A southwest suburban Chicago man has been sentenced to 120 years in prison for sexually assaulting a woman after breaking into her home and forcing her to sexually abuse her five-month-old daughter.
The sentence given to 37-year-old James Murphy of Oak Forest on Monday was the maximum allowed by law.
In handing down the sentence, DuPage County Circuit Judge Daniel Guerin said forcing a mother to what she did was an act “the devil himself would be loathe to commit.”
Prosecutors say Murphy carried out the attack in August 2005 after cutting a window screen to enter the woman’s apartment. Murphy was arrested 10 months later after committing another rape in Chicago. He was sentenced to 30 years in prison after being convicted in that attack.
