A 38-year-old man has been sentenced to 100 years in prison for kidnapping a Clemson University student, locking her in the storage unit he was living in and raping her.
Multiple media outlets reported that Dennis Temple received the maximum sentence after a jury convicted him Wednesday of kidnapping, criminal sexual conduct and larceny.
Temple represented himself in the three-day trial after dismissing four court-appointed attorneys. He questioned the victim Monday.
The then-19-year-old victim says she went to drop off some belongings at a storage unit in Seneca on May 9, when Temple forced her into his unit. She says Temple stole her car and locked her inside the unit, where she found a cell phone and called 911.
