LIVINGSTON, La. (KAKE) - A 54-year-old Louisiana man who raped a 14-year-old girl multiple times has been sentenced to 50 years in prison and physical castration. 

WBRZ reports Glenn Sullivan Sr., of Springfield, pleaded guilty to four counts of second-degree rape last Wednesday. 

A young woman reported to law enforcement in July 2022 that Sullivan had raped her multiple times and impregnated her when she was 14. A DNA test ordered during trial proved that Sullivan was the father. The victim also reported that Sullivan had threatened her and her family if she ever told anyone about the abuse. 

In addition to his 50-year prison sentence, Sullivan must be physically castrated within one week of his release. 

Brad Cascio, the local assistant district attorney, said he pushed for the sentence due to the severity of the case. 

"I felt that this case was a strong enough case and warranted such action," he said.

Men convicted of certain rape offenses in Louisiana may be sentenced to chemical castration, or, if they so choose, the surgical removal of their testicles. Sullivan chose the latter.
