Ariel Castro learned his fate in a Cleveland court room yesterday, but it was no surprise to most onlookers.
The 53 year old former school bus driver was sentenced Thursday to life in prison plus 1,000 years.
Michelle Knight, one of the three young women Castro held captive in his Ohio home for a decade was in court. She told Castro, “You took 11 years of my life away and I have got it back. I spent 11 years in hell. Now your hell is just beginning.“
Castro pleaded guilty last week to 937 counts, including aggravated murder, kidnapping, rape and assault. A deal struck with prosecutors spared him from the death sentence.
