Robbery and other charges stemming from a string of holdups in the city last year, the Topeka-Capital Journal is reporting that 27-year-old Arthur Lee Crain III was sentenced to 21 years and one month for one count of rape.

Sentences for 39 other convictions will run at the same time as the rape term.  He must also finish serving the remaining two years on a 2007 conviction in Shawnee County for aggravated robbery.

Crain entered guilty pleas in April and was arrested in late August, about six weeks after the robberies started he plead guilty to two rapes, three sexual batteries and 15 aggravated burglaries.

The victims included individuals and stores, with female employees in some cases being sexually assaulted.
