Physical Castration Ordered By a Judge For a Man Raping and Impregnating a 14 Year Old

In a recent case, a 54-year-old man from Springfield, Glenn Sullivan Sr., pleaded guilty to four counts of second-degree rape. The charges were filed after a young woman came forward, stating that Sullivan had raped her multiple times when she was just 14 years old, resulting in her becoming pregnant.

District Attorney Scott Perrilloux’s office announced that Sullivan was sentenced to 50 years in prison by Judge William Dykes. However, the judge took a unique approach to the sentencing and ordered Sullivan to be physically castrated as well.

The Livingston, LA. Parish Sheriff’s Office initiated the investigation back in July 2022 after the victim disclosed the incidents. Detectives discovered that Sullivan had groomed the victim and used threats of violence against her and her family to prevent her from speaking out about the rapes.

The district attorney commended the victim for her bravery in coming forward and filing the charges. This case serves as an example of the importance of survivors speaking out against their abusers and seeking justice.
