Child rapist given 2 life terms

By Katherine Wartell

A Manhattan man convicted of 21 sex offenses against two minor girls was sentenced Wednesday to two consecutive life terms in prison.

John Goodpasture Jr., 43, was convicted in August of rape, aggravated indecent liberties and criminal sodomy against a 10- and a 13-year-old girl for offenses that occurred in 2010 and 2011.

District Judge David Stutzman presided over the sentencing, during which time Goodpasture told the court that he intended to appeal his sentence.
