Convicted rapist sentenced to 75-100 years threatens judge, prosecutor in courtroom

Convicted rapist Bryan Preston Farmer had a few choice words for the judge and the prosecutor at his sentencing Wednesday.

Farmer, 50, called the judge a “biased bitch,” and said he would “send someone to see” her and the prosecutor, the Lansing State Journal reports.

He was sentenced to 75 to 100 years in prison for the 2012 rape of a 41-year-old mentally disabled woman.

“Animals have a better understanding of human society than this defendant,” Ingham County, Mich., Circuit Judge Rosemarie Aquilina said as she pronounced the sentence. “There is no ability to rehabilitate this defendant. He is a danger to this community and every citizen in [it].”

“He’s not going to get out” of prison, the judge added.

Prosecutors said Farmer—who was then on parole for the sexual assault of a 12-year-old girl and another woman, for which he had spent nearly 20 years in prison—lured his latest victim to his Lansing home, bound her neck and wrists, forced her to ingest whiskey and vicodin, and sexually assaulted her several times.

During the assault, they said, he held a knife to the victim’s throat and threatened to remove her teeth with pliers if she didn’t comply with his demands.

Farmer held the woman captive until the next day and then fled the area. He was captured several weeks later in Knoxville, Tenn., after being chased through several states.
