Ariel Castro pleads guilty in Ohio kidnap case


By ANDREW WELSH-HUGGINS

CLEVELAND -- A Cleveland man accused of holding three women captive in his home for about a decade has pleaded guilty in a deal to avoid the death penalty.
 
Ariel Castro pleaded guilty Friday to 937 counts. In exchange, prosecutors are recommending the 53-year-old be sentenced to life without parole plus 1,000 years.
 
Castro says a pornography addiction and "sexual problem" have taken a toll on his mind. He also says he was sexually abused as a child.
 
A judge accepted the pleas and declared Castro guilty. Sentencing is Aug. 1.
 
Castro had been awaiting trial on a 977-count indictment. The allegations include repeatedly restraining the women and punching and starving one woman until she had a miscarriage.
 
The women disappeared separately between 2002 and 2004. They escaped from Castro's house May 6.
