Indianapolis man gets 125 years for Bloomington rapes

April 2, 2018

An Indianapolis man convicted of 14 felonies for raping and robbing two Indiana University students has been sentenced to 125½ years in prison.

Monroe Circuit Judge Marc Kellams said 22-year-old Vaylan Glazebrook has shown no remorse for the crimes and found no mitigating circumstances to reduce the sentence Thursday.

Kellams said the two female victims experienced a living nightmare during which Glazebrook and co-defendant Michael Deweese held them at gunpoint in 2014.

The Herald-Times reports Glazebrook also was convicted of attempted murder for shooting at a Bloomington police officer who responded to a 911 call from a third woman who shared the apartment and hid in her bedroom closet.

Glazebrook made no pre-sentencing statement. He said he’ll appeal his convictions and sentence.

Deweese received a 109½-year sentence in 2016.
