A Harvard-educated lawyer with a bipolar disorder diagnosis has been sentenced to 40 years in prison for an elaborate, violent rape and kidnapping incident. In March 2015, Matthew Muller abducted Denise Huskins from her boyfriend’s home, and ultimately bound to her the bed of a South Lake Tahoe home. Muller repeatedly drugged and raped Huskins, while sending ransom demands to her boyfriend. Two days later, Muller dropped Huskins off more than 400 miles away from her home. Police grew suspicious and called the incident a “wild goose chase,” saying it had been a staged crime. Ultimately, the FBI identified Muller as the kidnapper. “I’m sick with shame,” Muller said at the sentencing. Huskins asked that Muller be given life in prison, saying, “I know, without a doubt or hesitation, that as long as he walks free, there will be more victims.”
