LIVINGSTON - A man from Springfield was sentenced to 50 years in prison and physical castration after pleading guilty to raping a 14-year-old girl multiple times. 

District Attorney Scott Perrilloux's Office said 54-year-od Glenn Sullivan Sr. pleaded guilty to four counts of second-degree rape on Wednesday. 

The DA's office said in July of 2022, a young woman went to law enforcement and told them that Sullivan raped her multiple times when she was 14 and impregnated her as a teenager. A DNA test ordered during the trial confirmed that Sullivan was the father. The victim told detectives that Sullivan threatened to hurt her and her family if she told anyone about the abuse. 

In addition to 50 years in prison, Sullivan will be physically castrated. 

“Sex crimes against juveniles are the most malicious crimes we prosecute. I intend on using every tool the legislature is willing to give us, including physical castration, to seek justice for the children in our community,” Assistant District Attorney Brad J. Cascio said.
