Judge sentences serial Indy rapist to 100 years

A serial rapist convicted of assaulting four prostitutes likely will spend the rest of his life in prison after an Indianapolis judge sentenced him to 100 years in prison.

Quanardel Wells of Indianapolis already was serving an 80-year sentence for the 2008 sexual assault of a 16-year-old girl when a Marion County jury convicted him last week of four counts of criminal deviate conduct, two counts of criminal confinement and one count each of rape and strangulation.

Marion Superior Court Judge Mark Stoner handed down the new sentence Thursday.

Prosecutors say the 43-year-old Wells confined, raped, tortured and abused four prostitutes in the summer of 2009.

From 1998 to 2005, Wells was acquitted by multiple juries in five cases involving sexual assault and robbery.
