CLEVELAND (Reuters) - Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro admitted at a court hearing on Thursday that he was a sick man but said he is not the monster described by prosecutors as abducting and persecuting three women for years.

Castro delivered a rambling statement to the court. He is expected to be sentenced to life in prison.

Castro said he makes no excuses for his behavior, which he said was "wrong."
