The judge told Luth on Thursday that he deserves every single minute of his sentence. The district attorney said it was such a violent crime — he asked for double the usual penalty for the rape. He also read a statement from the victim who described the “hours of hell” in the backseat of the car. She says she felt dirty and ashamed after the attack. She struggled with nightmares and her trust in people, especially men, disappeared.
The victim said she wants closure and hopes to become and advocate for other victims. She added that she won't let what happened to her break her while saying that “Luth picked the wrong person to be his last victim.”
Luth will have to register as a sex offender for life.
