Serial Rapist Sentenced To 75 Years In Prison

Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry says Jacquese Chaney has been convicted and sentenced for raping three women and robbing them in November 2015.

INDIANAPOLIS -- A serial rapist will spend 75 years in prison. 

Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry says Jacquese Chaney has been convicted and sentenced for raping three women and robbing them in November 2015.

During his trial two years later, Chaney was found guilty of 20 counts including Rape, Attempted Rape, Robbery, Burglary and Arson

“What is effectively a life sentence is the consequence for such violent and predatory behavior in our community,” Prosecutor Curry said. “We commend the survivors who reported these crimes and cooperated in the prosecution of this defendant. Their courage to come forward in all likelihood stopped an episode of violence that would have victimized others.”

Chaney is  already serving a six-year sentence after pleading guilty to his role in an unrelated robbery at Community North Hospital in December 2015.
