DOVER - A 32-year-old man who raped a recent high school graduate in 2014 was sentenced to up to eight years in prison on Monday.
John Rothwell was facing up to 20 years behind bars but he pleaded with the judge in Dover, saying he has three children, one on the way, and that his wife is in financial distress.
When Rothwell turned to face his victim to apologize, she left the courtroom. Police say the teenager woke up to find Rothwell assaulting her.
He claims he was black-out drunk.
