LIMA — A man convicted of violent crimes against his girlfriend, including rape, was given a 51-year-prison sentence Monday.
Brooks Howton, 33, shook his head as the judge sentenced him on each of four charges along with repeat violent offender specifications that were added since Howton has a robbery conviction from 2009.
He plans on appealing the conviction on rape, felonious assault, kidnapping and aggravated burglary, so he did not make a statement. Twenty of the years were for being a repeat violent offender.
