenced to 68 years in prison -- longer than his plea bargain required -- and fined $2.5 million for 135 counts of rape, kidnapping and burglary.

"The deal was for 50, and he asked for more," defense attorney Terry Sherman said. "He made a statement that he doesn't deserve to ever get out."

Lets hope he does not ever make it out of jail alive. The real tragedy here is that for 2.5 years his DNA sample was untested because they had run out of funds. During that time he committed an additional 13 rapes. He even began forcing victims to take showers to get rid of any evidence. One can only hope that there is a special hell waiting for him.

I don't think him getting out will be a problem. As the article states, he asked for a longer sentence himself
(wierd booger)

Now, in jail, he'll be able to do all the raping(or be on the recieving end) he wants
