CLEVELAND (AP) - A judge in northeast Ohio has sentenced a sex offender to more than 28 years in prison for raping a child, possessing child pornography and a host of other crimes.

The Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) County prosecutor’s office says 39-year-old Amauris Zaiter of Cleveland pleaded guilty in July to multiple crimes including rape and gross sexual imposition. He was sentenced to 28 ½ years in prison on Tuesday.

Zaiter’s live-in girlfriend first reported that he stabbed her cat with a sword and then beat her up when she confronted him. She also told police that she had seen Zaiter viewing child pornography on his computer.

A search of the computer turned up hundreds of child pornography files, including a self-produced file showing Zaiter having sex with a child.
