SPRINGFIELD, La. (WKRC) – A judge sentenced a man to physical castration and 50 years in prison for raping a 14-year-old girl.

According to PEOPLE, 54-year-old Glenn Sullivan Senior pleaded guilty to four counts of second-degree rape on April 17. Per the publication, a Louisiana judge mandated Sullivan to be physically castrated after sentencing him to 50 years in prison as part of a plea agreement with prosecutors.

“I want to say I’ve had three people ordered to be chemically castrated but, to my knowledge, this is the first physical castration to be ordered,” Assistant District Attorney Brad Cascio said, according to WBRZ.

Per the station, Cascio said he pushed for the sentence due to Sullivan’s criminal history and the severity of the case.

“I felt that this case was a strong enough case and warranted such action,” Cascio said, per the outlet.

In 2008, Louisiana enacted a law that allows for the chemical castration of men convicted of certain rape offenses. Those convicted men may also opt for the surgical removal of their testicles.

Sullivan chose the latter option, according to WBRZ.

Per PEOPLE, the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office launched an investigation in July of 2022 after a young woman told authorities that Sullivan had raped her several times at the age of 14. According to the publication, citing a statement from authorities, the teen became pregnant and a DNA test ordered during the investigation “proved Sullivan had impregnated her.”

A district attorney commended Detective Ryan Bernard, Cascio and the young victim for filing the charges against Sullivan, according to PEOPLE.

“So many of these types of cases go unreported because of fear. The strength it must have taken for this young woman to tell the truth in the face of threats and adversity is truly incredible,” the district attorney said, per the publication.
