A 19-year-old South Bend man will spend 28 years behind bars after pleading guilty to Attempted Rape.  Isaac Miller admitted to Attempted Rape, Criminal Confinement, and Strangulation in December 2013.

Police say that in September 2013, Miller held a Department of Child services caseworker at knife point in his apartment on West Flint Court, after the caseworker became uncomfortable and tried to leave the apartment. Police say Miller forced the caseworker into the bathroom, removed her clothing, strangled her and attempted to rape her. Police say that when the caseworker tried to call 911, Miller broke her phone. Eventually, the caseworker was able to get away by running out of the house to get help.

Miller was sentenced to 48 years, with 20 years suspended on probation.  He will also have to register as a sex offender for life.
