Alleged paedophile accused of raping six-year-old girl faces 2,750 years behind bars

0


The man, David McCutcheon, 36 from Oregon USA, could be handed a sentence of 2,750 years after being accused of committing 70 counts of first-degree rape, 40 counts of first-degree sodomy and 110 counts of criminal mistreatment against a child under 12.

Although, he will only face this record length of time if he is found guilty or pleads guilty to charges. 

An investigation began when a report was handed to the Eugen Police Department on May 26.

Detectives from the Eugene Police Department handed the case over to officers at the Cottage Grove department.

Detectives then interviewed the accused last week before he was taken into custody.

Local officers from the Cottage Grove police department said the 39-year-old had confessed to the offences.

The offences had been taken place over several years.

In the US state, rape carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 25 years.

Sodomy carries a minimum sentence of 25 years if the victim is under the age of 12.

If the accused is sentenced and forced to serve his time consecutively, he could face 1,750 years for 70 counts of first-degree rape.

An additional 40 counts of sodomy would add another 1,000 years to the sentence.

He is due to appear in court on July 16, 2020.

His sentence could surpass that of serial rapist Billy Joe Godfrey.

Godfrey was given a sentence of 1,050 years for 35 counts of statutory sodomy in the first degree.

The 52-year-old from Rolla, Missouri plead guilty to abusing two children from 1995 to 1999.

The children were aged between eight and 13.

In reference to Godfrey’s case, prosecuting attorney, Brendon Fox insisted it was one of the worst cases he had ever seen.

He added: “This was the worst case of child sexual abuse I have ever seen.

“These victims were subjected to hundreds of incidents of child abuse over many years.

“Too often victims of sexual abuse suffer in silence for years due to embarrassment and shame.

“To come forward they have said that they will not suffer in silence, and I hope other victims becomes empowered and also come forward to confront their abusers.”

During the trial in 2015, both victims made statement during the sentencing hearing.
