Cleveland Kidnapper Castro Sentenced to Life in Prison: “I’m Not a Monster”


cleveland-ariel-castroCleveland Kidnapper Ariel Castro has been sentenced to life without possibility of parole. In a statement to the court, Castro denied preying on his victims and blamed his actions on an addiction.

“I’m not a monster. I’m a normal person. I’m sick just like an alcoholic.”

He also said the home was not the house of horrors described by his captives. “There was a lot of harmony in that home,” he said.
