Suburban Chicago Man Pleads Guilty to Rape Charge

WOODSTOCK, Ill. (AP) - A suburban Chicago man convicted of raping a woman he met on Craigslist has pleaded guilty Monday to raping a Huntley woman in January 2013 who he also met on online.

As part of a plea deal, prosecutors Monday dismissed charges that Charles R. Oliver of Woodstock attacked six other women. McHenry County Assistant State's Attorney Sharyl Eisenstein said the 120-year sentence Oliver faces is the maximum he would have faced had he been convicted in all eight cases.

Last month, the 45-year-old Oliver was convicted of raping a 22-year-old Chicago woman. 

Prosecutors contended Oliver pushed the woman to the floor in his locked basement laundry room Nov. 6, 2012, before videotaping them having sex in his bedroom.  Oliver eventually took the woman back to a Rosemont train station.
