(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - The Blue-Eyed Rapist has been sentenced for an attack in Dearborn County.
David S. Hopper, 46
David Hopper had pleaded guilty in Dearborn Circuit Court last November for an attack on a female employee at an Aurora shoe store in 2004. The charges include Criminal Deviate Conduct with a Deadly Weapon, Robbery with a Deadly Weapon, and Criminal Confinement with a Deadly Weapon.
Charges of Attempted Rape and Sexual Battery were dropped in exchange for Hopper’s plea.
On Dec. 14, Judge James Humphrey sentenced Hopper to 70 years in prison. Fifty of the years stem from the Criminal Deviate Conduct charge which will be served consecutively by the Robbery and Criminal Confinement times, served concurrently.
Hopper, 46, is already serving 206 years in prison for several other attacks in Ohio and Kentucky over a 14 year period, ending after DNA evidence linked him to an attack in Hamilton County, Oh. in 2006.
The judge estimated Hopper’s total cost to the state for the 70 year sentence at more than $1 million.
