Whitewater man gets life in prison for attacking girls

JANESVILLE, Wis. (AP) — A 42-year-old man has been sentenced to life in prison for an attack that left two young girls with life-threatening injuries in Walworth County.

The Janesville Gazette reports Larry Shannon, of Whitewater, stared at the ceiling and smirked as he was sentenced Friday.

In February, he was convicted of tying up two girls for hours after slashing their necks with a kitchen knife, sexually assaulting one girl and leading law enforcement on a two-county chase in October 2012.

Judge David Reddy sentenced Shannon to life with no chance of extended supervision for causing great bodily harm during the sexual assault of a child younger than 13. For the remaining 11 convictions, he was sentenced to another 145 years and nine months of confinement with 60 years of extended supervision.
