A man found guilty of four counts of rape of a child in a June trial was sentenced to 28 years in prison last week.
Adam O’Brian McDaniel will have to serve 100% of the sentence before he is eligible for release, though he will get credit for half a year he has already spent behind bars.
McDaniel was originally charged with 22 counts of rape of a child, but 18 were dropped when his case was sent to the grand jury.
It was in May 2015 when McDaniel reportedly sexually abused a five year old. He was arrested in June of that year.
At the time of McDaniel’s arrest, Monroe County Sheriff’s Detective Wes Martin said he and Captain John Acuff talked with the child who said McDaniel, 25, had sexually abused him several times. Martin said McDaniel was advised of his Miranda rights twice and signed a waiver saying he would talk to detectives.
Martin said McDaniel admitted to all of the allegations and he knew what he was doing was wrong but it had “felt good.”
McDaniel, 30, Madisonville, will be 58 when he is released from prison and will then have to register as a sex offender.
