(Scroll down for video) A young girl of Oklahoma, went through a horrific ordeal at the hands of a perverted man.
Now, she will see justice after the 35-year-old man was sentenced to 120 years in prison after pleading no contest to the charges.
He also pleaded guilty to other charges, including throwing excrement and water at police officers.
35-year-old Michael Slatton of Tulsa, will have to spend the entire 120 years in prison before being eligible for parole.
Prosecutors said that Slatton kidnapped the 8-year-old girl while she was playing in a playground. He then removed her clothes, bound and gagged her and violently raped her multiple times.
Slatton eventually place the naked child in a sleeping bag and dumped her in a wooded area. Lieutenant Jim Madden said that when he found the girl, he thought she was dead.
However, he soon realized that she was still alive. “It was an incredible feeling that words cannot describe,” Madden said about his relief when the child opened her eyes.
Tulsa County Assistant District Attorney Sara McAmis said that the brave young girl now wants to help other victims.
