A Colorado serial rapist was sentenced to more than 1,300 years in prison by a judge who said, “You are far beyond any potential rehabilitation,” reports the Denver Post. Fearing he would be killed in a Colorado prison, Brent J. Brents, 36, agreed to plead guilty in exchange for serving his time out of state. Brents admitted crimes against a dozen victims between Oct. 20 and Feb. 18. He expressed regret for the “violence, pain, hurt, (sorrow) and lies” he inflicted upon his victims and their families. “My actions were cowardly and wrong,” he wrote.
Brents said he had been sexually and emotionally abused as a child, something his mother denies. One victim told Brents in court that she hopes that in prison he experiences “sheer terror, and crumbles from weakness.”
