WATCH: Ariel Castro's Son Says His Father Belongs Behind Bars


Anthony Castro -- the son of the Cleveland man who will be spending the rest of his life in prison for the kidnapping and rape of three young women -- made an appearance on the TODAY Show to speak out on his father Ariel Castro's sentencing.

According to, Anthony told TODAY Show host Savannah Guthrie that his father received the "best possible sentence" for the decade-long imprisonment of Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight.

“I think that if he really can’t control his impulses and he really doesn’t have any value for human life, the way this case has shown, then behind bars is where he belongs for the rest of his life,” Anthony told the TODAY Show host during the exclusive interview.
