Rapist gets 18 1/2 years
A 22-year-old Forest Park man is being sent to prison for 18½ years for beating, cutting and raping his girlfriend, then calling her 350 times from jail to discourage her from testifying, authorities said.
Darryn Pringle got the sentence Friday.
A jury convicted him in May of rape, two counts of felonious assault, two counts of domestic violence and a count of violating a protection order.
The charges stem from January attacks on his girlfriend, who is the mother of his 1-year-old son. The incidents occurred in Hamilton.
