ALAMOGORDO, N.M. (KRQE)- The New Mexico man who raped a 4-year-old girl will spend more than three decades in prison.
The girl’s parents caught 22-year-old Jason Whitt assaulting a girl in an Alamogordo bathroom last year. The father pulled out a gun and ordered him out of the home before police arrived.
Whitt pleaded guilty to two counts of child rape. This week, Judge Steven Blankinship sentenced Whitt to 36-years behind bars.
Whitt will also be required to register as a sex offender for life.
In a previous story, KRQE’s headline said 26 years in prison, which is incorrect. He is serving 36 years.
