Default Black Man nets 60 years for 2012 attempted rape of jogger



Man nets 60 years for 2012 attempted rape of jogger

Thursday, June 16, 2016 2:03 PM
A man who was found guilty by a jury last month in the 2012 attempted rape of a jogger found out what it was like to beg for his life — this time before a judge — as she sentenced him to serve 60 years for his crimes against the jogger. She also sentenced him to six months in an unrelated battery case.

Walik L. Whiteside, 19, received his sentence Thursday in Allen Superior Court before Allen Superior Court Judge Fran Gull — 20 years for the attempted rape and 20 years apiece for two counts of criminal deviate conduct, with all counts to be served consecutively, or one after another, because they involved violent acts against a woman who was jogging in broad daylight in September 2012 along the Rivergreenway near Fairfield Avenue and Lower Huntington Road. During sentencing, Gull called Whiteside a "predatory and narcissistic human being," and ordered him to serve his sentence under maximum security.

Whiteside also is serving a 25-year term for an Oct. 12, 2013, robbery in which he pulled out a revolver and demanded a victim give him everything he had. When the victim ran away, Whiteside fired a single shot that struck the victim in the back and he demanded that the victim empty his pockets. When the man complied, Whiteside fled with the cash. The shooting paralyzed the man from the waist down. Whiteside pleaded guilty Jan. 29, 2014.
