Zaren Wiesenborn, 19, was sentenced to more than 78 years in prison in a Montgomery County courtroom Tuesday morning.
Wiesenborn pleaded guilty to 13 counts of rape and gross sexual imposition and seven counts of kidnapping, involving a 17-year-old girl known to him, according to the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office.
According to court records, detectives said Wiesenborn “admitted he liked feeling the power of control over (the girl) and he would do these actions as a punishment toward her for aggravating him.”
“Thankfully, this victim had the tremendous courage to come forward and disclose what (Wiesenborn) had done to her,” Montgomery County Prosecutor Mat Heck said in a media release.
