Man sentenced to 55 years in prison for kidnapping and raping sheriff’s deputy

A Missouri man has been sentenced to 55 years in prison for kidnapping and raping a Kansas sheriff’s deputy.

Brady Newman-Caddell, of Independence, was sentenced Friday after pleading guilty last year to rape, kidnapping and sodomy.

Another man, William Luth, of Blue Springs, Missouri, was sentenced last year to 41 years and three months in prison for his role in the crime.

Prosecutors said the two men kidnapped the Johnson County deputy in October 2016 when she arrived for work.  They forced her into a car and took turns raping and sodomizing her before eventually releasing her.  Both men were also charged in the February 2016 rape of an Independence woman.

Luth pleaded guilty in that case and was sentenced in January to 30 years.  The case against Newman-Caddell in the Missouri case is still pending.
