Man sentenced to 250 years for serial rapes
September 20, 2006 CROWN POINT, Ind. - A Gary man has been sentenced to 250 years in prison for a series of rapes.
Forty-four-year-old Francis Lamarr Sims was convicted of 22 felony counts, including five counts of rape.
He was charged in a series of rapes that occurred in Gary between 2000 and 2002. Lake County Prosecutor Bernard Carter says Sims was linked to the crimes by D-N-A evidence.
A routine D-N-A screening while Sims was in prison on other charges connected him to 18 unsolved rapes. He was prosecuted on five of the cases.
