The former Mayor of Stockport has been sentenced to over 100 years in prison for charges including the rape of a child. Morgan County Prosecutor Mark Howdyshell says that Michael Shane Shuster must serve 105 years before he is eligible for parole on one count of gross sexual imposition, one count of sexual battery, three counts of rape of a person under the age of 13 and three counts of rape. Howdyshell says Shuster remained stoic during Wednesday’s proceedings and maintains his innocence. The judge during the trial Shuster showed a lack of remorse and added that he is a dangerous man. Shuster was arrested in March of 2012 after authorities received a call from Morgan County Children’s Services of the rape of a juvenile between October of 2006 and January of 2012.
