Raven Smith, 35, was sentenced last week after pleading guilty to various counts of rape and sexual abuse in Houston County, Alabama, the US. 

He apologised to the victims’ families in court but they demanded the maximum sentence for his abominable crimes. 

All of the girls were under 16 years old and the crimes began as far back as 2011. 

Judge Todd Derrick ended up giving Jones the sentence after hearing an emotional plea from one of the girls’ mothers.

She told US media: “I can’t believe what I said meant that much to a judge to punish this man the way I wanted him to be (punished).”

The mum, who has not been identified for legal reasons, also believes there are more victims who are yet to come forward. 

She added: “I don’t want them to be afraid anymore.  I want them to know he’s in jail and can’t ever hurt them or anyone else.”

Assistant Houston County District Attorney JT Jones, said: “When you deal with cases that involve children, particularly young children, it’s going to hit your heart strings every time. 

“You get to know them and the pain they go through.”

Owing to his sentence, it is unlikely that Smith will ever be paroled. 

“I can’t believe what I said meant that much to a judge to punish this man the way I wanted him to be”

However, his lawyers are reportedly planning to challenge the judge’s ruling. 

Last week, another evil paedophile was jailed after raping his one-year-old daughter and uploading the footage to the dark web. 

James Lockhart, 31, of Bradenton, Florida, received the maximum sentence for his abominable crimes. 

He pled guilty to producing, distributing and possessing child abuse footage in March and has now been caged.
