CLEVELAND, Ohio A Berea man will spend the next quarter-century in prison for the rape of an 81-year-old woman who survived a Soviet-era labor camp as a child.

Jason Farmer, 30, stood and watched Thursday as the woman described the gruesome incident and how it has affected her in the twilight of her life, which included watching as a young child as Nazis kill her father and her time spent as a teenager in a Siberian labor camp.

Cuyahoga County Judge Deena Calabrese sentenced Farmer, who previously pleaded guilty to rape, kidnapping and aggravated burglary in the Feb. 11 attack. Farmer is now a Tier III sex offender, meaning he must report his address to the county sheriff every 90 days for the rest of his life once he's released from prison.
