A former Livingston County man pleaded guilty Thursday and was sentenced for the kidnapping and rape of a woman in 1983.

Gary Smith, 66, pleaded guilty to rape, sodomy, kidnapping and bail jumping.

According to the Livingston County District Attorney's Office, Smith was sentenced to eight and 1/3 to 25 years. Smith also received an additional one and 1/3 to four years on other charges.

Smith was arrested in June in Ohio. He was a fugitive for 28 years. He says he is suffering from prostate cancer.

Smith fled Livingston County in 1985 after failing to show up for his rape trial.
