A 27-year-old Glen Burnie man was sentenced to 20 years in prison yesterday for raping a Severna Park woman at knifepoint in her bedroom last March.
Michael Todd Curlett, of the 7500 block Whaler Court, pleaded guilty in August to first-degree rape in exchange for a maximum sentence of 20 years.
Circuit Judge Raymond G. Thieme Jr. handed down the maximum sentence yesterday.
Assistant State's Attorney Ronald M. Naditch said Curlett, an employee of a painting company, broke into a Severna Park home March 11 and raped a 42-year-old woman. Naditch said Curlett blamed his behavior on drug and alcohol abuse.
