Gregory George Brooks, an HIV-positive man who brutally raped a woman in 2004 has been given a 16 year sentence for his crime.
Brooks a long with his HIV has hepatitis C and is suffering from cirrhosis of the liver. It is believed that he won't live out his sentence.
The news article details the horrible things that Brooks had done. It is so brutal that I won’t repeat it here.
His victim, who was 35 at the time of the attack, remained outside the courtroom and chose not to address her captor.
"I think it's certainly a significant sentence. I can't say I'm unhappy with it," said Crown prosecutor Allison Downey, who had requested a
sentence in the range of 18 to 20 years.
Downey read to the court an agreed statement of facts detailing the chilling crime.

I don't think 16 years is enough for what this guy did. But there is comfort knowing that he will be spending his final days in prison.
