'Wooded Rapist' Receives 50-Year Sentence 7-13-2010

Robert Jason Burdick received a 50-year prison sentence Tuesday after he was convicted in May of raping a 16-year-old Brentwood girl in 1999.
Burdick, a former security company owner, was found guilty of the aggravated rape and aggravated kidnapping of Elizabeth Miller at gunpoint at her home while her parents slept upstairs.
Before the trial began, Burdick refused a plea bargain of 20 years in prison.
He has now been convicted and sentenced in four cases and sentenced a total of 112 years in prison.
Burdick earned the nickname "Wooded Rapist" because his victims always lived near the woods and the attacks happened on rainy nights, according to police.
