A storm system will begin to impact Southern Colorado by late this morning. Mountain locations will simply see snow, but lower elevations will see rain eventually change to snow by later this afternoon. Locations higher in elevation will see the heaviest snow, due to colder temperatures. So then, Teller County, far northwest El Paso County, and the Wet & Sangre de Cristo Mountains will likely see several inches of wet snow. The major cities will see far less snow and the storm will exit toward early Saturday morning.
A 36-year-old serial rapist facing a millennium in prison is admitting to even more crimes -- and drawing an additional 190 years to life.
Brent J. Brents pleaded guilty in an Arapahoe County courtroom Friday to six counts stemming from the robbery and sexual assault of an Aurora woman, and the molestation of a young boy.
Brents' attorney says his client pleaded guilty because he knew he'd never be freed, and wanted to spare his victims any more trauma.
The mother of the now-nine-year-old boy spoke in court, saying she hoped Brents would have a long life to spend behind bars.
A Denver judge sentenced Brents on Wednesday to more than 1,300 years for his guilty pleas to 68 felony counts.
His total sentence now equals 1,509 years
The Arapahoe County charges to which Brents pleaded guilty include sexual assault on a child, sexual assault on a child by person in position of trust, and being a habitual sexual offender -- in addition to sexual assault, burglary and robbery.
Arapahoe County prosecutor John Hower says the victims are satisfied with Brents' sentence.
