Kansas man sentenced to 3 life terms for raping 8-year-old

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — 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 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.”
