Men sentenced for gang rape of 11-Year-Old
Two men were in a Milwaukee County courtroom Wednesday to be sentenced for their involvement in the gang rape of an 11-year-old girl.
Twenty men and boys were accused of taking part in the attack at a home on Milwaukee's north side.
Eighteen-year-old Darnell Cheney was sentenced first. Prosecutors recommended he get anywhere from 7-to-9 years. Instead, Judge Jeffery Wagner sentenced him to 15 years behind bars.
His mother burst into tears and moans. The defendant cursed as deputies escorted him out of the courtroom.
Forty-year-old Freeman Gurley was sentenced next. He's the oldest suspect in this case. His defense attorney claimed Gurley thought the 11-year-old girl was older and willing participant.
A judge didn't buy that excuse and sentenced him to 25 years behind bars.
