Ariel Castro Agrees to Life Sentence Without Parole, Says Porn Addiction Lead Him To Kidnapping

By Vineworker

Ariel Castro, charged with the abduction of three women whom he held as sex slaves for over a decade in Ohio, agreed on Friday to a plea bargain to avoid the death penalty, and told the court his addiction to pornography and "sex problems" had taken a toll on his mind.

"My addiction to pornography and my sexual problem has really taken a toll on my mind," Castro told the judge when asked how good his English is and if he could understand what it means for him to plead guilty to 937 counts in a deal to avoid the death penalty.

Prosecutors have asked Castro to be sentenced to life without parole in addition to at least 1,000 years.

Castro, a 53 year-old man from Cleveland, Ohio, had trouble with comprehension. He also told Judge Michael J. Russo he himself had been a sexual abuse victim, according to The Associated Press. "I would like to state I was a victim as a child and it just kept going."

After two and a half hours of the hearing, the judge accepted the pleas and declared Castro guilty. The sentencing has been scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 1.
