Citing a lengthy past criminal record, evidence present and lack of remorse, Huron County Common Pleas Judge James Conway sentenced convicted rapist James C. Perry Jr. to life without parole.
The former Willard man was found guilty Tuesday of raping two girls in the fall. Perry was convicted of one rape charge and acquitted of five other counts. The guilty verdict, which came after eight hours of deliberation, covers an Oct. 7, 2011 incident.
