Klaudt Sentenced To 44 Years
January 17, 2008, 1:50 PM
A judge sentenced former state representative Ted Klaudt to 44 years in prison today, 11 years for each of the four rape convictions.
He faced up to 100 years for raping two of his foster daughters as part of a scheme to sell their reproductive eggs.
The judge said while Klaudt has done good in his life, he didn't appear to show sympathy for his victims or understand what he did was wrong. Klaudt was immediately taken into state custody and won't be eligible for parole from the state penitentiary until he's served at least 22 years.
Lou Raguse will have the latest on Klaudt's sentencing from Pierre tonight on KELOLAND 5 and 6.
