Oregon ‘pedophile’ faces 2,750-year jail sentence

By Brinkwire

An alleged pedophile who is accused of raping a six-year-old girl more than a hundred times is facing 2,750 years behind bars.

David McCutcheon, 36, could be handed the sentence if he is convicted of the 220 charges laid against him.

McCutcheon was arrested last Wednesday in Cottage Grove, Oregon and faces 70 counts of rape, 40 counts of sodomy and 110 counts of criminal mistreatment relating to the alleged abuse of a girl beginning when she was six years old.

The 36-year-old reportedly confessed to the allegations made against him to police last Monday.

He was interviewed by detectives from Eugine for two days before being passed over to Cottage Grove investigators following a May 26 report.

He is being held at Lane County Jail.

In the state of Oregon, rape carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 25 years while sodomy carries a mandatory minimum sentence of over 8 years, which increases to 25 years if the victim is under the age of 12.

If the judge chooses to make McCutcheon serve his prison time consecutively, he could face 70 counts of first-degree rape, which is 1,750 years, in addition to 40 counts of sodomy, which would add another thousand years.

If given a consecutive prison sentence, McCutcheon faces a longer punishment than serial rapist Billy Joe Godfrey, who was given 35 life sentences to be served consecutively, the equivalent of 1050 years in 2015.

Godfrey plead guilty to sexually abusing two children between 1995 and 1999. The children were between the ages of eight and 13 at the time of the assaults.

McCutcheon’s next court appearance is scheduled for July 16.
