Convicted Rapist Will Spend 45 Years In Prison

A convicted rapist learned that he'll spend four and a half decades in prison Monday.

A Whitley County Judge took the jury's recommendation and gave William Burdine a 45 year sentence.

Burdine was convicted of sexual abuse, rape, and sodomy.

Police say he attacked a woman at the I-75 welcome center in Whitley County in 2004.

He was also accused of escaping from a Lexington hospital while being treated there, but he claimed in a jailhouse interview that he was set free.
