A Louisiana man who repeatedly raped a 14-year-old girl and got her pregnant has agreed to be castrated while serving his 50-year prison sentence as part of a plea deal.

Glenn Sullivan Sr., 54, of Springfield, pled guilty last month to four counts of second-degree rape, reported the New York Post. Sullivan agreed to be surgically castrated rather than chemically castrated. Unlike surgical castration, which is permanent, chemical castration is reversible when treatment is discontinued.

In 2022, police launched an investigation after the girl came forward and claimed that Sullivan had repeatedly raped her when she was 14 years old.

Louisiana passed a law in 2008 stating that if a man was convicted of certain types of rape offenses, he could be subject to surgical or chemical castration, reported the Irish Mirror.

“I want to say I’ve had three people ordered to be chemically castrated, but, to my knowledge, this is the first physical castration to be ordered,” Assistant District Attorney Brad Cascio said, reported WBRZ 2. “I felt that this case was a strong enough case and warranted such action.”

Cascio noted that the castration must be performed no later than one week before Sullivan’s release.

The case has garnered significant social media attention.

“NEW: Louisiana pedoph*le who r*ped a 14-year-old girl multiple times has been ordered to be physically castrated. Good. 54-year-old Glenn Sullivan Sr. pleaded guilty to four counts of second-degree r*pe. Sullivan impregnated a teenager by r*ping her multiple times and then terrorizing the girl and her family into silence. The girl eventually came forward, and Sullivan was charged. He was sentenced to 50 years in prison and the removal of his testicles,” Collin Rugg, co-owner of Trending Politics, posted on X, with numerous users posting in support of Sullivan being castrated for his crimes.

The Dallas Police Department has rolled out a new sexual assault reporting system that will allow hospitalized victims to speak to police by phone, as reported by DX. Sexual assault examinations cannot be conducted until a police report has been made. The new system will purportedly help speed up the process and considerably lighten the burden felt by victims. Some victims have been made to wait for hours for a police officer to show up at the hospital, leading to considerable frustration and even walk-outs, according to hospital staff.

There have been 182 sex offenses committed in Dallas this year as of May 2, including 69 instances of rape, according to the City of Dallas crime analytics dashboard.
