The man found guilty in the brutal rape of a Greenwood mother was sentenced Monday to more than 200 years in prison.

Shawn Corbally, 34, was found guilty on charges that included burglary resulting in bodily injury, criminal deviate conduct, rape and criminal confinement.  He was sentenced to serve 270 years in prison.

In July 2012, Corbally raped a woman at her Greenwood apartment, while her children were nearby. The jury reached a quick verdict due to strong DNA evidence at the scene and witness testimony, according to Johnson County Prosecutor Brad Cooper.

Corbally committed the crime shortly after being released from the Marion County Jail last summer. His release caused public outrage, prompting officials to make changes to how sex offenders are monitored after they are released from jail.

Investigators said Corbally and his family members lied about the convicted rapist’s sex offender status and that’s why he was free to attack again.

Corbally was also previously sentenced to 25 years in prison for raping and beating another woman in 2000.
