Child Rapist Gets 60 Years In Prison

A Sioux Falls man is headed to prison for 60 years for raping a girl so young she was still wearing diapers. A judge sentenced 38-year-old Barry Thunder Thursday afternoon for one count of rape and four counts of making child porn.

Even though a jury convicted him of raping a three-year-old girl and recording the crime with a cell phone, Thunder still claimed in court Thursday he's not guilty. He's now headed to prison for six decades to think about the crime he says he didn't do.

Even though Thunder is not accepting responsibilty for the videos and the rape, the prosecution believes the community is now safer after the sentence.
