Cleveland kidnapper gets life, plus 1,000 years

After a statement from Ariel Castro - the Cleveland man who held three women captive and sexually abused them for the better part of a decade - and powerful words from one of his victims, a judge sentenced him Thursday to life in prison plus 1,000 years.

Judge Michael Russo called the sentence "commensurate with the harm you've done."

"There is no place in this city, there is no place in this country, there is no place in this world for those who enslave others," Russo said.
