Repeat rapist sentenced for his crimes

Repeat rapist sentenced for his crimes

A repeat rapist will spend 18 years behind bars for attacking two women on the same block on Cleveland's northeast side.

25-year-old Richard Miller of Charlotte, North Carolina pleaded guilty on January 6 to two counts of rape.

The attacks were committed during home invasions in 2005 and 2006.

The victim in each case reported that she had been asleep and was awakened by an unknown assailant who then raped her.

Both women immediately sought medical attention and their rape kits held the evidence that eventually led investigators to Miller.

Miller was convicted in Cuyahoga County in 2013 for drug trafficking and receiving stolen property.

He has an open felony case for Breaking and Entering in North Carolina.
