Michael Luther, 19, has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for sexually assaulting at least five neighborhood boys, including a 4 year old.  I feel like a monster, Luther told the judge before he was sentenced in Superior Court.  He was given 20 years in prison and 25 years on probation for raping one boy several times between 2000 and 2002, and molesting four others, including a disabled youngster.  The abuse was uncovered after Luther held a knife to his throat in the home of one victim on September 24, 2002, threatening to kill himself.  Luther raped his youngest victim at least three times and engaged in other sexual contact with the boy almost every day over two years.  After he was arrested, he sexually assaulted a fellow inmate, then 14, at the Cheshire Correctional Institution.
