CLEVELAND - The Cleveland man sentenced to spend the rest of his life in prison for kidnapping and raping three women over the last decade will start his term isolated from other inmates.
A spokeswoman for Ohio's prisons department says Ariel Castro won't go into general population once he enters the state's prison system because of his high-profile case and for his own protection.
Castro will undergo medical and mental health evaluations after arriving in prison.
He remained in a Cleveland jail on Friday, a day after a judge sentenced him to life in prison without parole plus 1,000 years.
Castro struck a deal with prosecutors that spared him from a possible death sentence before admitting to imprisoning the women in his home. He pleaded guilty to aggravated murder, kidnapping and rape.
