"Mall Rapist" Sentenced

The man known as the "Mall Rapist" is sentenced to 180 years in prison, but 34-year-old James Perry of Stoughten faces even more time behind bars.

Perry pleaded guilty Wednesday in federal court to sexual exploitation of a child. Prosecutors say he made a tape of himself and another man assaulting two girls.

Perry is also charged with 41 counts of assault in Dane County Court.

Police worked for five years to nab Perry, whom they say targeted female workers in malls in Wisconsin and Illinois.
