Kansas Man Sentenced to 3 Life Terms For Raping 8-Year-Old

Associated Press - May 6, 2016 6:16 pm


A 30-year-old Kansas man has been sentenced to three consecutive life sentences for abducting and repeatedly raping an 8-year-old girl.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (http://bit.ly/1ryUDd8) reports Jeremy James Lindsey must serve at least 25 years for each of the life sentences before he is eligible for parole. Once he’s finished those, he must serve 51 years for aggravated kidnapping.

The girl disappeared from her home between 10:30 p.m. Sept. 19, 2014, and 8 a.m. the next day. The girl, who was bound with a telephone cord, freed herself around 1 p.m. and fled to a nearby home for help.

The now-9-year-old told a judge on Friday she thought she was going to die when Lindsey was attacking her. District Attorney Chad Taylor called the crimes “atrocities against a precious little girl.”

Whatever happened to the good old days when a simple horse theiving got you a hanging? This man should no way be allowed to live especially when the taxpayers will be paying the state to keep him alive the whole time he’s in prison. 75 years before the eligibility of parole just save the taxpayers money and sentence him to death now?
