Convicted rapist sentenced to 120 years in prison


WAUKEGAN, Ill. (AP) -- A Wisconsin man who was on parole when he allegedly grabbed a Grayslake woman as she was leaving a shopping mall and raped her last year has been sentenced to 120 years in prison.

Richard Gallatin was sentenced Thursday by Lake County Associate Judge George Bridges for aggravated criminal sexual assault, aggravated criminal sexual abuse, aggravated robbery and kidnapping.

Gallatin's public defender asked for the minimum sentence of 30 years.

Gallatin was convicted last month of chasing the woman to her car in the Gurnee Mills parking lot and forcing his way inside, then making her drive to Kane County, where he repeatedly raped her in a church parking lot. At the time of the attack, Gallatin was on parole for a child molesting conviction in Wisconsin.
