Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro sentenced, victim Michelle Knight speaks

A judge sentenced Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro to life in prison, plus 1,000 years.

Castro spoke at the hearing, insisting he wasn't a "violent sexual predator."

And despite saying he wasn't making excuses for his behavior, Castro  said he and his victims lived in a "happy household" and that the women wanted to have sex with him.

Judge Michael Russo was stern with Castro, reminding him he pleaded guilty to rape charges.

The most emotional moment came when victim Michelle Knight addressed the court.

She read an impact statement in which she told Castro "I will live on. You will die a little every day."

Knight also gave credit to Gina DeJesus, saying their friendship was "the only good thing" to come from the situation.
