Rapist sentencing

    Jose Carrasquillo, who pleaded guilty to raping an 11 year old girl last year, will be sentenced later today.  Prosecutors are expected to seek a life sentence for Carrasquillo, who was beaten by his Kensington neighbors before he was apprehended for the crime.

    WHYY’s Lizz Fiedler is heading out to the sentencing and will report back later.
