SHARE TEXAN GETS 5-TO-LIFE IN RAPE OF A CHILD

A Texas man has been sentenced to five years to life in prison after earlier pleading guilty to rape of a child.

The defendant, David C. Carrion, 47, pleaded guilty to the charge following plea negotiations with the Utah County attorney's office. Originally, he was to be tried on two counts of sodomy of a child - first-degree felonies that would have meant minimum mandatory prison sentences of five, 10 or 15 years.The charges stem from incidents that occurred in Spanish Fork between June 28 and July 4, 1988, involving a 13-year-old girl.
