Kelly Sentenced to 16 Years

A rapist who fled to Europe for eight years to avoid trial was sentenced July 24 to sixteen years in prison. Alex Kelly was an eighteen-year old high school wrestler when two women charged him with rape. One of the victims, Adrienne Bak Ortolano, urged the judge to give her attacker the maximum sentence of 20-years for raping her when she was sixteen. Kelly was denied bail while he appeals his conviction and waits for his second trial.
