A man was sentenced to life in prison on Monday for the brutal rape and murder of 18-year-old Zoe Hastings who was attacked in 2015  while returning a Redbox movie on her way to church. A jury took only six minutes to decide to give Antonio Cochran, 37, the life sentence, according to the New York Daily News. Cochran’s sister had begged them for mercy.

Initially, prosecutors sought the death penalty but changed their mind after finding out that Cochran is intellectually disabled. He will be eligible for parole in 30 years. There was no reaction from Cochran when he was sentenced. He had been convicted of murder just two days earlier.

Nearly three years ago, Hastings was abducted after stopping to return a movie at a Redbox, located in a Walgreens parking lot. She was then sexually assaulted before being slashed in her throat with a pocket knife according

Mother Finds ‘Deleted’ Video Of Man Allegedly Raping 7-Year-Old Daughter

A Texas man was arrested on Sunday after a woman made a horrifying discovery while looking at his tablet. According to WDSU, she found a video of 35-year-old Jose Trinidad Gonzalez allegedly raping her own 7-year-old daughter in the “deleted photos” folder.

According to a San Antonio Police Department arrest report, Gonzalez allowed the victim and her siblings to play games on his iPad. On Sunday, the children’s mother took a look at the tablet to see what kind of games her kids were playing. Perhaps her gut told her something was off about Gonzalez because she opened the “deleted photos” folder of the device. There, she reportedly saw a photograph of her daughter’s genitals and the video of Gonzalez and her daughter.

Gonzalez’s relation to the mother and her children have not been released by police, the Miami Herald reports. However, KENS5 said it was a man she

Man Pleads Guilty To Raping His 63-Year-Old Mother: ‘I Blacked Out’

On Tuesday, an Ohio man pleaded guilty on charges that he raped his 63-year-old mother, but he said he had no memory of the incident and wondered if he had been drugged before the attack, the LA Times reported.

The Cincinnati man, 46, signed a plea deal and then appeared to take it back in court.

“What is your plea to count 1, the offense of felonious assault … guilty or not guilty?” said Hamilton County Common Pleas Court Judge Charles Kubicki, according to USA Today.

“Not guilty. I take my plea back. I want to go to trial with this,” he said. “It’s all bogus and lies.”

The man spoke with his defense attorney, Edward Keller, for a few minutes and then pleaded guilty to charges of rape, felonious assault and kidnapping. In exchange for his guilty plea on these charges, prosecutors dropped his charges of attempted rape and abduction.

Man Accused Of Raping 12-Year-Old Gets Joint Custody Of Her Child

A Michigan judge awarded joint legal custody of an eight-year-old boy to the man who was convicted of raping the boy’s mother nine years ago, when she was 12, The Detroit News reported.

Christopher Mirasolo, 27, is the biological father of the child, according to DNA testing.

“This is insane,” said Rebecca Kiessling, the victim’s attorney. “Nothing has been right about this since it was originally investigated. He was never properly charged and should still be sitting behind bars somewhere, but the system is victimizing my client, who was a child herself when this all happened.”

Kiessling is fighting the ruling under the federal Rape Survivor Child Custody Act, and a hearing is scheduled to be held on Oct. 25, according to the News.

Judge Gregory S. Ross disclosed the young victim’s address to Mirasolo in the custody case and ordered that his name be added to the boy’s birth certificate, Kiessling said,
