ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. (KSDK) - A 20-year-old University City man will spend the next 20 years in prison after pleading guilty earlier this summer to a rape charge, the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney's Office said Wednesday.
Prosecutors filed 12 felony counts against Dannell Wise, including kidnapping, forcible rape, robbery and armed criminal action.
On October 2, 2010, Wise and another man robbed two young women in a car in the parking lot of Sunswept Apartments in Florissant.
Police said the men displayed a handgun and forced their way into the women's car. After forcing the women to drive to another location, both women were sexually assaulted.
Wise pleaded guilty to all 12 charges in June 2013. He was sentenced to 10 years concurrent on the armed criminal action charges, 10 years concurrent on the kidnapping charges, 4 years concurrent on the sexual misconduct charge, and 20 years on the forcible rape charge.
