    OH - Dennis Couch, rapist, sentenced to 128 years

    The girl was 17 years old in 1992 when a man with a gun got into her car. He blindfolded her and drove her somewhere and raped her 4 times before letting her go.
    After conviction, during the sentencing the mother of the girl told the judge

    "Can you imagine how it feels to be a mother of a rape victim and have to listen to details and know it happened to your own daughter?

    "This truly was a mother's biggest nightmare."
    But even with the 128 year sentence, Dennis Couch will be eligible for parole in 15 years.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    128 years sounds great until one realizes that he may be out in 15 years--to rape and destroy again. Sady, many rapists don't even do 5 years.

    OTOH, this guy has already re-offended (1994 and 2002), so it's likely he won't be a choir boy in jail. With any luck, he'll re-offend in prison and his 15 years will multiply. But at least the sentencing judge indicated she'll be around in 15 years to make his release a long shot. One can only hope that the legal and penal systems will make his drop-in-the-bucket sentence last a lifetime.
