Kansas man given eight life sentences for assaulting girls

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – A 34-year-old man with a history of sexually abusing children was given eight life sentences after being convicted of sexually assaulting two young girls.

The Sedgwick County District Attorney’s office said Clinton Decaire was sentenced Friday for multiple counts of rape and aggravated indecent liberties with a child.

Five of the life sentences will run consecutively, meaning Decaire would have to serve 272 years before being eligible for parole.

Prosecutors said Decaire began assaulting the girls in 2019, when they were ages 6 and 8.

He was convicted in 2005 of three counts of rape involving a 13-year-old girl and has been a registered sex offender since 2006.
