Convicted rapist Andrew Greene Jr. will never be a free man again. Last week, a judge labeled Greene an aggravated habitual sex offender and sentenced him to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
A jury convicted the 57-year-old homeless man in January of raping a mentally disabled woman in Olathe on March 9, 2009. The Star reported that Greene is the first Johnson Countian to be sentenced under the 2006 law requiring life sentences for habitual offenders. And Greene's offenses dated back to the 1970s.
According to the Star:
He had prior Johnson County convictions for rape and sexual abuse of a child and a Missouri conviction for first-degree sexual assault, enough to qualify as a habitual sexual offender.
Prosecutor Jill Kenney told the judge that Greene has assaulted women since the 1970s.
"What he's saying is, 'I just had sex with those people, I didn't hurt them,'" she said.
That, she argued, showed why he needed to be locked away for life.
Greene has said he'll appeal ... and hopefully, he'll lose.
