A woman who was raped on the University of Kansas campus in 1981 says she won’t stop returning to Kansas to oppose her attacker’s release on parole.
Jean Rhea, who has lived in California for more than 30 years, was 25 when a man grabbed her as she jogged, held a knife to her throat and repeatedly raped and abused her. She testified against her attacker, Sherman Galloway, who was sentenced to 30 years to life in prison, with the possibility of parole after 15 years.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports Galloway was later sentenced to another 30-to-life sentence for raping a second woman.
Rhea has returned to Kansas seven times for parole hearings, including again this year. Galloway will appear before the parole board in April.
