The Fox News alert a sentence of life without parole for aerial Castro -- an unbelievable display of resilience and hope in the face of evil.
As we heard directly from one of the three women held captive for a decade by a sick and twisted man.
Welcome to America -- -- -- every entity for Megyn Kelly.
Mario Castro learning his fate today -- -- Cleveland courthouse after pleading guilty to kidnapping three Cleveland women.
Holding him hostage for years the judge handing out that sentence after Castro wrapped up a bizarre and rambling statement claiming.
He's not a monster.
Amid a very Gina dejesus and Michelle night we're just 1614.
And twenty when they vanished.
Early -- earlier we heard from Amanda -- sister who begs people to respect her privacy so she can be the one to explain to her young daughter.
Exactly who her father is we also heard from -- -- dejesus cousin who turned and faced Castro and said in Spanish.
May god have mercy on your soul and finally.
We heard from the -- night the first woman he kidnapped.
His crimes ripped her away from her own young child but she -- her long nightmare would not ruin her.
-- Yeah yeah.
I will let them all and yeah.
Yeah that's who I am.
You're doing okay.
You look back.
As you think about it and you.
He's moving didn't -- it -- us.
Don't mean anything besides -- in here.
I think -- you have never forget.
-- I had that.
-- Random -- in game.
Gave me the strength and -- -- Everywhere let me.
I hope it.
But we eat them.
-- -- -- -- -- I had an eighteen years.
He's there in case you -- off and yeah.
Can only imagine the courage it took to do that.
Let's talk about with -- still -- a criminal defense attorney former prosecutor.
Rebecca rose woodland is a trial attorney as well and welcome to you both -- -- -- watching what.
We use the word bizarre and honestly that's one of the only words I can think -- to described Castro.
Essentially in defending himself but first let's talk about Michelle night.
What kind of courage do you think it took for her my goodness when she set from this moment on you will not define me.
I got goosebumps number one number two she spoke to him and about him.
With a sense of humanity and forgiveness that I'm sorry ladies I would not have been able to have and so that is amazing that.
For her it speaks volumes about her and it makes me feel encouraged.
That she is going to have as normal a life going forward thank god that anybody in that position could ever hope for yet and members -- is sort of basic plea agreement that was in place anyway but today the judge did hear from her from other family members of the other victims.
And he did talk to Castro about how he had impact their lives he went through those aggravating factors and talked about.
Damn what he had done and I thought that was really.
Really fabulous for the victims to get their day in court without having to had testified and -- what happened was a plea agreement.
-- remained in place after the agreement was done privately we heard today a public sentencing up public.
Justice for these three women who had been just exposed to atrocious crimes and the judge went through every single count.
And gave his justification.
For the plea to support.
What the prosecution had.
Hoped for the defense agree to but to judge -- forced.
You could have an agreement but the judge needs to enforce it well today he did and this man will never ever see the light of day never.
There and that was the deal I -- -- said he's in prison for life -- -- any chance of parole multiple years added on top of that and we haven't heard a lot from -- Castro -- through this process because it -- there's hasn't in the form port today.
I don't know what any of us expected if we thought he would take eight having -- that he worked out this plea deal with in the comments and admirable thing what are app.
I was stunned at my blood pressure and is coming down a little bit now but the fact that he talked about these acts of these -- being consensual.
The fact that there -- harmony and their howls and and the fact that he wanted people to know he's -- amongst -- and that made every woman's.
Blood boil across the nation that was just stick.
-- man now this monster had an opportunity.
To help his victims by simply getting up there and apologizing.
Doing what he did and instead he took an opportunity to grandstand and to make excuses that he was abusing when he was a child and it was -- harmony with that.
Change tool walk -- I've never consensual and I can't believe that his attorney.
Didn't I don't step on his foot that the judge did not cut him off because for my money.
That to me what is it that a disservice to all three victims and that was only part about this sensing that I didn't like the year and I still don't like the Mary.
And hopefully the three victims if they -- -- no one was in the courtroom.
We'll overcome that as well and and honestly he -- what he dig in and talking about -- and he did not a lot of the things that he had already agreed at least technically and legally to say.
Bidding will be up this is what was so infuriating as we were sitting here listening to this -- three -- and the judge said ballot -- mr.
Castro but you pled guilty to.
Violent sex crimes so you could say you aren't violent but you pled guilty to -- so.
We don't really want to hear you what the judge did was allowed in his constitutional right to speak and which.
Would preserve in an appeal any problems for this day.
Let him speak even if you don't want to hear it.
He spoke his nonsense so now but the judge reiterated what you agreed to this plane and you just -- it was.
He he killed a child in Eudora this is by his -- you created an aggravated homicide in Ohio so.
Whenever you want to say today you agreed to the -- -- You yes I did let's go home and you are sending in jail forever forever -- forever for his life we're hearing that there's going to be a news conference outside the court as soon as we get a little bit more information and and folks -- up there.
A we'll go back to that in and hear what needs to be said there.
I'm -- passionate city and there were some discussion.
Of a potential -- and we don't know exactly which accounts for timeout we know he pled guilty to 937.
-- and he's not ever getting out of jail at this and plea agreement is the way that we understand that.
Them is it possible to agree to some type of plea deal on most of the counts but reserve some right to -- -- appeal potentially and some of these issues what he didn't do with the prosecutor didn't have -- do is to waive his right to appeal on any all of the issues and mark my words -- -- -- this jerk.
It's going to be sitting -- president didn't hit it good on either -- final appeal on a piece of prison issued toilet paper I think that's according to the hill but it ain't gonna fall -- but this guy does not believe he did anything wrong and so he's just going -- this motion is not a 137 -- and he well.
File an appeal.
Assured we're all sitting here do you think he does thinking -- something wrong I know it now does he did something wrong I think it's all an act.
Because if he's claims I didn't know I did wrong that is technically the insanity defense.
You you didn't know he did he really did wrong he knew very well every single day with the chains and the abuse that he did -- he's not -- mentally he is not a legally insane person he has.
A psychopath and a socio path and he is.
Let him appeal because I sincerely hope that everyone just leads him in prison.
And we can appeal all he -- -- the constitutional right to do whatever you want based on whatever he.
Agreed to and the plea agreement doesn't matter it will not change anything he will never set foot on.
Free soil again.
All right thank you both for -- around -- kind of lending us your expertise thank you thank you.
