An Alabama man was sentenced to 198 years in prison for raping a 68-year-old woman after a 2019 car crash.

Terrance Devonte Cobb entered a blind plea Monday. He was scheduled to stand trial for first-degree rape, sodomy, kidnapping and shooting into an occupied vehicle Monday before unexpectedly entering a blind plea.

Cobb was convicted of raping and sodomizing a 68-year-old woman in 2019 after his vehicle collided with hers. Investigators said after the crash, Cobb shot into the victim’s vehicle with a stolen weapon and forced her to drive to another location where he raped her.

After Cobb entered into the plea, a circuit judge handed down a combined 198-year sentence for five felony counts.
